General Playback page

You use the General Playback page to set script playback options, such as the amount of time HCL OneTest™ UI looks for an object and waits before trying to find an object again. You can also elect to skip all verification points in the script.

The General Playback page has the following controls:

Note: In the Use Default field for each control, clear the check box to edit the value in the field or select the check box to restore the default value.
Show exception dialog
The exception dialog box is displayed if an exception occurs during playback.
Perform playback in interactive mode
To resolve common runtime situations dynamically.
Maximum time to attempt to find Test Object
The maximum amount of time, in seconds, that HCL OneTest UI attempts to find an object. See example.
Pause between attempts to find Test Object
Indicates, in seconds, how long HCL OneTest UI waits before trying to find an object again. See example.
Skip Verification Points
When selected, skips all verification points in the script.
Timeout used in waitForExistence( ) method
Indicates, in seconds, the maximum amount of additional time that HCL OneTest UI waits (after time specified in Maximum time to attempt to find test object) for an object. For example, this setting is useful when waiting for an application to open. The waitForExistence( ) method must be explicitly stated in the script.
Retry time used in waitForExistence( ) loop
Indicates, in seconds, the interval between attempts to find an object. If HCL OneTest UI does not find an object, it continues to try until the time specified in Timeout used in waitForExistence( ) method has expired.
Restore Defaults
Restores the default values on this page.
Apply
Saves the edits you made without closing the dialog box.
