How to create a smart folder in c # code ?

Post by Cyril » Wed Nov 03, 2021 10:41 am

Hello

I would like to create smart folders or case tests by writing C # code.
Without using the usual creation buttons.
is it possible ?

Thank you

Bye

Hi Cyril,

Welcome to the forum! This may be possible. I would double check the API documentation to confirm, though. I've never done this myself via code before. But maybe someone else in the forum has. I'd wait to see if anyone else has any experience that may be able to offer pointers.

Hi,

If I'm not mistaken, this has been discussed before. And I'm quite sure that there is no public API for this. What's the use case? I mean do you really think it would be easier and faster (not to mention bug-proof) to code the test structure, instead of creating it in Studio? I really doubt that ;)
