Checkpoints in Automation Testing

In the last two articles, we saw how to create keyword tests and script tests in TestComplete. In this article, we will learn the checkpoints available in TestComplete. First, what is a checkpoint? A checkpoint is an automated comparison that you can have within an automated test. When the test is run, the checkpoint compares the value stored in the test (i.e. the baseline value) with the actual value and reports success or failure depending on the comparison. A single checkpoint replaces a number of test steps or script statements that perform the same comparison. There are more than 10 checkpoints available in TestComplete. Let us visit them one by one.
