Session Navigation

Use the Session Browser to view the current session and all the pages and windows it contains in a hierarchical display.

To open the Session Browser, click View > Session Browser from the menu bar.

When an entity is selected from the Session Browser tree, its properties and values are displayed in the Entity Editor.

The fields displayed in the Entity Editor are dependent on whether the Page or Window entity type is selected from the Session Browser tree.

The image below shows the property information for a page selected from the Session Browser tree. Notice how the page data is grouped by category: Standard, Display, and Basic. Each category can be expanded/collapsed to display or hide the properties contained in it.

The filter is added to the search field at the top of the browser. If you add more than one filter type, it will be added to the search field, with the word AND, as shown below. In this example, the PNG format and the HyperView client were both added as filters.
