Editing Captured Data in a Data Grid

Working with the Data in Data Grids
4-21
Use Move column titles to grid or Move top menus to grid to:
Capture and test a title without its column data.
Test the title like any of the other data in the grid.
Edit a title by moving it to the grid, editing it, and moving it back to its position
as a title.
If a verification point captures only column titles, Robot selects the Move column
titles to grid check box. Titles are moved to the grid so that data exists in the grid
for testing. This check box is not available for list boxes, combo list boxes, and
combo boxes.
Editing Captured Data in a Data Grid
After selecting the data to test but before saving the verification point, you can edit
the data to test for the following verification points: Clipboard, Menu, and Object
Data.
You can edit the data in any cell of a data grid. Editing data is useful if you want
to change the baseline for a verification point based on a new specification or
anticipated changes to the application-under-test. By editing data before playback,
you often avoid a verification point failure.
Editing Data for a Clipboard or Object Data Verification Point
To edit the data for a Clipboard or Object Data verification point:
1. Double-click a cell in the data grid. The pointer changes to a text cursor.
2. Edit the data in the cell.
3. To accept the changes, press
ENTER
. To cancel the changes, press
ESC
.
NOTE: To edit the titles in a data grid, select the Move column titles to grid or
Move top menus to grid check box.
