Record and Run Settings Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests only

This dialog box enables you to set your record and run settings before you begin recording or running a GUI test.

To access
  1. Do one of the following:

    • Ensure that a GUI test or component is in focus in the document pane.
    • In the Solution Explorer, select a GUI test or component node or one of its child nodes.
  2. Select Record > Record And Run Settings.

Note: This dialog box opens automatically only before recording a new test, and does not open the next time you record in that test.

Important information
  • You can open this dialog box at any time, for example:

    • If you have already recorded one or more steps in the test, you can modify the settings before you continue recording.
    • If you want to run the test on a different application than the one you previously used, you can select a different application to test.
  • The tabs available in the Record and Run Settings dialog box depend on the loaded add-ins.
  • For details on the tab to use and the options available for the environment you are testing, see the Record and run settings for add-ins in the Unified Functional Testing Add-ins Guide.
  • When you run a test, or if you begin a new recording session on an existing test, UFT automatically uses the existing record and run settings for the test and does not open the Record and Run Settings dialog box. However, it is important to confirm that the options in the Record and Run Settings dialog box are appropriate for the first step of your test before running it because you (or someone else) may have modified the Record and Run Settings dialog box manually in a prior recording session.
