Step Generator Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests and scripted GUI components

This dialog box enables you to add steps that perform operations, using test object methods (for tests only), Utility object methods, or function calls.

To access

This dialog box can be accessed from the following locations:

  • Keyword View

  • Editor

  • Function Library

  • Active Screen

To open the dialog box:

  1. Ensure that a GUI test or action is in focus in the document pane.

  2. Select the location to insert the step, and do one of the following:

    • Right-click and select Insert Step > Step Generator, or Insert Step > Step Generator.

    • Press F7 (not available for Active Screen).

    • Select Design > Step Generator.

Important information
  • Although the Step Generator shows information regarding the currently selected step or function, selections that you make in the Step Generator add a new step or function to your test; they do not modify the existing step or function.

  • In the Step Generator, if you add an operation that returns an object, and the assignment in the test is missing a Set statement, the run session will fail.
