The Hover activity simulates hovering over a user interface element.

The simplest example of using the activity is selecting an element from a drop-down list. Moreover, the Hover activity allows working with complex interfaces with animated and pop-up elements.

Activity settings

Activity settings are configured automatically when recording a process or a particular activity.

To set the activity in the recording mode, hover the cursor over the interface element and call the radial menu by pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Q combination, which is set by default. You can change this combination in the designer settings.

After that, click the 72 icon.

After saving the process, the Hover activity will be added to the process diagram.

You can change the configured settings if you need. To open the settings window, click on the activity on the process diagram.

Parameters Tab

The Parameters tab displays the basic activity parameters, target parameters, and control parameters.


Basic parameters:

  • Name. The activity name on the process diagram. Its name is set by default when adding the activity. You can change the name in this field;
  • Mouse cursor mode. Select the mode the cursor will move between the elements: Without animation or With animation. After selecting the first one, the cursor will move at a standard speed. When animated, it moves between elements without a pause.
