The Canvas

Relevant for: GUI tests and API testing

The canvas provides a visual representation of the GUI or API test flow. It opens as a tab in the document pane.

GUI tests in the canvas

Working with the canvas closed can improve UFT One's performance when creating or opening a GUI test.

  • Drag actions to reorder them.

  • Right-click an element in the canvas to access settings, or to run or debug a test from a specific action.

  • Double-click an action to open it for editing.

  • Double-click the Start or End shape in the canvas to open the Test Flow Details action. This is a read-only action that controls the test flow. Make sure it contains only the content the test is meant to run.

    Note: In the file system, the Test Flow Details action is saved as Action 0.
