    I'm new to Test Studio and was trying to add a global variable to the test class. After adding this variable and referencing it in one of the test methods, I can no longer "Play" the test. Clicking Play does nothing. Run to step does nothing. I receive no error messages. At one point, I was unable to access the Class/Code view window for the test. I had to copy all the steps into a new test which let see the code again. Something odd seems to be happening here.

    Here's the code. I cut a portion out and removed some comments.





    namespace TestProject1
        public class WebTest : BaseWebAiiTest
            #region [ Dynamic Pages Reference ]
            private Pages _pages;
            public string g_sRandomUserName = "AutomationUser";
            public Pages Pages
                    if (_pages == null)
                        _pages = new Pages(Manager.Current);
                    return _pages;
            // Add your test methods here...
            [CodedStep(@"Enter text '" + g_sRandomUserName + "' in 'MainContentTxtUsernameText'")]
            public void WebTest_CodedStep()
                // Enter text 'AutomationUser' in 'MainContentTxtUsernameText'
                Actions.SetText(Pages.UserAdministrator.MainContentTxtUsernameText, g_sRandomUserName);

    You're getting a compile error. If you look in the Application log you would see this:

    What you're trying to do with the CodedStep attribute is not legal. The description of the coded step can only be static text. Variables are not permitted as you're attempting to do.
