  • Test steps in an if branch are skipped when an If condition was evaluated as false (for example, the target TextBox element contains the wrong content). Likewise, steps in an else branch are skipped when the if condition is evaluated as true. Steps skipped for this reason show a 'not-run' icon.     
    If is skipped

  • However, 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, and will display a 'not-run' icon.
