Special actions

In your functional tests on mobile terminals you will sometimes need to automate atypical actions particularly related to the OS.

For this we have integrated the following native functions:

  • Back : back on the last action
  • Home : displays the "desktop" of the mobile terminal
  • Menu : access to the functions of the mobile terminal office
  • Search : launches a google search on the mobile terminal
  • Delete : delete the last character entered
  • App : displays the list of recently launched applications on the mobile terminal

To add these actions, proceed as follows:

  • Select "Application root"
  • Select "System button"
  • Select the correct system action for your test
