Using System Keywords - New UI

Keywords offer a set of predefined commands for creating test cases for any application. With keywords, you can easily write test steps with input and output data without the need for complex coding.  

How to use Keywords?

Keywords are used by calling them in a test step and adding the input and expected output data values. If you want to capture the dynamic objects, you can also add properties of the object in the test object column. 

Let's understand this with an example of using the HandleExpectedPopup keyword. This keyword handles expected pop-ups occurring during the execution using the TAB and ENTER keys combination. It takes WindowTitle, Number Of Tabs, and WaitTime as input parameters. 

Let's go through the steps to use this keyword in a test step.

1. Add a new step in your test case by clicking the + icon at the top. Search the keyword named HandleExpectedPopup and click on the search result to add it to the new test step.


2. Click the three dots icon on the step and select Set input data option to open the Edit data of step page on the right.

3. Add the input data in the Edit data of step page as shown. For example, here we have added the input data to handle an unexpected tab named Select your city.  Once done, close the window by clicking the close icon at the top-right corner.

4. You can see the input data for the keyword added to your step.

Note: We have illustrated the requirement of the Test Object, Input Data, and corresponding Output data values in the tables following this image. These values are filled as per the requirement of the keyword used in the test case as shown in the image below. We have given similar tables for each keyword in the list of system keywords article.
