I tried looking up info related to this property but was unable to find anything very useful about it. Is this field populated by external means or should I be able to save xml data to this value by adding data to the text field?  Adding data(formated or not) does not appear to be saved when saving a test.
I'm interested in using this field for something along the lines of comments for particular elements for lack of a better feature.

To be clear, I'm referring to XmlBlob property when you click on an element in a test studio test.

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

The XmlBlob property is meant for internal use only. It's not wired to anything in the UI. It's actually a bug that it's displayed at all. I'm afraid we don't have a comment or description property for individual elements. We do have a Comment test step you can use if you like. Are you really wanting to store XML metadata, or do you simply want a user editable description field stored as a simple string?

Thanks for the clarification on the field.  I'm looking for an editable description field(simple string) for the element.  This is something that we've been discussing in our (QA)group as something quite useful to help keep things organized and clear for all using the large set of elements we've created. Changing the name of an element is only so useful at times.

The xmlBlob was something that looked like it would be useful for a temp solution.
