New EVENT recording mode

Post by Tom, Tech Support » Fri Nov 01, 2013 1:00 pm

EVENT is a new experimental command to automate web controls that the classic TAG command can not automate:

- Drag & Drop
- Sliders
- Tricky date controls (date pickers)
- Ajax drop&down boxes

To test the EVENT recording, please use iMacros for Firefox: Open the iMacros add-on, go to the REC(ord) tab, click the "Record Options" button and select Experimental EVENT recording mode.

Please report any issue or suggestion here in the user forum. We are especially interested to hear about websites that you can not automate successfully despite using the new EVENT(s) command.
