Clip Editor Icon View

The Clip Editor icon view features icons for non-HTTP clip elements in addition to the icon updates for HTTP types already cited. In Icon view, the icon face identifies each captured message or action by its type (e.g. for HTTP messages types include HTML, POST, GIF, JPG, etc.).

Dynamic scrolling in the Clip Editor does not require the user to get each new chunk to get to the last chunk, as it shows the full length of the resources section, and the user can scroll to the desired location. Pausing the scroll in the Clip Editor will automatically fill in the resources in that chunk.

Icon view large icons for delays, scripts, and checkpoints are shown on the right. Each item has scope. the time of delays can be entered on the face of Delay icons.

As within the Recording Editor, icon color in the Clip Editor corresponds to Content-Type.

In Icon view the display of information about a given clip element has been improved by color correspondence, and directional arrows (HTTP GET vs. POST/PUT). Large icons now default to display the HTTP method in the center of the icon (unless the Content Badges > Target Logo option is selected; see Using Content Badges), as well as The HTTP Content-Type is displayed in the center of the message icon on Icon view. For any given clip element, its name is displayed beneath the icon.
