Creating and using a recovery scenario

UFT also enables us to define a specific behavior to handle a wide array of situations in advance. For example, instead of having to check our code for the existence of an unhandled pop-up dialog that may interfere with the normal flow of our test, we can use a recovery scenario to instruct UFT what to do if such is found. For example, we may tell UFT to close the dialog and try to rerun the step that failed due to the existence of the dialog. Another option, would be to tell UFT to exit the current Action or test iteration (in such cases, we must ensure that the test or Action begins in the proper context, that is, with the initial set of conditions).
