When running a script I can not go to the SUT and perform any actions on the SUT. Other than creating a second VNC connection, Is there anyway to pause the script and ask the operator to go to the SUT and do something. Rather than exiting the script if something goes wrong I would like the operator to do something and then continue with the script.
You can manually pause the script by using the Run->Pause Script menu. You can programmatically pause the script with the PauseScript command.
While the script is paused you can interact with the SUT through the viewer window. You might couple that with an answer command like so:
answer "Please perform the manual step now. Continue the script when ready." pausescript put "continuing…"
Great that is a good suggestion, I also found ask , answer accept a time out parameter.
