Viewing Checkpoint Results

You can view the results of a specific checkpoint in your test. A checkpoint helps you to identify specific changes in the behavior of objects in your application.

To display the results of a checkpoint:

  • Choose Tools > Test Results or click the Test Results button in the main WinRunner window to open the Test Results window.
  • In the results tree, look for the checkpoint you want to check.
  • Failed checks are preceded by a red X; passed checks are preceded by a green check mark.
  • Each checkpoint node specifies the checkpoint type. All checkpoint nodes except single-property checks also list the name and iteration of the checkpoint, which helps you identify the node you want to view.

For example:

end GUI checkpoint (gui3:2)

gui3 is the name of the expected results file for the checkpoint. The 2 after the colon indicates that this is the second time this checkpoint was run in the script (for example, the second iteration in a loop).

  • Click the node for the checkpoint you want to analyze. Basic details about the checkpoint are displayed in the Event Summary pane.
  • In the Event Summary pane, click the Show Event Details link. The relevant dialog box opens.
  • Click OK to close the dialog box.

The remaining topics in this section describe the results information that is provided for various event types.
