Setting Mouse Move Preferences

Specify whether mouse move actions are recorded for Web applications, Win32 applications, and Windows Forms applications that use mouse move events. You cannot record mouse move events for child domains of the xBrowser technology domain, for example Apache Flex and Swing.

  1. Click Tools > Options.
  2. Click the plus sign (+) next to Record in the Options menu tree.
    The Record options display in the right side panel.
  3. Click General.
  4. To record mouse move actions, select Yes from the Record mouse move actions list box. Select Yes if you are testing a web page that uses mouse move events. Silk Test Workbench will only record mouse move events that cause changes to the hovered element or its parent in order to keep scripts short.
  5. If you record mouse move actions, in the Record mouse move delay text box, specify how many milliseconds the mouse has to be motionless before a MoveMouse action is recorded By default this value is set to 200. Mouse move actions are only recorded if the mouse stands still for this time. A shorter delay will result in more unexpected move mouse actions, a longer delay will require you to keep the mouse still to record an action.
  6. Click OK.
