Re: [QF-Test] rc.LogError method

Hello Hardik,

I'm afraid that's a common misapprehension, not least because we often
ask users to add a little logError script for analyzing support
issues. So let me explain...

The call rc.logError just logs an error. In case of an error,
regardless whether it comes from a script or from other nodes,
QF-Test takes screenshots. So normally you get a screenshot for your
error logs.

However, too many screenshots can quickly exhaust available memory, so
they are only taken for the first few errors, except in cases of split
run-logs where the default is to start again from 0.

This is all configurable. Please see the options

"Count screenshots individually for each split log",
"Create screenshots of the whole screen" and "Create screenshots of
the whole screen" at

for detailed information.

However, you normally don't need to change those options. To log a
screenshot independent of the error count, best use the procedure
qfs.screenshots.logScreenshot from our standard test-suite library

Best regards,
