Position Window

Custom Activity


This activity makes it easier to position and size applications on a screen.

This custom activity will work under the scope of an Attach Window, Attach Browser, or by providing an application "window" as an argument.

To move a "window" to a desired spot on the screen, a user can select the region they want the window to move to in a pop-up dialog (shown as a grid representing segmented portions of the primary screen)

This activity aids in maximizing screen real-estate, and helps with an attended automation where a user needs to see information or steps for one or more applications during the automation.



Being able to quickly position items on the screen is beneficial for attended automation purposes, where a user needs to see information on the screen (e.g., in a PDF, or on a Webpage) in order to make a decision

The capability also aids in demonstration purposes.
