Colored Nodes

In order to simplify test-suite editing it is possible to assign colored marks to nodes.

Capture & Replay

Even in early stages of development Capture & Replay offers a easy way to create tests. An early start of such regression tests and the assignment of unique names / IDs are the most important bases for efficient (due to stable recognition) test automation.

Using QF-Test as Calculator

Sometimes it is necessary to perform mathematical calculations in QF-Test, e.g. in order to calculate the expected height of a GUI element in dependence of the complete window size or the exact clicking position for a mouse click.
