Class ClickStream
Object
dw.web.ClickStream
Represents the click stream in the session. A maximum number of 50 clicks is recorded per session. After the maximum is reached, each time the customer clicks on a new link, the oldest click stream entry is purged. The ClickStream always remembers the first click.

The click stream is consulted when the GetLastVisitedProducts pipelet is called to retrieve the products that the customer has recently visited.

Properties
clicks  :  List  (Read Only)
A collection with all clicks. The first entry is the oldest entry. The last entry is the latest entry. The method returns a copy of the click stream, which makes it safe to work with the click stream, while it might be modified.
enabled  :  boolean  (Read Only)
Identifies if the clickstream recording is enabled or not. It is considered enabled if either:
  • the method Session.isTrackingAllowed() returns true
  • or if the above method returns false but the preference 'ClickstreamHonorDNT' is set to false.
When clickstream tracking is not enabled the getFirst method still operates as expected but the rest of the clicks are not collected.
first  :  ClickStreamEntry  (Read Only)
The first click within this session. This first click is stored independent of whether entries are purged.
last  :  ClickStreamEntry  (Read Only)
The last recorded click stream, which is also typically the current click. In where rare cases (e.g. RedirectURL pipeline) this is not the current click, but instead the last recorded click.
partial  :  boolean  (Read Only)
Identifies if this is only a partial click stream. If the maximum number of clicks (50) is recorded, the oldest entry is automatically purged with each additional click. In this case, this flag indicates that the click stream is only partial.
