QuickTest Window


The QuickTest window displays your testing documents in the document area.

You can work on one test and one or more function libraries simultaneously. (For your convenience, you can display one active document in the document area, or you can cascade or tile your open documents.) For more information, see Working With Multiple Documents.

Document Area

The document area of the QuickTest window can display the following document types:

Test. Enables you to create, view, and modify your test in Keyword View or Expert View.
Function Library. Enables you to create, view, and modify functions (operations) for use with your test. For more information, see Working with User-Defined Functions and Function Libraries.

Key Elements in the QuickTest Window

In addition to the document area, the QuickTest window contains the following key elements:

QuickTest title bar. Displays the name of the active document. If changes have been made since it was last saved, an asterisk (*) is displayed next to the document name in the title bar.
Menu bar. Displays menus of QuickTest commands.
Standard toolbar. Contains buttons to assist you in managing your document.
Automation toolbar. Contains buttons to assist you in the testing process.
Debug toolbar. Contains buttons to assist you in debugging your document. (Not displayed by default)
Edit toolbar. Contains buttons to assist you in editing your test or function library.
Insert toolbar. Contains buttons to assist you when working with steps and statements in your test or function library.
Tools toolbar. Contains buttons with tools to assist you in the testing process.
View toolbar. Contains buttons to assist you in viewing your document.
Action toolbar. Contains buttons and a list of actions, enabling you to view the details of an individual action or the entire test flow. (Not displayed by default)
Document tabs and scroll arrows. Enables you to navigate open documents in the document area by selecting the tab of the document you want to activate (bring into focus). When there is not enough space in the document area to display all of the tabs simultaneously, you can use the left and right arrows to scroll between your open documents.
Keyword View. Contains each step, and displays the object hierarchy, in a modular, icon-based table.
Expert View. Contains each step as a VBScript line. In object-based steps, the VBScript line defines the object hierarchy.
Active Screen. Provides a snapshot of your application as it appeared when you performed a certain step during the recording session.
Information pane. Displays a list of syntax errors found in your test and function library scripts.
Missing Resources pane. Provides a list of the resources that are specified in your test but cannot be found, such as missing calls to actions, unmapped shared object repositories, and parameters that are connected to shared object repositories. (Not displayed by default)
Data Table. Assists you in parameterizing your test. The Data Table contains the Global tab and a tab for each action.
Debug Viewer pane. Assists you in debugging your document. The Debug Viewer pane contains the Watch, Variables, and Command tabs. (Not displayed by default)
Status bar. Displays the status of the QuickTest application and other relevant information.

You can customize the layout of the QuickTest window by moving, resizing, displaying, or hiding most of the elements. QuickTest remembers your preferred layout settings and opens subsequent sessions with your customized layout
Note: By default, the QuickTest window uses the Microsoft Office 2003 theme. You can change the look and feel of the main QuickTest window, as required
