Filter Dialog Box (Run Results Viewer)

This dialog box enables you to filter the results tree to display only those nodes that match the conditions that you specify.

To access

Select View > Filters or click the Filter button  .

Important information
  • When you apply a filter, a filter icon is displayed on the status bar, and (Filtered) is appended to the Search box title bar. These visual changes indicate that the run results tree is currently displaying only those nodes that match your filter criteria.

  • (UFT GUI tests only) You can use Reporter.Filter statements in the Editor to disable or enable the saving of selected steps, or to save only steps with Failed or Warning status. For more details on saving run session information, see the Unified Functional Testing User Guide or the Reporter.Filter method in the UFT Object Model Reference for GUI Testing.

    The Reporter.Filter statement differs from the Filters dialog box described above. The Reporter.Filter statement determines which steps are saved in the Run Results, while the Filter dialog box determines which steps are displayed at any time.

User interface elements are described below:
