Re: [QF-Test] Retrieving the current value of a QFTest Option

Hi Denis,

there's currently no rc.getOption method, but we'll probably add it as
it might come in handy.

In your case however, you should not need it. You must not do your own
polling in your Checker implementation because all methods of a
Checker are always called by QF-Test on the event dispatch thread. If
you try to do polling there, you'll block the thread and prevent the
SUT from updating the component that you're trying to check, thus
defeating your own purpose.

QF-Test uses the check poll interval to call your checker repeatedly,
but its polling loop is run in a background thread, so the SUT is free
to update its UI during the interval.

And no, nothing new about 'Fetch count'. It wouldn't be able to do
anything that you can do at script level anyway so I don't see where
it would help.

Best regards,
    Greg
