Acknowledging the Results of Verification Point Playback
By selecting the Acknowledge results check box, you can have Robot display a
results message box each time it plays back a verification point.
For example, in the following figure, the message box indicates that the verification
point named Object Properties failed during playback. You must click OK before
playback continues. During the test development phase, this lets you interactively
view the playback results of each verification point.
During the regression testing phase, you usually play back scripts in unattended
mode. By clearing the Acknowledge results check box, you can prevent Robot
from displaying this message box. After the script plays back, you can view the
results of all verification points in the log.
To set this option:
1. Open the GUI Playback Options dialog box. (See Setting GUI Playback Options
on page 9-4.)
2. In the Playback tab, do one of the following:
Select Acknowledge results to have Robot display a pass/fail result message
box for each verification point. You must click OK before playback
continues.
Clear Acknowledge results so that Robot does not interactively display
pass/fail results.
3. Click OK or change other options.
Setting Log Options for Playback
A log is a file that contains the record of events that occur while a script is playing
back. A log includes the results of the script and of all verification points. You view
logs in TestManager. (For more information, see the TestManager Help.)
To set the log options:
1. Open the GUI Playback Options dialog box. (See Setting GUI Playback Options
on page 9-4.)
2. Click the Log tab.
Click OK to continue playback.
