User interface elements are described below:

UI Element
Save snapshots
Saves a snapshot of the Citrix client window for each script step, when relevant. We recommend that you enable this option to provide you with a better understanding of the recorded actions. Saving snapshots, however, uses more disk space and slows down the recording session.
Window name
In some applications, the active window name changes while you are recording. If you try to replay the script as is, the Vuser uses the original window name and the replay may fail. You can specify a naming convention for the windows in which VuGen uses a common prefix or common suffix to identify the windows as follows:
  • Use new window name as is. Set the window name as it appears in the window title. (default)

  • Use common prefix for new window names. Use the common string from the beginning of the window titles as a window name.

  • Use common suffix for new window names. Use the common string from the end of the window titles as a name.

Alternatively, you can modify the window names in the actual script after recording. In the Script view, locate the window name, and replace the beginning or end of the window name with the "*" wildcard notation.

Example: ctrx_sync_on_window ("My Application*", ACTIVATE, ...CTRX_LAST);
