Glossary: RIA Picture
RIA Picture recording is a function available from the left-hand menu of the EveryStep Script Editor under RIA recording.
After pressing the “RIA Picture” 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 click and mouse moves within an RIA Picture capture action will be tied not to the overall site grid, but to exact coordinates relative to the specified image.
This gives you additional flexibility while working with dynamic RIA sites based on HTML5, AJAX, Flash, Java, Flex etc.
Even moving elements may 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.
