Invariably we come across a situation that we need to do additional recording in an already existing script.

It is quite simple in RFT. The only thing we need to do is to bring the cursor at the desired location in the existing script & start the recording from there onward. The process of such recording is no different from the fresh recording. All features like starting the applications, inserting the verification points, and adding the script support functions are available as usual.

Following are the steps to begin recording in an existing RFT script:

Step – 1: Bring the cursor to a location in the existing script from where onwards we intend to start the recording.

Step – 2: Next step is to open the "Recording Monitor" and starts the recording. This can be done in either of the following two ways:

Method – 1:
Click "Script" > "Insert Recording" from the In the RFT menu.

Method – 2: Click the "Insert Recording into Active Functional Test Script" button available In the RFT toolbar.

Step – 3:
Next step involves starting the test application. This can be done by clicking the "Start Application" button on the "Recording" toolbar.

Step – 4: Now we can perform all desired actions over the application.

Step – 5: We can record a verification point as well at this stage. This can be done by locating the object in the application desired to be tested. A verification point can be inserted by clicking the "Insert Verification Point or Action Command" button.

Step – 6: We can insert any desired feature at this stage. The features like a call script command, log entry, timer, script delay command, or comment into the script can be added by clicking the "Insert Script Support Commands" button.

Step – 7: We can terminate the application, in case closing of the application is desired to be a part of the script.

Step – 8: We can finish the recording operation by clicking the "Stop Recording" button.

This process restores the RFT window and displays the script.
