Create a Custom Coded Step
Test Studio supports coded steps. This allows you to write code and have it executed as a test step. Use a coded step for a scenario that requires more complexity than what can be composed with the Verification Builder or by actions from the Elements Menu.
There are two methods of creating a code behind file for your test.
- Add a Script Step from the Add menu.
Right click on a step and select Customize Step in Code from the Test Step Context Menu.
- This creates a code-behind file with an empty test method.
- This creates a code-behind file with the selected step converted into a coded method matching the selected step name.
A step with generated code is read-only in the Steps tab. The description can only be changed in the method's CodedStep attribute that appears in the code behind file. Once a step is converted to code, it cannot be converted back to a regular step.
