Settings

  • Always use Test.sstest: Defaults to False. If set to True, the test file name is set to Test.sstest rather than <test folder name>.sstest. This may be useful in rare cases when your testing framework has deep nested structure, you have very long file names and need to fit into 260 chars of Windows MAX_PATH limit.
  • AutoReloadModifiedFiles: If set to True, any files you modify outside of Rapise are automatically reloaded in Rapise.
  • Confirm Object Removal: Ask when deleting object form the Object Tree.
  • Convert Tabs to Spaces: True to force tabs to spaces conversion for the text editor.
  • DefaultFolder specifies  where new tests are kept before you explicitly save them.  The location is relative to the Rapise executable.
  • Default Scripting Language: JavaScript, RVL or Ask.
  • LoadLastTestOnStartup: If set to True, Rapise will open the last test you worked on and saved.  If set to False, Rapise will create a new test named MyTest<#> where <#> is an integer.  A folder for MyTest<#> is created in the folder specified by the DefaultFolder option.
  • NormalizeFileName: If set to True, files are referred to (in the *.sstest file) using a a path relative to the *.sstest file.  Otherwise, their absolute path is used.
  • RecentTests: The maximum number of recent files displayed in the Recent Tests list.  To see the Recent Tests list, open the Application Menu:

  • Remember Debugger Layout: If True, Rapise will remember the window layout for debug mode separately. For example, this may be useful if you want to work full screen while authoring the Test and half-screen to debug. This way the AUT and the Rapise debugger fit on the screen.

  • ShowCommonFileAliases: Legacy, not needed since Rapise 6.0.
  • Enable Execution Monitor: specifies whether the execution monitor dialog box will be displayed during playback.
  • ShowDashboardOnStartUp: If True, the Spira Dashboard will open automatically when Rapise is opened.
  • ShowStartPageOnStartUp: If True, the Start Page will open automatically when Rapise is opened.
  • Spira Integration: Enables all dialogs and menus for SpiraTest Integration.
  • Temp Folder: default folder for temporary tests.
  • Test Auto Upgrade: if set to True each opened .sstest file is automatically upgraded to the latest format.

Recorder

  • FrameStyle: Specifies which frame to draw around objects when you Record, Learn, and Spy.

    The Basic frame is on the left and the Modern frame is on the right:

    options dialog, framestyle basic options dialog, framestyle modern * DefaultSpy specifies which of the various types of Object Spy will be displayed by default. * GenerateComments: True to automatically generate JavaScript or RVL comment for each recorded action.
