Add a new step using the NEW STEP button, right-clicking, or dragging and dropping from the Toolbox pane.
You can also click in the Item cell, and select an object for your step. To specify a function instead of an object, select Operation from the Item list.
In the Item column, click in the Value cell to activate it, and enter a value for each argument.
You can enter constant or parameterized values.
Separate multiple argument values with commas.
In tests, after first defining a regular statement (such as x=10), it can be edited only in the Editor.
Click the button in the required Value cell. The parameter list opens, with individual tabs for each type of parameter.
Double-click the parameter you want to use.
To add a new parameter, click Add New Parameter at the bottom of the parameter list. Then, define the type, name, and optionally the location in a data table for the new parameter.
You can encode passwords for use in method arguments and data table cells. For details on how to encode passwords, see:
|Actions||Password Encoder Tool.|
|Components stored in ALM||
Do not encode passwords in UFT.
When business component tests run from ALM, all values are treated as strings.
If you encode a password in UFT using the Password Encoder Tool, the resulting string, for example, 4b8a4a999d0d0e2c9b6cce8bb8e3, will be used instead of the password it represents.

When your components are later upgraded to ALM, the upgrade process automatically converts existing encoded strings to a format recognized by ALM.
Select the conditional or loop statement step after and outside of which you want to add the new step.
Right-click the conditional or loop statement and select Insert New Step After Block, or press Shift+Insert. A new step is added to the Keyword View at the end of the conditional or loop block, outside of the conditional or loop statement (as a sibling).
Specify the content of the step by modifying it, as described in Standard steps in the Keyword View.
