Creating row verification points

You can create a row verification point to test the properties of a certain row in your application. The row is a part of a ECL screen. When you record the verification point, a baseline of the row is created. Every time you play back the script, the row is compared to check if any changes have occurred. This helps in identifying any mismatch in row.

Before you begin

To capture row verification points while recording the scripts for testing VT terminal-based applications, you must set the flag rational.test.ft.fte.playback.vt_row_vp = true in the file available at <product installation directory>\FunctionalTester\bin location. By default, this flag is set to "false".


  1. Log in and interact with the host while creating a host connection script. For more information on creating a host connection script, see the related topics.
  2. When you are in the window in which you want to perform a test on an individual row, click the Verification Point and Action Wizard icon in the Recording monitor window.
  3. On the Select an Object page of the wizard, click Selection Method > Drag Hand Selection. Use the drag hand with the corresponding Object Finder button to set a verification point on a single row.
    Note: You can also use the Test Object Browser to capture verification points.
    Note: The row verification is valid only for virtual terminals and not for TN3270 and TN5250 terminals.
  4. After you verify that you have selected the correct row, click Next. You can set a data verification point on the row value or set one or more of the following property verification points: char, class, length, rowEnd, rowStart, screenCols, screenRows, startRow, updatedLength.
