How to verify a control if its value starts with the pound key?

A: TestArchitect recognizes the pound key (#) character as the beginning of an expression. In order to get around this issue, insert a back slash ( \ ) escape character before the value being verified.

For example, you may want to verify the contents of a text box whose value is expected to be #john. In the test editor, you would write:

              window        control         value
check         login         user name       \#john
