I have a Test Case having a few test steps(including other test cases), which are associated with specific graphics components, such as Checkbox/ Text box etc.

Now i wish to reuse this Test case in another scenario, but involving a new checkbox.
However, it is not possible ( as far as my knowledge permits me) since the new checkbox cant be associated with the atomic test cases ( they are binded with the old components)

Is there any way i can configure component names by passing parameters?

Hi,

This is indeed possible. The documentation for component names has a section on the component names view and on propagating component names.

HTH,
Alex

Hello,
Passing component names as parameters (dataset) would also be rather convenient.
As an examlpe - common keywords for filling or verifying content where some standard operation will be performed
per each passed parameter instead of specifying as many times as amount of components to proccess.

Hi,

That's something we've talked about a few times, but the consensus has always been that the complexity of the Test Case (both in terms of creation, and in terms of reading / understanding / analysing results) would suffer greatly - each dataset could get its actual parameters or components from other datasets, which in turn may link to other datasets etc. So adding a Test Case once for each component is the way to address multiple components.

Best regards,
Alex
