Script Step

This function adds a coded step, opens the code editor, and allows you to input custom code. This is for more complicated steps that cannot be recorded through the user interface. Visit the Coded Steps section for more detail.

In the Standalone version, write your code in the white area under Routine and Description. Note that the coded step is named after the test and you can input a custom description. If you receive an Assembly Reference error upon execution, please see our article on How to Add an Assembly Reference in the Standalone version.
