Excluding Controls from Testing

Testing Controls in the AUT During Pilot Runs
5-55
Specifying Random Entry Data to Use During Testing
The UseIntegerValues, UseFloatValues, and UseStringValues properties in the
Pilot properties group correspond to the Use random entries suboptions in the Edit
Data Entry Style dialog box.
To keep a random data entry type as part of the mix of entry data used to test
a control:
Leave the Value field for the random entry data property set to Yes.
To exclude a random data entry type from the mix of entry data used to test a control:
Double-click the Value field for the random entry data property, and then
click No.
Excluding Controls from Testing
If the AUT contains a print control, a control that is unstable, or a control that could
delete data that you want to keep, you probably want to exclude it from testing.
To exclude a control from testing by an individual Pilot, you can add the UI object
mapped for the control to the Exclude tab. If the UI object that you add to the
Exclude tab has been added as a component to an interaction object to which the
Pilot has access, then you must also exclude the accessible UI object components
from testing.
To exclude just the component from testing:
1. In the application map, click the interaction object that contains the component.
2. In the Interaction Object view, click the component name, and then click
Make Unavailable on the Interaction Object toolbar.
To exclude the interaction object that contains the component from testing:
1. In the application map, right-click the interaction object that contains
the component.
2. If Use During Testing on the shortcut menu is checked, click the command. If
the command is not checked, click outside the shortcut menu to close it.
If a project contains a UI script or best script that touches a control you have
excluded from testing, and you run the script while the exclusion is in effect, the run
will fail. We recommend that you do not run scripts such as these as long as the
control is excluded from testing.
