Click Relative

Click Relative activity allows you to click any point in an application by reference to specified X and Y coordinates. This activity moves the focus to the place where click is done.

The parameter Offset From allows you to choose the reference point of the control - horizontal and vertical offset will be calculated from that point. Positive numbers increase offset value to the right (X) and to the bottom (Y) while negative numbers to the left (X) and to the top (Y). The offset is measured in pixels.

Fill in the application custom internal name. Drop the control on the activity. Choose click type (generic click relative, generic double click relative, generic right click relative). Choose the reference point of the control from the dropdown (top right, top left, bottom right, bottom feft, center, left edge center, right edge center, bottom edge center, top edge center). Declare the offset values (X offset, Y offset).

To successfully use Click Relative activity be sure your application is on top of your screen (its advised to use Window Activity before using Click Relative). Remember that essential to success is the same position of application on screen (and control's edges as well) during building the scenario and in production environment. Check the screen resolution - it has to be the same during building the scenario and in production environment.
