Does oxygen provide record/play feature for window app automation?

I downloaded and installed Oxygen IDE 1.16.0 , and trying my hands with Windows Automation using ‘win’ module. But, unlike the record/play feature for both selenium and appium scripts which Oxygen provides, i can’t find way to use record/play feature for win app automation.
Is there any such feature? Can someone guide through it.

Hi ishudeep,

I just wanted to make sure that you are aware of the documentation page here:

This includes description of the win module in Oxygen IDE

We don’t currently have record/playback for Windows automation, but there is an Object Spy functionality. We’ll add that to our documentation shortly


If you have an urgent need for a windows auomation tool with record/playback, a GUI and an SDK as well, you may want to take a look at freeware tool AutoIT v3 from autoscript.

You may use the recording capability inside Appium desktop the same way you record Oxygen Mobile
See the following page
And simply use a capabilities of Win in them
“app”: “Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App”,
“platformName”: “Windows”,
“deviceName”: “WindowsPC”

Here is an example for Windows calculator that can be executed in Oxygen with commands used in Oxygen
//“app”: “Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App”,
app: “Oxygen IDE”,
platformName: “Windows”
win.assertText("~CalculatorResults", “Display is 8”);

2 things you need:
You must install the winappdriver 1.1 on your computer

Make sure your computer is on Developer mode
