Parameterizing Property Checkpoints in keyword test

In "Keyword test" i want to use a parameter for a "Property Checkpoint". Here you can find the instructions: https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/testing-with/checkpoints/property/parameterizing.htm... (Step 2.)

 

According to the documentation it should work.

 

But I don't get an [...]-option under "Values". When I double click on the cell, only the "Edit Property Checkpoint" window opens, which does not give me the possibility to set a parameter, only a hard-coded value.

Is there a solution to this?

You need to click in the field, once... single click... to select the field.  Then the button will show.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Re: Parameterizing Property Checkpoints in keyword test

yup, anywhere within that value field in that row, give it a single click and wait a second! you should see the ellipses appear at the far right side of the value column, and once you click on those three dots, you should gain access to the operation parameters. You can do this for any other operation other than a property checkpoint in order to parameterize that step as well.

Re: Parameterizing Property Checkpoints in keyword test

Once you create the checkpoint through the wizard as you did, you need to go back and re-edit the property checkpoint operation in your keyword test, specifically, click on the "..." button that is available in the Values field in your keyword editor

Thank you for your answer. But as I have already written:

 

"But I don't get an [...]-option under "Values"."
