function CreateManualTest()
{
  // Clears the test properties
  ManualTestBuilder.Reset();

  // Specifies the test name
  ManualTestBuilder.Name = "NewManualTest";

  // Creates the root step of the test
  var RootStep = ManualTestBuilder.Root;
  // Specifies the root step properties
  RootStep.ID = "RootStep";
  RootStep.Caption = "Manual Test";
  RootStep.IsXMLContent = false;
  RootStep.InstructionsText = "Click Begin Test";

  ...

  // Adds new substeps and specifies their properties
  var TestStep = RootStep.AddSubstep();
  TestStep.Id = "STEP_1";
  TestStep.Caption = "Step 1";
  TestStep.Enabled = true;
  TestStep.IsXMLContent = false;
  TestStep.InstructionsURL = "C:\\Work Folder\\Manual Tests\\Step1.htm";
