Relevant for: GUI tests only
What is the Run tab? This tab enables you to instruct UFT to run only one iteration on the called action, to run iterations on all rows in the Data pane, or to run iterations only for a certain row range in the Data pane.
When you should use the Run tab? Use this tab when you have data entered in the Data pane and you want to instruct UFT how to use this data during a test run.
In the Action Call Properties Dialog Box, select the Run tab.
What do you want to know?
Each of the options in this tab enables very different behavior from the test run:
- Run one iteration only: This runs only one iteration of the test, using just the first row in the Data pane sheet. Therefore, if you need to test multiple different values, do not select this option.
- Run on all rows: This option runs one iteration per row in the Data pane, enabling you to run the application multiple times with different data.
- Run from row __ to row __: This option runs multiple iterations, but beginning on a selected row and ending on a selected row. As a result, if you have specific data with which you want to run the test, select this option.
If you run multiple iterations on an action, the action must begin and end at the same point in the application, so that the application is in the proper location and state to run the next iteration of the action.
This tab applies to individual action calls and refers to the rows in the action's data sheet. You can set the Run properties for an entire test (setting iterations for rows on the Global data sheet) from the Run pane in the Test Settings dialog box.
