Control panel is automatically opened when recording starts and provides a quick access to main test case properties. When recording is in progress, its Script
tab immediately updates with recorded actions.
There are two ways to start recording and open Control Panel:
See Control Panel screenshot below for more information.
Move a mouse over highlighted areas on a screenshot below to get a documentation regarding UI elements
Closes control panel and restores main RCPTT IDE window. If recording is in progress, it is automatically stopped. If test case is not saved, prompts for a save.
Saves current test case. If there's no current test case (i.e. Control Panel has been started by Record a Snippet
button), prompts for a test case location.
Used to control recording
Replay current test case
When recording is in progress, these buttons allow to switch between two modes:
Current test script. When recording is in progress, it is automatically appended with newly recorded actions. When recording is stopped, its contents is editable.
Allows to add/remove contexts to current test case.
Allows to add/remove verifications to current test case.
Allows to view/edit a description of a current test case. This tab can be activated while recording in progress, so it might be convenient to put test steps into description section before starting recording and then follow those steps to avoid recoding of unnecessary actions.
Contains a few rarely used options controlling the way in which user actions are being recorded.
Indicates which application this control panel is currently working with.
Indicates that recording is in progress now.
