Once you have recorded a script with EveryStep Scripting Tool Desktop, you may wish to go back and add or edit specific actions within the script.
Editing a Script That You Have Previously Saved to Your Desktop
You can open the EveryStep Scripting Tool Desktop and select the Load from Local Machine option to load an existing device.
Editing From within a Dotcom-Monitor Account
You can edit a script by opening up EveryStep Scripting Tool Desktop and clicking the Download from Dotcom-Monitor button.
How to Start Editing
Once the script has been loaded to EveryStep Scripting Tool Desktop, there are 4 ways to edit a script:
1. To add additional steps to the end of a script, simply press the record button, and select the option to continue adding steps.
2. To add new lines in the middle of a script using the wizard, you can right-click the script within the editing pane (at the bottom of the screen) where you want to add a new line. The context menu with the options to add new steps will appear:
- Network Filter
- Confirm Handler
- Authentication Handler
- Certificate Handler
- Network Response Modifier
- Delay in Script
- Network URL Analyzer
- Network Body Analyzer
- Network Throttling
3. To edit variables such as keywords, and field values like usernames and passwords, left-click an underlined field label to edit the value.
4. For more advanced editing (for advanced users only) you can enable the Allow to edit script manually feature in the Advanced Settings menu. However, this will allow you to change the text of any line in the script and add your custom C# code. So if you do not edit a line properly the script will break.
To enable manual editing mode, click the wrench icon in the upper right hand corner of the app and go to Advanced Settings > Miscellaneous > Allow to edit script manually. See also: Sample C# Code Editing in a Script, EveryStep Scripting Tool Object Model: classes, methods, properties, etc..
