Step forward in a script when you want to advance a stopped (or paused) script to the next event step. Click Step forward in the left controls pane of the Scripts panel.

  1. Click Step forward in the left pane of the Scripts panel when a previously-recorded script is loaded and either paused or stopped at a particular event step (as noted by the row with the shaded background in the event table at right).

    Clicking the Step Forward button on the Scripts panel with a loaded, paused script displayed in the Event table

    The script advances forward to the next event, and the event row is shaded with a blue background indicating the current step in play. Note that if the script is paused, the Resume button is replaced with a Pause button instead of a Stop button after clicking Step Forward. Additionally, note that the change to the rendered page above the DevTools displays the next event. For example, navigating from the Index page to the Cart page of the Gefalscht CompuTech site.

  2. Click Resume (or Play), and the script will begin to play from the advance to shaded event.
