Generate report with preview screenshots from recording

Post by bierzt » Fri Oct 19, 2012 7:29 am

Hi,

is there a simple way of integrating the "preview" screenshots from the recording into the report, so that each step is also documented by image?

Hello,

Normally such tracing screenshots are just shown when a test step failed.
You can enable/disable "Capture Tracing Screenshots" in the global settings to enable or disable screenshots in case of an error.

There is a way to make a screenshot by using 'Add new action', 'Report', change 'Action name' to screenshot and drag the specific item from the repository to the action.

Hi,

so there's no simple way of capturing screenshots when there's no error. Is this correct?

If I want to have a screenshot for documentation for each step, I need to add the screenshot manually by sing 'Add new action', 'Report', change 'Action name' to screenshot manually. Is this correct?
