Resume script playback whenever you want to "pick up where you left off" on a page under test in which a script has been previously played, then paused prior to finishing.

  • With either a script that has been played, then paused, or played, then stopped, click Resume on the left controls pane of the Scripts panel.

    Clicking the Resume button on the Scripts panel

    The following results occur based on the state of the script prior to resuming:

    • When previously paused: The script continues to play from the point where it had been paused until its last event is completed.

    • When previously stopped: The script starts playing from the first recorded event.

      As noted above, depending on the state of the script, the location of the Resume button (and the other buttons in proximity to it) differs (as in the paused state example shown below):
