The Testpoints Window

The Testpoints Window is used to configure, view and execute test constraints on the currently selected Testpoint object. This window is context-sensitive, responding to the item currently selected within either the Project Browser or Diagram View.

Configured tests can be executed using the Testpoints Window Toolbar, and test results can be saved for later review.

For an Operation, this column shows a Testpoint marker icon (TestpointMarkerIcon) if the Analyzer has been able to successfully bind this operation with a defined Testpoint.  If Testpoints are defined for an operation but no icon appears in this column during a test run, this may indicate a failure to bind.

For a Testpoint, this column shows a generated id number.  This id number is used in trace output to indicate which constraint is being referenced.




A pencil icon (TestpointConstraintsPencil) in this column indicates that one or more constraints are defined for this Class or Operation.
