eValid -- Script Window
The eValid script window displays a record/play script as it being
created, and shows it's operation during playback.
The script window is updated each time a new command is recorded.
During recording, you can use the script window dialog to handle
a variety of script-oriented actions.
- Direct Script Definition Access Feature
To see the complete definition
(detailed command syntax and complete explanation)
of ANY command
in the script window:
- Make sure the script is in edit mode.
- Highlight on the command keyword.
- Type Ctrl-Click-Click, i.e. "Control-Double-Click."
eValid will then open a new window and
display the complete script documentation for that particular command.
- File Pulldown
The File PullDown gives you this display:
These options select new or old
functional test (*.evs) scripts,
load test test (*.evl) scripts,
save scripts, etc.
The Revert To Saved
option restores a script that
was incorrectly edited.
- Edit Pulldown
The Edit PullDown gives you this display:
These options provide for editing of the current script
in a variety of ways.
- Conventional Edit Commands
These options include the conventional

In addition there are Select All, and
Edit options, also with the conventional meanings.
- Comment Processing
The Comment Selected
options make it easy to comment out commands or passages of
commands in your script that are not needed.
The second option is the reverse of the first.
- Edit > Encode Input Text
The option to Encode Input Text instructs
eValid to encode/encrypt any text input
(e.g. a login and password).
Once encrypted eValid will plaintext
the information when filling in the form
(but the user may not see it in plaintext
depending on how the page treats that field).
The resulting input entries in the script file will be encoded
using an internal algorithm that will be used to decode
the encrypted entry when needed during playback.
What you see in the script file is the encoded version of that
CAUTION: When this option is turned ON eValid
will encode (encrypt) ALL text entries it encounteres
until the option is turned OFF.
It is good practice to ONLY encode text input for account
passwords and any other sensitive information.
