Top right corner of the recording wizard page contains the buttons that controls the recording flow. Press Record button to start. It will turn into Stop button, which is used to interrupt. Each time you start recording, the application is restarted. If you wish to interrupt the recording temporarily simply use Pause button. None of your actions will be captured until you press Resume button.
This is useful when you record Robotium test that will have more than one test method. You can use Pause button to return to the main activity of your application and Resume to start back the recording in a new test method. See more in the Test command view.
Pausing is also handy if you happened to press something you didn't mean to. For example you click on an item that takes you to a new activity, but you didn't want to do that. Pause the recording, navigate back to the previous activity and delete the commands from the list. Deleting commands is explained later on.
If you are recording from sources, you can select a Run Configuration that will be used to launch your application. You can set it in the Configuration box. To create and manage the configurations, do the following:
- Right click on your project in the Package Explorer
- Run As - > Run Configurations...
