eValid -- Frame_Path Conventions
eValid Home

This page describes how eValid handles frame path naming. See also the Script Principles description.

Web pages can have no frames or they can have frames (including iframes) of any number and arranged in any hierarchy. In some applications, frames are received in the web page in different order from download to download. This behavior is rare, but usually is easy to deal with by choosing to record and process all frame paths with frame names (rather than frame numbers).

The eValid setting that determins whether you record/play with frame numbers or frame names is called "Record Frame Names as Ordinal Values", which is the default. This option is set in the Record Settings area.

Frame Path Determination
The general structure of eValid commands is as follows:

command wid idx modifier [ modifier ] { frame_path } [ NAV | NO_NAV ]
