Re: [QF-Test] HTML report for enabled/disabled state checks

I used the new HTML report, not the old style.
Would be good if the HTML report can be used for developers or people who are not so into the QF Test tool.
Thanks for being open to the ideas.

No problem, I know that feeling... :-)

Hmm. A screenshot of just the target component after a failed check is
not a bad idea.

Anyway, are you talking about old or new-style reports? In the
old-style reports you can get the check comment logged by starting it
with a '!'. In the new-style reports, checks are currently more or
less ignored. This is on the TODO for the next medium upgrade. You
should get a screenshot logged, however.

In general the idea is that the report gives you an idea about what
went wrong and the run-log has the detail. In most cases you'll need
to look at the log anyway to find the actual source of the problem.
But I agree that the report could be more helpful in this regard. As
you said, even the component ID would help.

Best regards,
