Highlight bar not showing up in first Action

The highlight bar does not show up sometimes when running the scripts, these seems to be only happening in our Action 1. The automation will run fine but you can never see what line is being executed because nothing gets highlighted. Is there a setting somewhere that makes it not show up or is it something else?

Re: Highlight bar not showing up in first Action

Hi,

You might try checking that the test has not been configured to run in Fast Mode in: 

UFT > Tools > Options > GUI Testing > Test Runs > Run mode > Select Normal.


Did it make any difference?

Re: Highlight bar not showing up in first Action

So i attached a screenshot of the settings we have for it and it is in Normal mode, but it mostly happens in Action 1 but some of my team say that they notice the execution marker does not show up from time to time when they are running the automation.

Re: Highlight bar not showing up in first Action

So how i got it to happen is by opening UTF and running the first Action and the Highligh Bar was showing up, tested it out a few times and it kept showing up. So i then closed down UFT and reopened it and opened the same project and ran from the same line and then the Highlight Bar was not showing up.

Re: Highlight bar not showing up in first Action

Thank you very much for the screenshots Wallace,

 

     If you set a breakpoint in line 20 for example, the test stops? Are you able to see the bar?

     You mention this happen in Action 1, for all the scripts or just some specific tests?

     If you try running steps stored locally behavior persists?

 

Regards.
