For example, if your prefix for a script is
Script
,
Script1
is the default script
name for the first script you record,
Script2
is the default script name for the
second script you record, and so on.
During recording, when you are prompted to define a script or session name, you
can accept the default name, modify it, or change it completely.
Optionally, you can leave either or both of these boxes blank, so that session and
script names consist of the names that you define during recording.
Names can have a maximum of 40 characters. Consequently, the maximum length
of a prefix is 40 characters, less the number of digits in the numeric suffix of the last
script or session that you recorded.

With API recording, you must start the client after you begin the recording process,
when Robot prompts you to do so. As a result, the
Prompt for application name on

check box is disabled with API recording.
With network or proxy recording, you can start the client before or after you begin
recording. However, connection information is sometimes lost if you start the
application before you begin recording. We recommend that you start the
application after you begin recording.
If you start the client after you begin recording, you can have Robot prompt you to
start the client, or you can start it without being prompted (for example, if the client
is running on a computer different from Robot).
A custom recorder recognizes the Start Application check box only if it is configured
to do so.
