Thinking Out Loud
25 November 2014

Those of you who've been waiting to see TestCafe's new Test Recorder don't have to wait much longer...We've released Beta 1 and are looking forward to releasing this product next month.

If you're not familiar with TestCafe, take a moment to review the following page - if you've used TestCafe in the past, here are a few of the things we expect to ship shortly.

Redesigned Test Recorder

Our new Test Recorder will ship with the following new capabilities:

  • Add and edit assertions - TestCafe allows you to add assertions to check whether an arbitrary expression resolves to true or false.

HTML 5 Web Testing - Add assertions

  • Delete test steps - TestCafe allows you to delete individual steps or a group of steps.

HTML 5 Web Testing - Modify a Recorded Test Step

  • Reorder test steps - To swap steps within the list, drag the step and then drop it in the required position.
  • Modify steps without leaving the recorder - You can review and modify each step at any time while a test is recording.

HTML 5 Web Testing - Modify Test Script

  • Save a test without leaving the recorder.
  • Play back a test - TestCafe can play back all recorded steps in the order they were recorded for a specific web page within the same browser window without leaving the recorder.
  • A redesigned user experience with across-the-board improvements in usability.

In addition to the redesigned TestCafe Test Recorder, v14.2 will include following enhancements.

File Upload Support

  • Single step file upload recording
  • Cross-browser support, including mobile browsers
  • Support for multi-file uploads

Test Failure on JS Errors

If a JavaScript error occurs on a web page, tests will be marked as failed within the "results" tab of the Control Panel UI. TestCafe will also display detailed information on the JS error.
