This dialog allows editing of the actions in a task, and various properties of the task.
If a particular action is a setting, that will be indicated on the right-hand side of the action.
If an action has had a condition set for it, the condition is shown with a red or green bar next to it; green indicates that the condition is currently met (the action will execute), red indicates the opposite. Of course, when the task is executed it could be that it changes things so that the condition is then met.
If an action is within an
If / End If block it is displayed
indented with a red or green margin. The colours have the same significance
as for individual action conditions described above.
If an action is within a For loop it
is displayed indented with a grey margin. If the
action has a condition on it which is not met, the margin will be red
(because the actions in the loop will never execute, like an
If / End If block).
Run the task.
The Play button will run the task right through till the end, the Step button will run a single task each time it's pressed.
During tasting, the current action is shown with an arrow and the next task with a faded arrow.
The success of each action is shown when it finishes with a green (action OK) or red (action failed) circle.
Tasks run via the Play or Step button have priority 10.
Long-click the Play or Test button to manually set the priority of the task when it runs during the test. Please be aware that setting a lower priority can result in interference from other tasks running which are e.g. triggered by profiles.
Tip: pressing the Step button while a task is playing will cause the task to switch to stepping mode when the current action finishes.
