Subject: RE: [QF-Test] web test - open file option

Before a file selection dialog is displayed the QF-Test browser is showing up a small dialog with an OK-/Cancel-button. This helper dialog is needed by QF-Test to get the data out of the file selection dialog since this dialog is created natively by the operating system. After clicking the OK-button in the helper-dialog the native file selection dialog is displayed and you can enter the filename or select the file directly.
QF-Test allows to save the file or cancel the download. If you want to execute or open the file please use a 'Start process' or 'Execute shell command' afterwards, c.f.:
If you want to open a file which is not an executable, e.g. a .txt-file, you can use an 'Execute shell command' node and run:
start C:\somePath\somefile.txt
xdg-open /somePath/somefile.txt
This will open the .txt-file with the configured default application, e.g. Notepad or your default .txt-file editor.

Subject: [QF-Test] web test - open file option
I'm a beginner in using the QF-test...I searched, but no answer to my question :for a web test, I have a link in my page to a file....normally, when I click the link, in  the native window  there is an option also
to open the file.....  in the Qftest download dialog there are only 2 options : OK , which will open the saveAs native dialog and can I manage to have also when running the test the "open file "  option ?
