TestCafe v15.1 - Test Results View & Usability Enhancements (Coming soon)

19 May 2015

If you been following this blog, you already know that we have a number of superb features shipping inside TestCafe v15.1. In this post, I'll describe our newly redesigned test results view and show you how analyzing web test results has never been easier.

As you can see in the image below, individual test results are now arranged in a grid view - making things much clearer so you can get the answers you need quickly.

Automated Web Testing - Test Result Grid View
 
Each item displayed within the grid offers you insights into the state of your web app and the results of a test run. You can click the test or fixture name to navigate to the respective test or fixture in the Projects tab.

Failed test records are expandable, so you can view details related to failed assertions or errors. If an assertion fails, the grid view includes the assertion code line, and the difference between actual and expected values.

If there is an error, information about its cause and the failed test step is displayed.

The grid view retains all the features you would typically expect from a grid widget. You can sort records against a specific column by clicking its header.

You can also drag a column header and drop it onto the grouping area to group records and thus improve test result readability.

And finally, the search box in the top right corner allows you to filter records by a specific keyword without hassles.
