Links within Test Cases


Sometimes in test cases we want to use a link to reference some further information. Unfortunately when you are running the test case, if you click on the link it opens it in the same window, and you lose all your test results. Very frustrating, and has been experienced by several of my team. I am looking for a way to force the link to open in a new window. Normally I’d just use a target="_blank" in my html, but I understand that it isn’t possible to use html within the test case. Is there any other way of doing it?



I have the same problem. It is very frustrating to lose all the test results.
