Simulate mouse hover

Hi there guys - long time user, first time caller… :smiley:

I’ve got a scenario where I’d like to mouse hover over an element for a second or so, then ‘un hover’.

I understand that the resulting data may not be accessible via Data Miner, but it triggers an event that’s useful elsewhere. In this case it’s a list / table, and one of these elements exists in each table row.

I’ve had a look at the docs but can’t find anything. Anyone know if this is possible?


Hi Rob,

Thanks for posting!

Unfortunately, Data Miner does not have a mouse over feature at the moment. However, you can try it see if clicking triggers the event as well. Page clicks can be founder under the Page tab in Recipe Creator. You do need a paid plan in order to add Actions to a recipe. Any plan will work: Pricing | Data Miner

In addition, you can look in the HTML of the page to see if the event is just superficial. It’s possible that the data is still present in the HTML without the need of the mouse over.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
