Simulate Hitting Carriage Return in Truclient

Hi folks...


This is probably really simple solution, but unfortuantely I cant figure it out!

I'm recording in Truclient Fifrefox, and the UI I want to test has a search bar where we input a part number and hit return. This obviously works in normal browser but within the recording, the hitting 'Return' button isnt captured.

I've tried turning up the script level, adding  generaic functions from Toolbox, but cant get it to simulate this.

Have any of ye seen this in the past or know how to amend this in Truclient??

If there was a 'Search' button on the UI, there'd be no problem 🙂

Re: Simulate Hitting Carriage Return in Truclient



1. Add a Generic Object Action step from the toolbox.

2. Choose the relevant UI object. 

3. Change the action in the step from Click to Press Key (under the Step section of the step)

4.  Now expand the Arguments section and select Enter in the Key Name field.


Hope it helps
