User interface elements are described below:

UI Elements Description

The status that will result from this step from the Status list:

  • Passed. Causes this step to pass. Sends the specified message to the report.

  • Failed. Causes this step (and therefore the test itself) to fail. Sends the specified message to the report.

  • Done. Sends a message to the report without affecting the pass/fail status of the step.

  • Warning. Sends a warning status for the step, but does not cause the test to stop running, and does not affect its pass/fail status.


The name for the step, for example, Password edit box. This name is displayed in the run results as the node label for this step.


The description of this step. For example, Password edit box does not exist. The description is displayed in the step details in the run results.


The name of an image to include in the run results with this step. The image is displayed as part of the step details in the run results. The image can be any of the supported file types, such as BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIF, or PNG.


  • You cannot specify an image stored in ALM.
  • Including large images in the run results may impact performance.
  • If an image is specified as a relative path, UFT One first searches the Results folder for the image and then the search paths specified in the Folders pane of the Options dialog box (Tools > Options > GUI Testing tab > Folders node).
