<h1>Control Panel</h1>
<p></p>
<p>Control panel is automatically opened when recording starts and provides a quick access to main test case properties. When recording is in progress, its <span class="uiElement"> <img src="https://www.eclipse.org/rcptt/shared/img/ui-script.gif"></img> Script</span>
tab immediately updates with recorded actions.</p>
<p>There are two ways to start recording and open Control Panel:</p>
<ul>
<li>Use <span class="uiElement"> <img src="https://www.eclipse.org/rcptt/shared/img/ui-record.gif"></img> Record</span>
button in <a href="https://www.eclipse.org/rcptt/documentation/userguide/testeditor">Test Case Editor</a>.</li>
<li>Use <span class="uiElement"> <img src="https://www.eclipse.org/rcptt/shared/img/ui-snippet.png"></img> Record a Snippet</span>
button on RCPTT main toolbar. This mode is convenient for quick experiments or recording short snippets which can be pasted to other test cases later. As well it is possible to save recorded script as a new test case.</li>
</ul>
<p>See Control Panel screenshot below for more information.
<p>Move a mouse over highlighted areas on a screenshot below to get a documentation regarding UI elements</p>

<div class="ann-overlay" style="left:0px;;">
<h5>Return to IDE button</h5>
<p>Closes control panel and restores main RCPTT IDE window. If recording is in progress, it is automatically stopped. If test case is not saved, prompts for a save.</p>

button), prompts for a test case location.</p>

<h5>Mode buttons</h5>
<p>When recording is in progress, these buttons allow to switch between two modes:
<ul>
<li> <span class="uiElement"> <img src="https://www.eclipse.org/rcptt/shared/img/ui-capture-mode.gif"></img> Capture Mode</span>
&ndash; all user actions in AUT are recorded in a script. This is a default mode when recording starts.</li>
<li> <span class="uiElement"> <img src="https://www.eclipse.org/rcptt/shared/img/ui-assert-mode.gif"></img> Assertion Mode</span>
&ndash; this mode allows to select any widget inside AUT to add <a href="https://www.eclipse.org/rcptt/documentation/userguide/assertions/">assertions</a> for it's properties.
