This command allows to record a sequence of commands and to replay the recorded sequence at will.
Starts recording a sequence of commands.
Stops recording the sequence of commands.
If the recording of a sequence of commands has been started, stops this recording. Otherwise, starts recording a sequence of commands.
Cancels the recording of a sequence of commands.
Displays a dialog box containing last recorded macro in XML form. Very handy to paste it in an XXE configuration file (see XMLmind XML Editor - Configuration and Deployment).
Returns a string containing last recorded macro in XML form. This option is useful to write higher-level commands and actions.
Replays recorded sequence of commands.
At most 100 commands can be recorded. Typing contiguous characters, no matter how many, counts as a single command (insertString).
Attempting to record the following commands will automatically cause macro recording to be canceled:
any command which has been designed to be bound to a mouse click (e.g. selectAt),
any command which fails (example: searching a string and this string is not found),
any command which cannot be executed given current editing context (most obvious example: "
recordMacro replay"; other example: pasting some text to a place where the schema forbids to do so).
Recording interactive command such as "insert after" works as expected: it is the command along with the element interactively chosen by the user which is recorded, and not the interactive invocation of "
insert after" (i.e. which displays a dialog box).
Recording command execute is fully supported and works as expected: it is the command executed by
execute which is recorded, and not
recordMacro start recordMacro stop recordMacro replay
