In ACCELQ's Recorder, the context menu provides a suite of options to enhance your test automation development experience. This menu appears when you right-click on an element in the Recorder, or in a View — be it a web or mobile application View.
Command and Action Selection
Commands: Predefined functions provided by ACCELQ to interact with elements or perform checks on elements. Commands facilitate unit-level automation steps on UI screens.
Actions: Actions are created locally in your Project and reusable in multiple Scenarios. These Actions are created by combining a set of Command statements encapsulating application-specific functionality such as Login to QBank, Verify home page, etc. Reusing Actions is efficient, promoting modular automation practices.
Use the search functionality to swiftly filter across the Actions and Commands tabs based on your requirements.
Note: Live Add-Ons or cross-project sharing features could provide additional pre-built Actions from external sources or add-ons.
ACCELQ's smart detection recommends the most relevant pre-existing Actions related to the element on which you've right-clicked. As the number of Scenarios within a project increases, so does the accumulation of Actions. This predictive feature conveniently prioritizes the most pertinent Actions, promoting the reuse of existing Actions to prevent the redundant development of logic with Commands, thereby streamlining the automation process.
