Stepping Through Script Playback from a Selected Point

During debugging, you can execute the script from where playback was suspended by a breakpoint.

  1. Set a breakpoint at a specific line in the script.
  2. Press F5 to playback the script. Playback executes to the breakpoint, suspends and enters debug mode.
  3. Press F8 to playback the script to the next breakpoint. If the code executes successfully, playback re-enters debug mode and the next code to be played back is highlighted in yellow. If the code does not playback successfully, the Playback Error dialog box opens.
  4. Press F8 to step through playback of the remaining code in the script. Playback executes to the set breakpoint. The script displays in debug mode where you can step through the playback execution, control the step playback execution, or playback to/from certain points in the script. While stepping through a script, use the Monitor Variables window to get a snapshot of variable use at critical points in the execution of any test. During debugging, you can also configure scripts to playback from a specific line of the code.
