TestArchitect includes a library of built-in actions
to perform a myriad of functions.
Built-in actions are automatically available with your installation of TestArchitect
. They can be found
listed in the Built-In Actions subtree of the repository tree.
are three categories of built-in actions:
- System actions
- Actions that interact with the system of the AUT host, such as those
that work with user input (e.g., type, click) , system resources (get clipboard), or the host file system (copy file).
- Test Support actions
- Includes automation control actions, like if and
sleep, and declaratory actions (argument, test case, test objective).
- User Interface actions
- Actual automation actions, such as enter and select menu item.
Built-in actions cannot be modified by you. They can, however, be used as building
blocks of custom user actions that you may create in the form of user-defined or user-scripted actions.
When writing your test, if you do not know which
built-in actions to use, it is suggested you use the TestArchitect
, a tool to record your manual
mouse and keyboard operations when testing an application. The interactive
operations generate the corresponding built-in actions.
