Selenium Core Execution Modes
- Run the Selected Test
- Run All Tests
Overview Of Execution Modes
- Run All Tests: Run every test in the test suite.
- Run Selected Test: Click on one test in the test suite, then click here to run just that one test.
- Pause/Continue: While a test is running, press the Pause button to temporarily stop running commands. After you press Pause, you can press Continue to resume the test.
- Step: Click on a test in the test suite, then click on just one line of the test to set a "breakpoint." When the Test Runner reaches a breakpoint, it will automatically pause execution on that line. You may then press the Step button to run the next line of the test and pause again. You can also click on a breakpoint line to remove the breakpoint.
