The click recordable action is a click on a single element, such as an input field, a title label, a hyperlink, a tab, etc. This is the most generic recordable click action. Clicks on buttons and menus and clicks for data set navigation have their own actions (clickButton, navigateMenu, clickRow).


The following target control properties are in scope: Reference name, Occurence rank, Source frame, Context reference name, Context occurrence rank.

In addition, the following properties specific to this action are also in scope:




Element type


The type of the control element. For an input control, it is the exact input type, but for other controls it can be anything available in the list.

Record row index


If encountered in a control controlled by a data source row, this field contains the row index of that row. For search fields, the rowIndex is not present, and when the “empty” row is displayed (i.e. no rows in data set), the value is -1.

Click type


This field determines if the click is a regular (single) click, or a doubleclick.

Control type


The exact control name as it is defined in Web Designer.

Within custom control


This property is specifically set for controls that exist in controls that are not defined within Web Designer itself. For example: dialog buttons, any clickable control in a HTMLControl, etc.
