Using WinRunner Commands - WinRunner

You can select WinRunner commands from the menu bar or from a toolbar. Certain WinRunner commands can also be executed by pressing softkeys.

Choosing Commands on a Menu

You can choose all WinRunner commands from the menu bar.
Clicking Commands on a Toolbar

You can execute some WinRunner commands by clicking buttons on the toolbars. WinRunner has four built-in toolbars: the File toolbar, the Test toolbar, the Debug toolbar, and the User toolbar. You can customize the User toolbar with the commands you use most frequently.

Creating a Floating Toolbar

You can change any toolbar to a floating toolbar. In addition, while the User toolbar is a floating toolbar, you can minimize WinRunner and still maintain access to the commands on the User toolbar, so you can work freely with the application being tested.

Double-click a toolbar handle to change it to a floating toolbar; double-click a floating toolbar title bar to snap it back into the toolbar area. You can also drag a toolbar handle or title bar to toggle it from a docked toolbar to a floating toolbar and vice versa.

The File Toolbar

The File toolbar contains buttons for the commands used for frequently performed tasks, such as opening and saving tests, viewing test results, and accessing help. The default location of the File toolbar is docked below the WinRunner menu bar.

Executing Commands Using Softkeys

You can execute some WinRunner commands by pressing softkeys. WinRunner reads input from softkeys even when the WinRunner window is not the active window on your screen, or when it is minimized.

Softkey assignments are configurable. If the application being tested uses a default softkey that is preconfigured for WinRunner, you can redefine it using WinRunner’s softkey configuration utility.
