eRaUI weekly technical meeting - Thursday 29th September
The eRaUI team met on Thursday 29th September to discuss the progress so far. We saw a demonstration of the means by which key presses can now be captured and played back using the eRaUI interaction playback tool. We also discussed the details of the revisions which have been made to the mechanisms of capture for user interactions with the web interface. Previously all user interaction captures were made relative to the document body, however this causes issues with different browsers and platforms which render elements in different positions. Much of the work this week has involved revising the mechanism of capture to work in a way which is relative to individual DOM elements. This means, among other things, altering the DOM of each document so as to give a unique ID attribute to every element which is to be rendered.
