Editing Web UI tests

With the test editor, you can view and customize a Web UI test.

The test editor displays the test scripts. The edited test displays the list of actions and UI elements recorded during the recording phase. Actions are represented in natural language, which allows you to modify the test manually.

There are two main areas in the test editor window. The area on the left, Test Contents, displays the chronological sequence of events in the test. The area on the right, Test Element Details, displays details about the currently selected action in the test script. In this area you can select a graphic object, an action related to the object, and its location. You can also define a time out and user’s think time to execute your test.

When actions are selected in the Test Contents list, the Mobile and Web UI Data view is automatically synchronized to display the screen captures of the user interface of the app during the recording. You can use the Mobile and Web UI Data view to select user interface (UI) elements and add some verification points, or variables and modify steps in the test with simplified scripts. Or you can create or modify a set of steps manually directly in the test script.

You can add datapools, test variables, or verification points in your script.
