Hi -

I have two tests in the project, Test1 and Test2.
The Test1 is started first in web browser (Silverlight app) and then IE closed when the Test1 is completed and new IE instance is being started for the Test2.
But I want to continue with Test2 from where the Test1 was finished. I don't want to close IE and start new one. How to attain this?

Many thanks,
Vitaliy

Hello Vitaliy,
put the two tests in a TestList and simply set RecycleBrowser to true from the Settings:
http://www.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools/support/documentation/user-guide/test-execution/test-list-settings.aspx

  • RecycleBrowser - when set to true, one instance of the browser is launched and recycled throughout all tests until Manager.Dispose is called.

I hope this helps.

Hello Stoich,

Yes, that helped, but partially. When the setting is on all tests performed in one browser - that's ok, but in additional i need to start new test from the place where the previous one is finished. Currently Telerik starts new test from navigating to base URL.

Thx

Hello Vitaliy,
you can chain the tests together by using the TestAsStep feature:
http://www.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools/support/documentation/user-guide/add-custom-step/test-as-step.aspx

That way each test will pick up EXACTLY where the last test left off.

It seem to me this is exactly what you're looking for. Let me know how it goes.
