I'd like to do make a re-usable test case where a test step in the test case is configurable. So it does this:
1. Test Step A (e.g. select a tree node)
2. Configurable Test Step B (e.g. select context menu item)
3. Test Step C (e.g. select a sub-tree node)
I'd like to loop over this test case supplying data which affects steps A and C (so use a data set), but also I want to make Test Step B configurable, for example I re-use this test case supplying in test data and Step B is configured to click the context menu item "New", I re-use the test-case somewhere else, but this time Step B is configured to execute a key accelerator Ctrl+N.
Is there any easy way to do this?
I got it working by doing this:
After Step A, throw an error (i.e check string value A), setting up a retry handler which performs Step B, setting the correct value for string value A, and then re-enters the failing test step which now succeeds on string value check, original test case performs Step C. Success.
This seems really clunky. Is there are better way to this?
