You can add a text checkpoint while recording a test or component in all environments. You can also add a text checkpoint on a web page or frame from the Active Screen while editing your test or component.

To add a text checkpoint while recording:

  1. Display the page, window, or screen containing the text you want to check.

  2. Choose Insert > Checkpoint > Text Checkpoint, or click the Insert Checkpoint button and choose Text Checkpoint. The QuickTest window is minimized and the mouse pointer turns into a pointing hand.
