Selecting a Verification Method
When you create certain verification points, you can select a verification method.
The verification method specifies how Robot compares the baseline data captured
while recording with the data captured during playback.
The verification methods are:
Case-Sensitive Verifies that the text captured during recording exactly matches
the captured text during playback. For example, if you capture Inches during
recording, the test fails during playback if the captured text is inches or if the text
contains any other characters.
Case-Insensitive Verifies that the text captured during recording matches the
captured text during playback in content but not necessarily in case. For example, if
you capture Inches during recording, the test passes during playback if the captured
text is inches. If the text contains any other characters, the test fails.
Find Sub String Case-Sensitive Verifies that the text captured during recording
exactly matches a subset of the captured text during playback. For example, if you
capture Inches during recording, the test passes during playback if the captured text
is Inches or Feet, because Inches exists within the text. The test fails if the captured text
contains inches, because the case is different.
Find Sub String Case-Insensitive Verifies that the text captured during recording
matches a subset of the captured text during playback in content but not necessarily
in case. For example, if you capture Inches during recording, the test passes during
playback if the captured text is Inches or Feet, because Inches exists within the text.
The test also passes if the captured text contains inches, because the case does not
have to match.
Numeric Equivalence Verifies that the values of the data captured during
recording exactly match the values captured during playback. For example, if you
select 24.25 during recording, the test passes during playback only if the captured
value is 24.25.
