Recording Properties > Serialization Options - Recording Options

Enables you to control how objects are serialized. Serialization is often relevant to displaying objects in an ASCII representation in order to parameterize their values.

User interface elements are described below:

UI Element
Description
Unfold Serialized Objects
Expands serialized objects in ASCII representation and allows you to view the ASCII values of the objects in order to perform parameterization.
  • Limit Object Size (bytes). Limits serializable objects to the specified value. Objects whose size exceeds this value, will not be given ASCII representation in the script.

    Default value: 3072 bytes.
  • Ignore Serialized Objects. Lists the serialized objects not to be unfolded when encountered in the recorded script. Separate objects with commas.

    Syntax: java.lang.Object class format, delimiter = ","
  • Serialization Delimiter. Indicates the delimiter separating the elements in the ASCII representation of objects. VuGen will only parameterize strings contained within these delimiters. The default delimiter is `#'.

  • Unfold Arrays. Expands array elements of serialized objects in ASCII representation. If you disable this option and an object contains an array, the object will not be expanded.

    Default value: enabled—all deserialized objects are totally unfolded.

  • Limit Array Entries. Instructs the recorder not to open arrays with more than the specified number of elements.

    Default value: 200.
