Important information
This node is available only for specific protocols. For a complete list of protocols and their associated nodes, see Protocol Compatibility Table.

User interface elements are described below:

UI Element
Generate automatic synchronization commands
Automatically generates a number of TE-synchronization functions, and insert them into the script while you record.
  • Cursor. Generate a TE_wait_cursor function before each TE_type function.

  • Prompt. Generate a TE_wait_text function before each TE_type function (where appropriate).

  • X-System. Generate a TE_wait_sync function each time a new screen is displayed while recording.

Note: VuGen generates meaningful TE_wait_text functions when recording VT type terminals only. Do not use automatic TE_wait_text function generation when recording block-mode (IBM) terminals.

Generate automatic X-System transaction
Records the time that the system was in the X SYSTEM mode during a scenario run. This is accomplished by inserting a TE_wait_sync_transaction function after each TE_wait_sync function. Each TE_wait_sync_transaction function creates a transaction with the name default. Each TE_wait_sync_transaction function records the time that the system spent in the previous X SYSTEM state.
Generate screen header comments

Generates screen header comments while recording a Vuser script, and inserts the comments into the script. A generated comment contains the text that appears on the first line of the terminal emulator window.

Note: You can generate comments automatically only when using block-mode terminal emulators such as the IBM 5250.

Keyboard record timeout
When you type text into a terminal emulator while recording, VuGen monitors the text input. After each keystroke, VuGen waits up to a specified amount of time for the next key stroke. If there is no subsequent keystroke within the specified time, VuGen assumes that the command is complete.
