Recording Guide Updated

In 99% of the cases, when you are using eValid to record a web application test, the recording process is accurate and complete: "What you see and what you do is what eValid records and plays back." But that other 1% is often where web application testers run into difficulty -- when you think you've recorded an action correctly but it doesn't play back correctly.

The key to success is to know what you are trying to do, on what kind of object, and what kind of action you expect. Naturally, this requires that you know the application you are testing fairly well, but even if you do there are those "unusual cases".

So we have put together a complete eValid Recording Guide that shows the full range of objects you might see in a web application page, and how to respond to each one. You might note that use of the eValid PageMap will be a big help in seeing what's really behind what you see on the page.
