General Playback page

You use the General Playback page to set script playback options, such as the amount of time Functional Tester 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:

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.

To resolve common runtime situations dynamically.

Maximum time to attempt to find Test Object

The maximum amount of time, in seconds, that Functional Tester attempts to find an object. See example.

Pause between attempts to find Test Object

Indicates, in seconds, how long Functional Tester 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 Functional Tester 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 Functional Tester does not find an object, it continues to try until the time specified in Timeout used in waitForExistence( ) method has expired.
