How is it done, in eValid's system, to rerun a test in case it FAILs the first time?
Please be explicit.
Fair question BStader.
The feature in eValid that allows you to intercept miss-behaving tests is the ON<flag> command.
What this command does is set up an alternative script that takes over when various conditions occur.
You have flags for Alarm, Timeout, Error, and Warning.
Basically, you set up a condition in your script, e.g. OnErrorGoSript <name>, where <name> is a "recovery script" and once this command is executed after that point if any ERROR occurs, then control is interrupted and transferred to the script <name>.
OK, now you've intercept the error...the most common thing to put in the recovery script is an Email command that sends a specific message to a particular email account.
So there you have all the parts:
The ability to intercept playback due to an anomaly, and the ability to notify someone (your user, perhaps) when a problem has been detected.
