How to: Add Comments to a Web Test

Comments are helpful for creating effective Web tests. Comments should be used to make notes about what logical action is occurring at each point in the Web test, especially in Web tests that have many requests. When you modify a Web test in the Web Test Editor, comments can help identify the purpose of each request. Additionally, comments are valuable for making notes about validation and extraction rules that should be added to specific requests.

Comments will appear in the Web Test Editor as nodes in the request tree. After they are created, comments can be moved to a different location in the request tree by dragging them with the mouse. You can also right-click a comment and use the shortcut menu to cut, copy, paste, and delete comments.

To add comments while recording a Web test

  1. In the Web Test Recorder, click the Add a comment button on the Web Test Recorder toolbar.

    The Comment dialog box will appear.

  2. Type a comment and then click OK.

    The comment is added to the Web Test Recorder as a node in the request tree.
