Example

The following example demonstrates how to obtain the ManualTestStep object in script.

JavaScript, JScript

function ManualTest()
{
  var RootStep, TestStep;
  // Clears the test properties
  ManualTestBuilder.Reset();

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

  // Obtains the root step of the manual test and specifies its properties
  RootStep = ManualTestBuilder.Root;

  // ...

  // Adds a new substep and specifies the test step properties
  TestStep = RootStep.AddSubstep();
  // ...

  // Adds more test steps

  // ...

  // Saves the test to a file
  ManualTestBuilder.Save("C:\\Work Folder\\ManualTest\\", false);

}

Python

def ManualTest():
  # Clears the test properties 
  ManualTestBuilder.Reset()
  # Specifies the test name 
  ManualTestBuilder.Name = "NewManualTest";
  # Obtains the root step of the manual test and specifies its properties 
  RootStep = ManualTestBuilder.Root;
  # ... 
  # Adds a new substep and specifies the test step properties 
  TestStep = RootStep.AddSubstep()
  # ...
  # Adds more test steps
  # ...
  # Saves the test to a file 
  ManualTestBuilder.Save("C:\\Work Folder\\ManualTest\\", False)

VBScript

Sub ManualTest

  ' Clears the test properties
  ManualTestBuilder.Reset

  ' Specifies the test name
  ManualTestBuilder.Name = "NewManualTest"

  ' Obtains the root step of the manual test and specifies its properties
  Set RootStep = ManualTestBuilder.Root

  ' ...

  ' Adds a new substep and specifies the test step properties
  Set TestStep = RootStep.AddSubstep
  ' ...

  ' Adds more test steps

  ' ...

  ' Saves the test to a file
  Call ManualTestBuilder.Save("C:\Work Folder\ManualTest\", False)

End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure ManualTest();
var RootStep, TestStep;
begin
  // Clears the test properties
  ManualTestBuilder.Reset;

  // Specifies the test name
  ManualTestBuilder.Name := 'NewManualTest';

  // Obtains the root step of the manual test and specifies its properties
  RootStep := ManualTestBuilder.Root;

  // ...

  // Adds a new substep and specifies the test step properties
  TestStep := RootStep.AddSubstep;
  // ...

  // Adds more test steps

  // ...

  // Saves the test to a file
  ManualTestBuilder.Save('C:\Work Folder\ManualTest\', false);

end;

C++Script, C#Script

function ManualTest()
{
  var RootStep, TestStep;
  // Clears the test properties
  ManualTestBuilder["Reset"]();

  // Specifies the test name
  ManualTestBuilder["Name"] = "NewManualTest";

  // Obtains the root step of the manual test and specifies its properties
  RootStep = ManualTestBuilder["Root"];

  // ...

  // Adds a new substep and specifies the test step properties
  TestStep = RootStep["AddSubstep"]();
  // ...

  // Adds more test steps

  // ...

  // Saves the test to a file
  ManualTestBuilder["Save"]("C:\\Work Folder\\ManualTest\\", false);
