Trace Statements

Tracepoints are set in the code editor. Like breakpoints, they are placed on a line of code. When that line of code executes, the Execution Analyzer evaluates and prints the statement either to the Debugger output window or to file, if this has been configured in the Analyzer script.

How to:

Testpoint Management

Specifying Tracepoints:

Using the example in the image above, we could output the number of people getting off a train by using the following statement:

There were @Passengers before @PeopleOFF got off the train

To print a variable, precede the variable name with the @ token. If a variable represents a string you should precede the variable with a $ token.
