Step Navigator Pane

The Step Navigator is a table view of the API function calls in the script. In addition, the Step Navigator pane enables you to navigate to a selected step in your script.

If your script contains many steps, you can use the search box to search for matching text in the different parts of the steps.

To access View > Steps
Important information
  • You can search within an action or script but not across multiple scripts in a solution.
  • You can move this pane to different areas of the Main User Interface. For details, see How to Modify the VuGen Layout.
  • You can view the script in either action or script scope.

  • Every step that has a snapshot is marked with an icon. When hovering over a step that has an associated thumbnail it is presented as a tooltip.

  • Double clicking a step, takes you to the corresponding location in the script and synchronizes all other panes.
