Getting the most from TestLink

Postby Aznar » Fri Jun 13, 2008 1:09 pm

Hi All,

The idea with this topic is to exchange hints on how to get the most from TestLink. Things like test case formatting and organization, etc.

I start with something I didn't manage to do:
When editing test cases, how to get the steps and the expected results aligned using tables in both sides.
I mean I didn't manage to get vertically aligned cells between the two fields: steps and expected results (see attached file).

There is several feature requests for the topic. The problem is that development team have not agreement about architecture for this feature. So we postponed implementation. Of course we still count to develop it.

a) use ordered list for steps (and results)
b) do not use expected results field and create a table with both into steps

A handy trick is to use <shift><enter> in the editor for line feeds. In normal text entry this will result in a single line feed instead of a paragraph break.
And in lists it will result in an indented line feed without the line number of bullet.

I use <shift><enter> to keep the numbers aligned in my ordered lists for my steps and results, if for example, my steps description is long and wraps to a second line I add a blank line to that step number on my results. You will probably have to add a couple spaces to the line.

It takes a little more back and forth editing to get it right but it does make it easier to read. . . . until you resize your browser window.

Thanks for the workarounds provided. I´ve tried both and expect to choose one of them.
