Description Dmitry Kudrenko 2007-10-29 10:54:08 UTC
TestAction duration field supports only numeric values.
Seems it is impossible to specify dynamic pause using Test Action.

It is possible to put a Timer to TestAction element, but I think it will be 
great to allow variables/parameters in this field.

Yes, that's because the field is converted to an integer before it is stored 
in the test plan. But I agree, this is an unnecessary restriction.

The field should be made bigger to allow for function calls.

And the label should make clear that the value is in milliseconds.
