Conditional execution of recorded steps

Post by Christoph » Fri Jul 13, 2012 7:49 am


Is it possible, and if yes, how, to only execute recordes steps depending on a condition in one of the steps? I know I can convert the steps into a single user code and then handle everything there with code. But with this approach I loose the easy recorder interface to add, delete, reorder actions. I think it is easier to understand what'g going on when looking at the steps in the recorder than reading code.

This is the scenario:
- Take elements from the repository and create a recording (or take an actual recording and clean it up)
- In one of the steps I'd like to check a condition and if not met skip the remaining steps in the recording.

Hello Christoph,

You can try to use the Error behavior setting 'Continue with parent' to skip the actual test case if a failure occurs. The test will then continue with the next test case. Unfortunately you can only realize conditions in the UserCode.
