This topic describes how to use the Explorer panel to organize and manage test files.
You can watch the Organizing Test Files video.
You can store your tests in any directory on your computer.
To open a test directory in TestCafe Studio, do one of the following:
Recorded tests are tests you record visually or compose from test actions. These tests are stored in
*.testcafe files. TestCafe Studio automatically creates a new
*.testcafe file when you start recording a test for a new tested page.
.testcafe file can contain one or more recorded tests that are organized by fixture. The Explorer panel displays these tests as the
.testcafe file's children. The fixture's name is shown above the test list.
See Record Tests for instructions on how to record tests.
A test script file can contain several tests that are organized by fixture. The Explorer panel displays these tests as the file's children. Fixture names are shown above the test list.
You can also convert recorded test files to test script files.
TestCafe Studio also allows you to use tests created in earlier TestCafe versions (
.test.js files). You can add these files to a test directory and view/modify/run the tests in TestCafe Studio.
