Effective Timeout is the cumulative amount of time spent searching for the element based on its nesting hierarchy.
Search Timeout is the search time just at that node level.

So if you have an element such as Form.Window.Control then the SearchTimeout might be 30s for Form, 30s for Window and 30s for Control, but the EffectiveTimeout for Control is Form + Window + Control == 90s.

Hi,

App folder represents top-level repository container, which usually also represents main application window, hence "app folder" name. It's nicely described here:

If you mean “application folder”, like the folder where your application is located, then no, it’s not the dame thing. The App folder in repository is just container, representing root level of tested application GUI.

Yes, you can do the same actions in code modules as in recording modules and much more! In code modules, you can code almost anything you want, using C# or VB .Net code.
