How does UFT perform the Click method when using the Web Add In?

I am testing a highly javascript based application on Internet Explorer 8.0 with UFT 11.50. I would like to know how UFT implements the “Click” method under the hood when using the Web Add In. Does UFT send a windows mouse event? Does it fire an event (onclick, onmousedown, onmouseup)? I have been seeing some mixed results with my application.

It can do either, by default UFT replays using DOM events but you can change the replay type to device in which case it queries the HTML element’s location and simulates a mouse click on that location.

The replay mode is controlled by Tools->Opitions->Web->Advanced->RunSettings or in the script by:

Setting.WebPackage("ReplayType") = 2 ''# Changes to device mode
Setting.WebPackage("ReplayType") = 1 ''# Changes to event mode

Note that in event mode UFT doesn’t just send a click, it sends other events that typically are used by applications (such as focus, mousedown and mouseup) unless the registry value ReplayOnlyClick in the WebPackage settings is set to 1.
