    Deprecating VS2008 Support in Test Studio 2013 Releases

    October 26, 2012 Share
    With each release of Test Studio, we carefully test our integration points with all external systems to make sure we work seamlessly with the latest and greatest versions of these systems. Test Studio has many dependencies that we rely on to offer our customers a great user experience. These dependencies include all the browsers we automate (IE, FF, Chrome & Safari), Visual Studio that we plug-in and recently Quality Center and TeamPulse which we integrate with.

    Editing a Verification for an IF Conditional

    October 02, 2012 Share
    Test Studio’s IF Conditional steps are extraordinarily handy feature which enable you to handle branching in your tests based on specific conditions. There are a number of scenarios where this can ensure your tests are a bit more robust—logging in to your system if needed is one example.

To build a data-driven locator, fire up the recorder, pick an element from the menu (#1 ...
