The "skip" functions expand the QF-Test debugger's capabilities in a powerful way which is
not typically possible for a debugger in a standard programming environment. In short,
they allow you to jump over one or more nodes without having to execute them. This
may be helpful for various reasons, e.g. to quickly navigate to a certain position
in your test run or to skip a node which currently leads to an error.
With the end of the last section, the test-suite should have reached the following state:
|Figure 23.7: Pause execution at first node of the second test-case|
Now press the Skip over button.
QF-Test simply jumps over the active node without executing any
child nodes. The active node now is the next node to be
executed on the same level.
At last, press the
button. You see that QF-Test skips all nodes on the same (or lower) level and
directly jumps to the next node one level up in hierarchy.
Use "Skip over" and "Skip out" cautiously as skipping
out of a sequence before it is completed can leave the SUT
in an unknown state that other sequences or tests in your
test-suite cannot react to.
