Over time we are going to upload videos for every chapter of the tutorial which will lead you step by step through QF-Test.

Transforming nodes into procedures

As already mentioned at the beginning of the last section, QF-Test offers an alternative, much faster way to create a procedure:

  • Action Select the test-step or sequence node that contains the reusable steps to be transformed into a procedure.
  • Select menu item »Operations«-»Transform node into«-»Procedure« or use the [Ctrl-Shift-P] shortcut.

You will find that the test-step, respectively sequence node disappeared and there is a procedure call in its place. Moreover, a procedure was created in the Procedures section containing the child nodes of the former test-step / sequence node and named the same.

It is good practice with QF-Test to record a sequence, give it a name and immediately turn it into a procedure via [Ctrl-Shift-P] if you suspect it to be of use somewhere else, too.
