The Session Recorder Icon
Getting Feedback During and After Recording
7-9
With network recording, the window displays the number of IP packets and the
bytes in these packets. However, the information may not be from your
computer only. For example, if you are recording the activities of any client, in
the Client list, the Session Recorder window reports the activity of all clients on
the network, not just the activity of your computer.
With proxy recording, the window displays the number of IP packets and the
bytes in these packets.
The Session Recorder Icon
During recording, the icon associated with the Session Recorder window is
displayed on the taskbar. The icon blinks whenever Robot is capturing a request or
response. This icon serves as a visual cue that Robot is recording, even when the
Session Recorder window is minimized.
The Session Recorder After Recording
The Session Recorder captures "raw" client API calls or network IP packets -- in
other words, the calls or packets as they exist before Robot converts them into
appropriate scripting language commands.
When recording ends, Robot stores the calls or packets as follows:
Robot stores the calls or packets in a session file (.wch) in the same raw form that
the packets have when captured.
Robot translates the calls or packets into VU commands and stores them in one
or more .s script files.
NOTE: At any time, you can regenerate new script files from the stored .wch file.
For more information, see Regenerating Scripts from a Session on page 7-18.
