Hi there 
        I have a test scenario where I Have a large number of rows of test data in my bound data source, but in any given test run only some of them will be valid, I have worked out how to use a logical If step to skip rows that are not relevant but I was wondering if there was a way I can get the test run to end after it has found a certain number of relevant records rather than waiting for it to check all the rest of the records.

So for example
let’s say I have 500 rows of data and I know that 5 of them are valid for this test, lets also say that the If statement finds that rows 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 are valid how can I tell test studio to stop the test run and not bother checking the other 491 rows?

Thanks

Carl

Hello Carl,
your best option might be to go by code:
http://www.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools/support/documentation/user-guide/coded_steps.aspx

You can probably workout some sort of a non-coded solution based on IF/Else and Loops  (addable from the GUI) but it will almost certainly be more trouble that its worth.

Here's what I would recommend:
put the verifications in a separate test (reference). Let's say we name it VerifyRows. We can put that in a while loop like so:
int counter=0;
 
while (counter > 7) {
 this.ExecuteTest("VerifyRows.tstest");
counter = VerifyRows.MyGlobalIntVariable
}

This solution hinges on the VerifyRows having a global, static int variable. VerfiyRows should have a way to increment this variable every time the event that you're looking for occurs (e.g. you find a row that you're looking for):

There are a lot of different ways to implement this - it will depend on your personal preference to a degree.

Let me know if you have any additional questions on this setup.
