The Inspector panel, found on the right side of Cycle, uses a tabbed interface to show the Step Assistant (when editing a Feature), Settings and Output.

Step Assistant tab

The Step Assistant tab is designed to give additional information about the use case, parameters, and syntax of the highlighted step. In the example below, the Step Assistant is showing information about the Step: I assign "<VALUE>" to variable "<VARIABLE_NAME>".

Settings tab

The Settings tab of the Inspector panel contains settings that are specific to the type of file open in the Cycle Editor. Below are examples of the Settings tab for each type of test. Settings configured here will override any of the same settings configured under Edit > Preferences.

In general, the Settings tab contains the subsections:

  • Failure Handling - What Cycle should do if a Step fails.
  • Execution - What type of reports to enable (Email or Web), and how much time to pause between Steps.
  • Environment - Defines the Resource Directory and specific Tags to be executed. If the Feature needs to point to a Resource Directory other than the default identified in Edit > Preferences, this is where that would be defined.
