Updating PDF Checkpoints

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on May 16, 2024

You may need to update baseline data used by a PDF checkpoint in order for the checkpoint to pass. You can do this either from tests or from the test log after the test run is over.

From Tests

The baseline data used by PDF checkpoints are stored in the Stores > Files collection of your project as text files. You can update these files directly from your tests. This may be convenient if you need to batch update multiple checkpoints:

  1. Enable the global update option:

    1. Select Tools > Options from the TestComplete main menu. This will open the Options dialog.

    2. Select the Engines > Stores category.

    3. Select the Update files check box.

    4. Click OK to save the changes and close the dialog.

  1. Select the "checkpoint failed" message.

  2. Open the Details panel of the message.

  3. Click the Update the <Checkpoint_Name> checkpoint data link at the bottom of the panel.
