In my previous blog I had explained about how action recording gets created for the test case as you test your application manually. In this blog I will describe how to use that action recording for fast forwarding the test. This is again a very simple thing to achieve.
Get to the test runner by running the test from MTLM. Click on “Start Test”. But this time do not select “Create action recording” check box. Since you have already created action recording for this test, you need not record again unless your application has changed. The test runner looks like below at this stage:
Two things to notice here:
If you want to see the actions recorded in the region, you can click on the drop drown next to “Play” button and click on the “Preview” option.
You will get the actions that are recorded for that region.
You saw how you can create automation recording for some of the mundane tasks that you perform during manual testing and “Fast Forward” them during the subsequent test execution.
