Scroll

This action emulates scrolling a page or tag. It is particularly useful on sites where the full contents does not appear until the page or content tag has been scrolled. Note that the scroll step does not change the position of scroll bars in the browser view.

Most commonly, the Scroll step action is used to scroll an entire document, in which no tag finder should be added to the step. To scroll a particular tag that has its own scroll bar, add a tag finder that selects that tag.

Properties

The Scroll action can be configured using the following properties:

Horizontal Scroll:
Specify the number of pixels to scroll to the right, relative to the current scroll position. Specify a negative number to scroll to the left. The value can be specified in several ways using a Value Selector.
Vertical Scroll:
Specify the number of pixels to scroll down, relative to the current scroll position. Specify a negative number to scroll up. The value can be specified in several ways using a Value Selector.
Options:
The robot's options can be overridden with the step's own options. An option that is marked with an asterisk in the Options Dialog will override the one from the robot's configuration. All other options will be the same as specified for the robot.
