This page provides a general description of the Eyes Test Manager GUI and it's main elements. You will find that many of the pages and editors have a common look and feel, this page summarizes the basic controls and tools that you will find on many of the pages.
This control is used to navigate between the main pages of the test manager, and shows the name of the current page. See The page navigator for more information.
You will find this control on pages that show information that is branch specific. The branch selector is used to select and display the current branch. When you change the current branch, it will apply to all pages that have a branch navigator. See Selecting a branch on a page for more information.
You can sort the rows of the table by any column. When your cursor is positioned over a column title an or icon is displayed. Click on the icon and the column is sorted in ascending or descending order. Click again, and the column is sorted in the opposite direction. The appropriate icon is displayed next to the column header that determines the current sorting order.
Many pages that display information allow you to filter the data so that you can focus on the data that meets criteria you specify. On these pages, clicking the button will allow you to select from multiple criteria, where each criteria may have one or more options. An item will be displayed by the filter if, for every criterion that has one or more option selected, that item matches one of those options.
The set of criteria that you can choose from depends on the page.
Pages that display information often provide a "group by" control. This allows you to organize the information hierarchically, based on various criteria. For example, you can show test results grouped by the browser, and within each browser, they can be further grouped by operating system. Clicking the icon opens a dialog with all the criteria defined for that page, after you click a criteria the data will be grouped by that criteria. Clicking on the + again, will allow you to select different criteria and then the data will be displayed hierarchically, the top level will be first criteria you chose, and the next level will be the second criteria you chose. You can have as many layers as there are criteria.
This button appears on various pages where the information displayed may become out of date as test runs in the background, and more information, such as test results, become available. The button is animated when more data is available. When you click on it, the screen will be updated with the latest information available.
On pages that display rows of data, this button allows you to select or deselect all the visible rows. Click on the checkbox to toggle the current state, click on the triangle menu icon to choose between selecting all of the visible items or none of them.
For example, on many pages this feature can be used together with a Delete selected itemsbutton (see below) to delete the selected rows.
Usually the items being selected also have a checkbox and you can use that to fine tune which items are selected.
On many pages you can select items and then click on this button to delete them. Depending on the page you may, or may not get a warning dialog.
