The Simulate Click/Event action simulates a customer clicking one or more element selectors. The action also appends included CSS styles in the
<head> of the page.
This action is useful when you toggle interactive content open or closed.
Relative Element Selector
Select the type of event simulated by the action:
- Mouse Up
- Mouse Down
- Key Up
- Key Down
This setting controls how frequently the action fires per customer:
- Every page
- Once per session
- Once, ever
- Once every 'X' days
Prevent Default Browser Behavior
When set to YES, this setting prevents the browser from following links and other default behavior when the event fires.
Monetate appends anything you add in the CSS editor to a stylesheet in the
<head> portion of your site within a
<style> block. These styles are available on this page for use with any page element.
Select All Elements
The Select multiple elements, if matched? toggle allows you to apply the action to the first occurrence of the relative element selector or all occurrences of it, if multiple exist.
Select NO to apply the action to the first occurrence. Select YES to apply the action to all occurrences.
Re-Check for Elements
Use the Re-check for Elements toggle to enable or disable polling. If you enable polling, Monetate continues to check for the selected element even if it does not initially appear on the page. This option is good if you have certain elements that don't fire right when the page loads.
If you disable polling, Monetate only checks for the element once when the page loads.
Days Until Expiration
Only use this input if you selected Once every 'X' days from Display Frequency. This option sets the number of days until the lightbox expires and accepts any numeric value.
