Creating Visual Tests Manually
Recording tests is the easiest and fastest way to automate visual testing. This said, creating tests manually might seem like a better option in some rare cases. Cases like these mostly come down to testing a UI in the early stages of development.
Here’s how you can do it. Go to the project menu and click ‘Create test manually’. This will trigger a popup window asking for test name and base URL. Specify both parameters, click ‘Create’, and the starter version of your test is ready.
In the manual mode, Screenster automatically creates two test steps: Open URL and Close browser. You can expand your test by adding new steps. To add a new step, click the ‘+’ icon.
Due to the fact that you’re not recording anything, Screenster will only capture the UI baseline after you’ve created and run your test. For this reason, the screenshot panel will remain empty throughout the process of manual test creation.
