UI Elements


Print range
  • All. Previews the run results for the entire test or component.

  • Selection. Previews run results information for the selected branch in the run results tree.

Print format
  • Short. Previews a summary line (when available) for each item in the run results tree. This option is only available if you selected All in Print range.

  • Detailed. Previews all available information for each item in the run results tree, or for the selected branch, according to your selection in Print range. The preview includes still images associated with the steps in your run results. If a bitmap checkpoint step displays bitmaps, these are also included.

  • User-defined XSL. Enables you to browse to and select a customized .xsl file. You can create a customized .xsl file that specifies the information to be included in the preview, and the way it should appear. For more details, see Run results XML file.


Displays the run results on screen as they are displayed when printed.

Tip: If some of the information is cut off in the preview, for example, if checkpoint names are too long to fit in the display, click the Page Setup button in the Print Preview window and change the page orientation from Portrait to Landscape.
