TruClient includes multiple record and replay enhancements, improving object recognition and handling, and making the record and replay process more robust and efficient. This includes better automated end event heuristics, and improved drag and drop support.
Improved ability to record SAPUI5 applications, so that recording is now supported with all browsers and with greater usability.
The UI is improved, providing better performance, especially when working with large scripts.
Convert TruClient actions to code
You can now convert TruClient actions to code. This enables you to take advantage of fast script development and processing available with TruClient when you create a script. You can then convert selected actions to code, making it easier to add complex logic and customized functions to the script. See Convert TruClient Actions to Code.
