Operation Parameters

When you add the operation to your keyword test, TestComplete displays the wizard that contains the following pages:

Select Variable

On this page, you select the variable whose value you want to set.

To create a new variable, click Add Variable and enter the variable name, select its type and value.

Table Indexes

The wizard shows this page if the selected variable is a table variable.

On this page, specify the column and row index of the table cell the value of which you want to set. Both column and row indexes are zero-based. You can either type the desired index or click the ellipsis button and specify it in the ensuing Edit Parameter dialog.

Set New Value

On this page, you specify the value you want to set to a variable:

NewValue

Variant. Specifies the value to be assigned to the variable.

You can type the value, or you can select an existing parameter or variable the value of which you want to set to the variable, or you can specify a code expression the result of which you want to set to a variable, and so on. To learn more, see Specifying Operation Parameters.
