Inserting a Status-Verification Function

A status-verification function enables you to verify a status value in a terminal-emulation input field. A status is a name-value pair (it is the value of the status name that is verified).

  1. Right-click an input field in Host Screen Info view.
  2. Choose Verify Status Value.
  3. The Insert Status Value Verification Function dialog box opens. Use this dialog box to specify the type of verification function that should be inserted into the BDL script. From the Verify that the value of the status list box, select the name of the status you want to verify.
  4. Select is equal to or is not equal to to define the status state you want to verify.
  5. Specify if the verification should be against a constant value or a parameter value.
  6. Specify whether or not the verification is to be Case sensitive and if white spaces should be ignored.
  7. In the Severity portion of the dialog box, specify the severity that is to be raised if the verification returns a negative result (Error, Warning, Informational, or Custom).
  8. Click OK to add the status-verification function to your test script. Once the BDL script has been successfully modified, repeat this process for each status verification that you wish to add to the BDL script.
