    Don't get me wrong, please...

    My guess is that you are working as a test engineer. What are your expectations when you come to your developers and say them something like that: "Guys, I started to test your application but my tests fail. Could you help me with why my tests are failing" ?


    Same is here. No oracles are here. It really helps if you let at least to know what was recorded. What was the failure? What was in the Details pane of test log? What corrections you did to make test to pass? Did you use NameMapping during recording? How problematic objects were namemapped? Screenshots?


    As for checkpoints and Indicator object - TestComplete provides really fantastic documentation that is definitely worth careful reading for details. Read it and ask then what was not clear from the documentation.
