Stopping a Script
Stopping a script is done whenever you want to either end the playback of a script, or halt the progress of a script that is currently paused before it has been completed. Note: To stop a script that is currently being recorded, refer to the instructions in the Recording a Script topic.
To stop a script:
- With a script either being played back or paused, click the Stop button in the script controls pane at left.
- Note the following resulting implications:
- While playing: Stops the script at a point in time and enables the Resume button to continue playing until finished.
- While paused: Stops the script and returns it to its first event so that it can be played back again from the beginning.
When a script has been paused at an event step prior to completion of being played to its end, the Stop button appears between the Resume and Step forward buttons:
