Inserting a Result Comment in a Visual Test

Result comments allow you to provide supplemental information about a visual test in the result. After playback of a visual test, the comment appears as a step in the Details tab of the Result window.

Tip: In addition to inserting a result comment, you can also use a flag to insert a comment on a selected step.
  1. For a visual test, in the Test Steps pane of a visual test, select the step that you want the result comment to appear after.
  2. Choose Insert > Result Comment. A Result Comment step appears in the Test Step pane and properties for this step appear in the Properties pane.
  3. In the Properties pane, perform one of the following steps:
    • Type a comment in the Expression property value text box.
    • Click the text box to enable the Select button from which you can select a variable or create an expression to use as the comment value.
  4. Play back the visual test. From the Details tab of the result, you can view the comment in the Result Detail column of the Result Comment step.
