QF-Test provides a certain number of node types. If you need additional functionality
you can implement it in a script node. To make life easier for you QF-Test comes with
a set of procedures implementing the most commonly needed additional functions.
You will find them in the standard procedures library.
When you cannot solve a problem using the provided node types it is a good idea
to have a look in the standard library whether there is a solution to your
problem. If you find a similar solution you can copy the procedure and adapt it
to your needs. For information about scripting please refer the the manual,
chapter 12 'Scripting'.
qfs.qft holds the standard procedures library.
As it is constantly being enhanced and distributed with every new version of
QF-Test you should not make any changes to procedures in that file, but
copy the procedure to your own test-suite if required and then adapt it.
To make use of
qfs.qft it needs to be included in your test-suite's root node.
With a newly created test-suite the file
qfs.qft is added automatically
to the list of included files.
Select the 'Test-suite' root node of your test-suite.
qfs.qft is available within the table for "Include files".
qfs.qft to this list, if it's not already there.
Path information is not necessary for
qfs.qft as the
directory of QF-Test is contained in the library path (see also
Reference part of the manual).
Add a procedure call to an arbitrary procedure from the
library. In the procedure chooser don't miss to switch to the respective tab.
In addition to the description provided in this tutorial you can find the full HTML
documentation of the standard library available via »Help«-»Standard Library qfs.qft...«
