AutoBloks captures detailed information about an execution and stores that information in a folder containing a Report file (
.abreport file extension) and any accompanying screenshots. This information can be opened and displayed in the rich Report Viewer in AutoBloks.
The Summary (1) section at the top provides overall information about the Report and the Activities contained within it.
The Activity Calls List (2) along the left side provides a high-level overview of the Activity Calls made during the execution of the Process.
The Detail Pane (3) on the right side of the report will provide more detail for the selected Activity Call, including a summary of the Activity, Input and Output Arguments, and any Screenshots associated with the Activity Call. Since Screenshots are such a vital part of verifying playback accuracy, any step with a Screenshot will have a special Screenshot Icon (4) shown in the Activity Calls List.
A Screenshot is displayed in the Detail Pane using a thumbnail of the image. For larger images, this provides a nice preview of the contents of the Screenshot, but it can be hard to discern details. Right-click a Screenshot and select the Extend to Full Screen command (or simply double-click the Screenshot) to open the Full Screen Screenshot Viewer.
The File Name and Location (1) are displayed in the top bar to specify the image file being viewed.
Click the Options (2) drop-down control to access the following additional commands:
- Copy File Name to Clipboard
- Copies the full path of the image file to the system clipboard
- Copy Image to Clipboard
- Copies the image data to the system clipboard where it can be easily pasted into other systems for documentation or discussion.
Clicking the Exit Full Screen (3) command (or pressing the Esc key on the keyboard) will exit the Full Screen Viewer and return to the standard Report Viewer.
Zoom and Pan
By default, the image will be zoomed to fit the entire image. Using the Zoom Slider (5) you can zoom in or out of the image to see pixel-level detail of the Screenshot. While zoomed, you can click-and-drag with the mouse to pan around the image or use the Pan Controls (4). For convenience, you can always Zoom to Fit or Reset View (6) to 100% zoom using the additional commands.
