Visual Basic
Public Function AddNewAction( _
   ByVal Name As String, _
   ByVal Description As String, _
   ByVal ScriptContent As String, _
   ByVal Reusable As Boolean, _
   ByVal ActionPosition As qtActionPosition _
) As Action
The name of the new action.
A textual description of the action.
A single string containing the VBScript content of the action script. For line breaks, use vbCrLf or Chr(13)+Chr(11).
Indicates whether the action is set as a reusable action.
Indicates whether the call to the new action will be added as the first or last step in the parent action.
qtAtBeginingThe beginning of the test or parent action.
qtAtEndThe end of the test or parent action.
  • If the script contains syntax or other errors, the AddNewAction step will fail.
  • Using this method, you can add the new action only to the beginning (first step) or end (last step) of the parent action script.

Tip: To add the action to another location in the parent script, add the action to the beginning of the script, then retrieve the parent action script using the GetScript method, modify the script content to place the action call in the required location, and then use the SetScript method to update it.
