How to Use RIA Image Capture

Glossary: RIA Picture

RIA Image recording is a function available from the left-hand toolbar of the EveryStep Web Recorder under RIA Recorder.

After pressing the Image button, you can click and drag your mouse cursor to select any area of the page. This will create a reference image used to verify the site content later.

This image is also an anchor for further actions. This means that mouse clicks and movements within an RIA Image capture area will be tied—not to the overall site grid—but to exact coordinates relative to the specified image.

This gives you additional flexibility and precision while working with dynamic RIA sites based on technologies that do not generate Document Object Model (DOM) elements, such as Flash, Silverlight, Java, Flex, etc.

Even elements that move within the browser window can be identified and monitored using this tool.

A demonstration of RIA capabilities and the recording process is available in the “How To: Recording an RIA Script” video.
