This article presents a simple method of inserting a verification point from the script explorer using IBM RFT
The most common way to create a verification point is while recording. But we can also insert a verification point any time from the Script Explorer (in RFT – Java Scripting, the right-most pane and in RFT – VB.NET Scripting, the leftmost pane) in the RFT window when we are not recording.
Steps to insert a verification point while we are not recording are as under:
Step – 1: Start the test application if it is not open.
Step – 2: Open the script we want to insert the verification point into so that it is displayed in the script window.
Step – 3: Put the cursor at the place in the script that we want to insert the verification point.
Step – 4: Right-click “Verification Points” in the Script Explorer, and click “Insert Verification Point”.
This will open the Verification Point and Action Wizard.
Step – 5: On the “Select an Object” page, use one of the selection methods to pick the object in the application, and click “Next”.
Step – 6: On the “Select an Action” page, select one of the verification point types. Click“Next”.
Step – 7: Edit the verification point properties or data.
Step – 8: Click “Finish”.
The verification point will be added to our script in the location of the cursor, and will be added to the Script Explorer in the Verification Points list.
Important: If we click “Finish” and have no properties or data selected for testing (checked), a warning will display and the script is not modified.
