Steps Pane Context Menu

When execution is suspended at a breakpoint, you can access a context menu for the Steps pane by right-clicking the name or icon of a step.

The Steps pane context menu can contain the following items:

  • Breakpoint—Launches a submenu that contains the following options for modifying the breakpoint settings:
    • Toggle Breakpoint—Sets or clears the breakpoint state for the selected steps.
    • Breakpoint Settings—Launches the Breakpoint Settings dialog box for the selected step.
  • Run Mode—Launches a submenu from which you can set the run mode for the selected steps. The following run mode values are possible:
    • Force to Pass—The step does not execute. Instead, the status of the step is set to Passed.
    • Force to Fail—The step does not execute. Instead, the status of the step is set to Failed.
    • Skip—The step does not execute. Instead, the status of the step is set to Skipped.
    • Normal—The step executes normally.
      Note Note  TestStand does not load the code module when the Run Mode for the step is set to Force to Pass, Force to Fail, or Skip.
  • Set Next Step to Cursor—TestStand starts from the selected step when you resume execution.
  • Run Selected Steps—Runs the selected steps in interactive mode.
  • Loop on Selected Steps—Loops on the selected steps in interactive mode. Before running the steps, this command launches the Loop on Selected Steps dialog box, in which you can specify the number of times to loop, and a stop condition TestStand evaluates after it executes each step.
  • Show Step in Variables—Moves from the Steps pane to the Variables pane and selects the step you were viewing on the Steps pane. Use this command to view the values of the custom properties of a step after it executes.
  • Show Step in Sequence File—Displays the selected step in a Sequence File window.
  • Step List Configurations—Lists the layouts the Edit Step List Configurations dialog box defines.
  • View—Lists the available panes or windows for an execution. These commands are available only when an Execution window is active.
    • Steps—Displays the Steps pane, where you can trace the execution of steps.
    • Variables—Displays the Variables pane, where you can view and modify variables and properties values for the active context when an execution is suspended.
    • Report—Displays the Report pane, where you can view the report for the execution.
