You can add API calls to your project by recording host interactions, or by manually inserting the API calls.
Immediately after connecting to the host, recording automatically starts — all screens and interactions with the host are recorded and equivalent API calls are added to your project. (You can temporarily pause recording with a toolbar button.)
When you interact with the host, the following fundamental bridge API calls are recorded:
|This API call is recorded
|connectBridge||Connect to the host|
|setFieldValue||Input data into the host application|
|sendKeys||Press an AID key, navigating to a new screen|
|disconnect||Disconnect from the host|
The designer records every screen, as well as the actions needed to access each one. It also records every modified field by name. However, it does not record the actions needed to access each modified field.
Changes to a screen (for example, a modified field value) will not be recorded until an AID key is sent.
