Recorder Settings


Nowadays many web sites use counters and web statistics tracking systems that generate statistics about what happens on the site. For example, they can track site visitors, monitor what type of links are used and what files are downloaded from the site. However, you may need not to use such services during your tests. WAPT Pro allows you to specify the list of URLs that will be ignored during the recording process.

Add mask..: Click this button and specify an URL that should be ignored during recording. If you enter some URL string, Recorder will ignore all URLs beginning from that string. You can also use wildcards (* and ?) to define the whole domain of URLs that should be ignored.

Wildcard character ? matches any single character, and * matches any number of characters. You can enter wildcards in any place of URL.

Remove: Removes a selected URL from the list.

Recorder Proxy


IP: You can specify an IP for Recorder proxy. Select the necessary value in the combo-box where you can see all IPs available on your system.

Port: It is the default port number used by Recorder proxy.

Use browser proxy settings: Depending on this option, WAPT Pro Recorder proxy can take the current proxy settings of the browser that was selected for recording and use them. By default this option is turned on, and Recorder proxy uses the proxy configuration of selected browser.

If the Use browser proxy settings option is turned off, Recorder will connect to the tested web server using a direct connection (without using a proxy server).

Other Recording Options


Break connection, if server does not respond in _ seconds: If the time of waiting for server response exceeds this value during recording, then connection will be broken.

Maximum recorded response length: Using this option you can limit the length of recorded server responses. The specified value defines the maximum length of any response received from the server during recording (without images). If the length of some response exceeds this value, the end of that response is cut off.

Besides, if you change the value in this field and click "Save" on the toolbar, then this value will be applied to already recorded responses. They will be cut off if their length exceeds the specified value. So, this option is applied during recording + during saving the recorded profiles.

Enable recorder log: Check this option to save a log for Recorder. Log file will be saved to "c:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Softlogica\WAPT" folder ("UserName" means a user under which WAPT Pro is currently running).
