Erasing the marking rectangle

If you draw a marking rectangle and then click the session window anywhere outside the boundaries of the marking rectangle, the session window erases the marking rectangle. However, when the macro runtime is playing a macro, a Mouse click action does not erase an existing marking rectangle.

To erase a marking rectangle in a macro you have two choices:
  • Draw a new marking rectangle in a different location .When you draw a new marking rectangle the old one is erased.
  • Use the Code Editor to set the type attribute of the <boxselection> element to DESELECT. For the DESELECT option the macro runtime ignores the row and column coordinates and just erases the existing marking rectangle if there is one.
