Defines functions transform.web

Documented in transform.web

#' transform.web, helper function
#'
#' Function gets called by \code{link{plot_brownie}} to calculate data points to plot on screenshot.
#'
#' Extracts data for specified subjects, URL and event. If type euqals "motion" than only data for the
#' Event MouseMotion is used (for type equals "click" only Event MouseButtonPressed is used).
#' The movement data is computed by the formulars:
#' \itemize{
#'  \item{
#'  X = H.ScrollPosition + X.Position
#'  }
#'  \item{
#'  X = H.ScrollPosition + X.Position
#'  }
#' }
#'
#' @param data a list of class web
#' @param url a character
#' @param type a character, "motion" or "click"
#' @param subject a integer vector including the subjects which should be considered for calculation
#' @return dataframe
