Customizing a script template

HCL OneTest™ UI uses its default script templates to format and provide basic information when you create a script. You can customize the information and format by customizing the script templates.

About this task

To customize a script template, use the HCL OneTest UI Script Templates Property Page. In HCL OneTest UI, Eclipse Integration, you can also use the Java™ editor, which provides simple formatting of the template and help with the Java syntax. In HCL OneTest UI, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET Integration, you can use the Code editor.

Procedure

  1. Right-click a functional test project in the Projects view, click Properties > HCL OneTest UI Script Templates from the pop-up menu. The HCL OneTest UI Script Templates Property page is displayed.
  2. In the Select template type list, click the script template to customize.
  3. Edit the script template from the Functional Test Script Templates Property page:
    1. Edit the script template using the appropriate placeholder. For information about placeholders, see Customizing Script Templates related topic.
    2. Optionally, click Apply to save your edits as you work or when you finish changes to one script template.
    3. Click OK to save all edits to all script templates.
    4. If you use ClearCase®, you must check out the script template(s) by checking out the Functional Test project. When you click Apply or OK, the ClearCase Check Out dialog box opens to check out the file before you save it. In the Check Out dialog box, click Finish to check out the script template. Click Apply to save your edits as you work or when you finish changes to one script template or click OK to save all edits to all script templates.

    You can also edit a script template with the Java editor in HCL OneTest UI, Eclipse Integration or the Code Editor in HCL OneTest UI, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET Integration. Click Open current template in Editor to open the template in the appropriate editor.

    Tip: To omit associated punctuation for any null properties, enclose the placeholder in a pair of carets (^). For example:
    ^%map:contextComment%^
