Comparison between WINCLICK and the other CLICK commands

What is the difference between DS CMD=CLICK and the other CLICK commands?

(1) The DS CMD=CLICK commands operates on the visible part of the web page only, just a like human would do with a mouse. Thus DS CMD=CLICK X=1 Y= 400 will always click on the specific part of the browser window. If the web page is scrolled, the click hits another part of the web page.

(2) The HTML based CLICK commands operates on the complete browser web page (HTML). So CLICK X=1 Y= 980 will always click on the specific HTML element at this position of the page regardless whether the element is currently visible in the browser window or not. So whether or not the web page is scrolled, a specific X/Y combination always hits the same part of the web page.

(3) HTML based clicks can be used to position a page correctly for DS CMD=CLICK and other DS commands!
