There are 3 types of recording modes in UTF:

  1. Normal Recording mode or contextual recording mode
  2. Low-level recording mode
  3. Analog recording mode

Normal or contextual recording mode: Normal recording mode is the basic or default recording mode that is used in UFT, it takes full advantage of UFT’s test object model. It can recognize the objects regardless of their position on-screen. This is used for most of the automation activities and is the most preferred recording mode.

Low-level recording mode: It can record the objects that are not identified by the normal recording mode of UFT. It records with the help of x,y coordinates of the user's mouse operations. It helps in hashmap testing.

Analog recording mode: This mode records the movement of the mouse and keyboard that a user performs in relation to the screen/application window. This mode helps in drawing pictures, recording a signature and drag and drop operation.
