Understanding the Unified Report View Results Window - WinRunner

If you are new to WinRunner, or you are integrating WinRunner and QuickTest tests, it is recommended to use the Unified Report view. For information on analyzing the results of a called QuickTest test, see “Integrating with QuickTest Professional.”

To view the unified report, choose Tools > General Options. In the Run category, confirm that Unified report view is selected.

Note:You can display the unified report view for a test only if either the Unified report view or the Generate unified report information option was selected when you ran the test. If you ran a test with WinRunner report view selected and Generate unified report information cleared, then you cannot view the unified report for that test run.

To open the Test Results window, choose Tools > Test Results or click the Test Results button. The WinRunner Test Results window opens in the unified report view.

Results Tree

The Results tree shows a hierarchical view of all events performed during the test run. Selecting an event in the results tree displays additional details of the event in the Event Summary pane. You can expand and collapse the tree or individual nodes in the tree. You can also use the Filter and Find options for easier navigation.

Test Summary

Contains overview information about the test run including the run start time, run end time, total test run time, user name, and a summary of checkpoint results.

NoteUnlike the WinRunner report view, the Unified report view counts single-property checks in the GUI checkpoint summary. Therefore, the total number of GUI checkpoints in the Unified report view may differ from the number displayed in the WinRunner report view.

Event Summary

Contains summary information about the event that is currently selected in the results tree, including the event type, status, line number, event time, and a basic description of what was checked.

For checkpoints (including single-property checks), the Event Summary also includes a link to the event details. For example, if you click the Show Event Details link for a bitmap checkpoint, then the expected, actual, and difference images open. If you click the link for a GUI Checkpoint, the GUI Checkpoint Results window opens.

Note:To view checkpoint details, WinRunner must be installed on the Test Results computer.

Finding Results Steps

The Find dialog box enables you to find specified steps such as errors or warnings from within the Test Results. You can select a combination of statuses to find, for example, steps that are Passed and Done.
