FitNesse pages can have attributes that alter the way the pages are displayed, and how they behave. These can be enabled or disabled for a page by hitting the Properties button.
The properties are:
The properties are:
- Edit: When set, this property causes the Edit button to be displayed. This is a poor man's read-only switch. If you clear this checkbox then users will not have a convenient way to edit the page. Of course they can always edit it by typing the page?edit URL -- but we don't have to tell them how to do that, do we?
- Search: This property enables or disables the Search button. There's no real good reason to disable this button, but we put the ability in just for symmetry.
- Test: This property instructs FitNesse to treat the page as a fitnesse test page:
- It enables the Test button, which submits the page to Fit to process all of the page's test tables.
- Pages with the Test property enabled will have the SetUp and TearDown text applied to them. See <UserGuide.SpecialPages.
- SetUp will be prepended to the page, just after the PageHeader (if any).
- TearDown will be appended to the page, just before the PageFooter page (if any).
- Pages with this property will be included in test suite runs.
- Suite: Pages with this property are test suites. All sub pages are considered part of the suite. Any sub page with the Test property set is considered a test within the suite.
- The Test Suite button is enabled by this property.
- A test suite run is activated by hitting the Test Suite button. All tests within the suite are run and their results reported.
- Versions: Enables the Versions button. Hitting this button brings up a list of old versions of the page. If this property is not set, then the button will not be displayed, but versions will still be tracked.
- Properties: Enables the Properties button. Hitting this button brings up a pages that allows you to edit all page properties mentioned here. If you disable this property users will not have a convenient way to change the properties of a page. (Of course they can always use the page?properties URL.)
Implicit Page Attributes
- Pages that begin or end with "Test" or "Example" will automatically have the Test property set.
