Hello guys i have ended up with learning of rollup command by the link i mentioned above as it is used to combine the step we often use to test (so by creating an .js we can insert our commands that are been tested often and regular for every test case). for reference

the below code is what i have done to my .js file and included and it showed me in the selenium IDE.


logincommands log in to

preconditions: postconditions:

current rollup expands to: open | sendKeys | userName | xxx sendKeys | password | xxx clickAndWait | css=font:btn.contains("xxx")

rollup button

so for the rollup button, once you save an rollup.js it is enabled for the tests cases i.e you can press this button to include the rollup in that particular test case.
