New functionality in the web-based Ozlab2016-09-02
2016-09-02 the latest release of our web-based Ozlab was launched. In the new release there is functionality that will facilitate the use of Ozlab on mobile devices.
The TP-webpage can catch swipe and touch and transfer this movement to the Ozlab-server, which represent this in a particular way on the TL-webpage.
Swipe: if the test person (TP) uses a swipe-movement during a session (swipes with the finger across the screen) this is symbolised with several arrows in the direction of the swipe on the TL-monitor (the Wizard) (see figure 1). There is also the potential to connect certain behaviours to the swipe-movement, for example so that the Ozlab-system automatically changes the scene when TP swipes to the left.
Figure 1. How Swipe works in the new web-based Ozlab.
Touch: when TP touches a touch-screen (a screen on a mobile device), this is symbolised with coloured circles on the TL-monitor. Also, each click that TP makes becomes a circle on the live scene on the TL-monitor. If TP keeps his/her finger pressed down, a “long” click, a counter appears inside the coloured circle that keeps track of how long the finger has been pressed down (see figure 2).

At the time of writing, a re-designed user interface for the TL is being implemented. The new TL-user interface will facilitate access to the objects’ properties and the objects’ behaviours when the TL is in Shell builder-mode. See earlier article, published 2015-11-09 for more information about the new interface.
