Public Property RunMode As String

Property description

UFT One runs your test or component in two modes: fast or non-fast.

  • Fast mode: Neither displays the execution arrow in the left margin of the Keyword View or Editor nor expands the Keyword View or shows the Editor of each action as UFT One runs. This mode requires fewer system resources.

  • Non-fast mode (Debug / Normal): Displays the execution arrow to the left of each step or statement as UFT One runs. For a test with multiple actions, the Keyword View expands to display the steps, and the Editor displays the script, of the currently running action. This mode requires more system resources.

Note: You must have Microsoft Script Debugger installed to enable the non-fast mode and this mode is relevant only when running UFT One in Visible mode.
