Occurs when the in-place editor is activated.


StartEditing(Data) Parameters
Data [in] Required Object


The StartEditing event occurs when the user activates the in-place editor for a custom keyword test operation displayed in the Keyword Test editor. This happens in the following cases:

  • The user clicks the corresponding cell of the Keyword Test editor twice (not double-click).

  • The user selects the cell and presses F2 or Space.

You can create a handler for this event to perform specific actions upon activating the in-place editor. For example, you can store the initial value to be displayed in the editor into a helper global script variable or operation field. This value could be taken from the operation’s parameter or field that is displayed in the appropriate column of the Keyword Test editor.


The event has the one parameter:


An object that provides access to the operation fields. This object contains properties that correspond to individual operation fields and whose names coincide with the field names.
