Lesson 4 Creating Checkpoints
27
You can add most checkpoints to your test either while recording or
afterward. The following sections explain how to create some of the
checkpoints described above on the test you created in "Recording Tests" on
page 9.
Note: When QuickTest creates a checkpoint, it assigns a name based on
information inside the checkpoint--the checked value, for example. The
checkpoint name remains unchanged, even if you subsequently modify the
information on which it was based. Keep this in mind when looking for
checkpoints displayed in the Keyword View. However, note that QuickTest
may shorten the name displayed in the Keyword View.
For more information on how to create checkpoints, refer to the QuickTest
Professional User's Guide
.
