Walk-through the IF...Else Statement process - how to build a meaningful if...else statement and what the execution status looks like.
1. Create a Web Test and click Record.
2. Navigate to www.random.org.
3. Set the Min field to 1 and the Max field to 2.
4. Click Generate.
5. Enable hover over highlighting by clicking Highlight Element in the Test Studio Recorder and hover over the Result box.
6. Click Quick Tasks and double click Verify - text contains '1'.
7. Disable hover over highlighting and minimize the browser.
8. Choose Conditions in the Step Builder and add if...else step.
9. From the drop down in the IF step select the previously recorded verification.
10. Uncheck/Delete the verification outside the IF step, so it will not be executed (We have this verification already added in the IF step)
11. Bring up the IE recording window and navigate to www.google.com. Minimize the browser again.
12. Drag the Navigate to Google step into the IF step.
13. Bring up the IE recording window and navigate to www.bing.com. Minimize the browser again.
14. Drag the Navigate to Bing step into the ELSE step.
15. Save and Execute the test.
- If 1 is generated the if condition is evaluated as true and the steps in the if branch are executed. The steps in the else branch are skipped and shown as 'Not Run'.
- If 2 is generated the if condition is evaluated as false (for example, the target TextBox element contains the wrong content) and the steps in the else branch are executed. The skipped steps are in the if branch and are shown as 'Not Run'.
Note: if the condition of an if branch cannot be evaluated (for example, the target element for a TextContent verification cannot be located), the steps in the if branch will be skipped again, and will display a 'not-run' icon as if the condition is false.
