Re: [QF-Test] Blocking Tests on purpose until user reacts

Thanks, that would be a solution, though not quite what we need (non technical user, does not want to have to enter anything).
We run our smoke tests on all our systems, including the production system. Therefore we need a pop up to make sure that the user (who ist usually not a tester) acknowledges that he knows he is working with real data. Just a reminder really.

I started by trying to do it in Jython (example from the tutorial below) but that did not block my tests.
from javax import swing
import sys
f = swing.JFrame(sys.argv[1], size=(200,200),
f.visible = 1

It does work if I write my own Java class, however, which is fine for me. So, problem solved.

package ...;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

 * Die Klasse öffnet einen Informationsdialog. Die Tests warten auf Bestätigung
 * durch den User, bis sie weiter fortfahren.
 * @author Stephan Wiesner
public class InfoGui {

	public InfoGui() {	}

	 * Erzeugt einen Modal dialog mit Ja/Nein/Abbrechen
	public boolean acceptQuestion(String question) {
		JFrame frame = new JFrame(question);
		int answer = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(frame, question);
		boolean result = false;
		if (answer == JOptionPane.YES_OPTION) {
			result = true;
		else result = false;
		return result;

Freundliche Grüsse,

Hello Stephan,

of course you could write a Jython server script to do that, but
there's a much more simple way: Use an interactive 'Set variable' node
for a dummy variable. You can specify an arbitrary text for the
message. Please see the manual for details about other options like
