SYNOPSIS ^

  use X11::GUITest::record qw /:ALL :CONST/;
  
  # Query version of the record extension
  my $VERSION_EXT = QueryVersion;

  print "Record extension version: $VERSION_EXT\n";
  
  # Sets the record context to capture key presses and mouse movements
  SetRecordContext(KeyPress, MotionNotify);

  # Begin record
  EnableRecordContext();

  print "Recording..............\n";
  sleep (5);

  # Stop record
  DisableRecordContext();

  while ($data = GetRecordInfo())
    {
     print "Record: ". $data ->{TxtType} ." ";
     print "X:". $data ->{X} . " Y:". $data ->{Y} if  ($data ->{TxtType} eq "MotionNotify");
     print "Key:". $data ->{Key} if  ($data ->{TxtType} eq "KeyPress");
     print "\n";

    }

FUNCTIONS ^

Parameters enclosed within [] are optional.

SetRecordContext category, type, [category, type..]

Specifies what the context has to record. It is possible to use the constant functions as:

SetRecordContext(KeyPress, KeyRelease, MotionNotify);

It is only possible to use DeliverdEvents and CoreRequests. To use other please choose one of the low level functions like SetDeviceEvents.

Some implemented events/requests are:

    - KeyPress 
    - KeyRelease
    - ButtonPress
    - ButtonRelease
    - MotionNotify
    - X_CreateWindow
    - X_PolyText8
GetRecordInfo

To get one single record information from record queue.

This function will return 0 if the end of the queue is reached. Otherwise it will return a hash with the following values:

    - {"Category"}:     Category of the record (0 for event
                                                1 for request)
                                             
    - {"Type"}:         Type of the record in digits
    - {"TxtType"}:      Type of the record in text
   [- {"X"}             X coordinte]
   [- {"Y"}             Y coordinte]
   [- {"Text"}          Text if it is a X_Polytext8]
   [- {"Key"}           Key if it is a key press or key release event]
   [- {"WinID"}         WindowID]
   [- {"PWinID"}        Parent WindowID]
