Setting Property Paths

Properties, property paths, and In Situ Substitution Expressions (ISSEs) are presented as blue rounded boxes throughout CloudTest. They are displayed as “bubbles” also in the lower panel. There is a new, lower-panel Expert button that allows users to expand the bubble to toggle between full text and bubble view). Simply double-click or hover (single-click) to inspect or edit their data and info. Double-click any property box to open it in its appropriate editor.

Placed properties appear as rounded blue boxes throughout the CloudTest user interface making them easier to find later. For example, the Clip Editor, List View, Parameter 2 column shown right has a property, username , placed into its Query String.

Property boxes also appear where Property entry fields exist, such as in expanded If-Then-Else or Switch containers shown in the Clip Editor List or Icon View.

Property boxes are also displayed in the Composition Editor whenever a property field or value is in display. For example, whenever a Repeat By Property repeat method is specified for either a track or clip repeat. When Repeat By Property is first selected from the Repeat Method drop-down, it will display [not specified] until its value is specified via the Property Chooser.

For more complex ISSEs, user-friendly display means hiding the underlying ISSE syntax in favor of a clickable, and more readable format as shown in the Group 1 container below, where a user-friendly ISSE is deployed.

A closer view shows that the user-friendly version of this expression has the same rounded-blue border as the other items above.

To inspect the full expression syntax for any user-friendly ISSE, double click to inspect it in the lower panel. Note that the Locator field on the right shows the concatenated expression.

To show the full ISSE, toggle the Expert button to the right of the field where the ISSE has been entered.
