Subfile settings dialog
The Subfile component settings consist of four tabs, Action, Header, Data, and Marker. Each tab is used to define the criteria for recognizing a particular element of the subfile. Icons on each tab indicate the following states:
  • Recognized: This state means the element of the subfile is recognized on the selected screen. If the Matches option is selected, the recognized element is highlighted. To change the highlighting color, use the Pattern matches setting in the Screen capture highlighting colors section of the ZIETrans preferences. For more information, see Using ZIETrans preferences.
  • Unrecognized: This state means the element of the subfile is not recognized. You must adjust the screen region or recognition criteria to tune the settings until recognized.
  • Unknown: This state indicates that the recognition of this element depends on another element that is not yet recognized. Tune the unrecognized settings on the other tabs first, then come back to this tab.
When all four tabs display recognized indicators, click OK. You can see the recognized result in the widget preview.

Each recognition tab is described below.
