The three parts of Testup Editor are:
1. Test Device
The browser window of your website you like to test on the chosen device.
2. Action List
Actions (checks and inputs) are the steps of a test case. An action is either
- Check of anchor area and input an action with it or
- Keyboard inputs.
3. Editor menu
The interaction panel where you add, configure and run test case steps.
Test Device displays your website on a Device Screen chosen by you in test case settings. The actions you add during creating a test case are also displayed on a Device Screen. The visible actions are:
- drawing an anchor area
- performing a click
- performing a swipe
- selecting sections of you website
On the device screen you see the results of all checks and inputs.
Anchor Area (fail and pass)
The core of testing is the definition of anchor areas. If the reference image in the anchor area is not found on the Test device, the test status returns fail. If all anchor areas of a test were found during a run, the test status returns pass.
Action list provides you with detailed information before, during or after recording a test step.
- Definition of the recorded action (check, swipe, press key etc.)
