Description Noel O'Brien 2009-03-26 07:47:50 UTC
Hi,

I think it would be very convenient to add the ability to convert test elements from one type to another, esp. for controllers, listeners and HTTP samplers.

e.g. I've got a simple controller I want to change it to an If controller. At the moment I need to either add the if controller as a child or parent, move the child elements of the simple controller to the if controller and then remove the simpler controller. It would be much more convenient to add e.g. a "Convert to.." context menu option, sampler to the "Add Parent" context menu option. 

Regards,
Noel

It's easy enough to add a new sampler and delete the old one.

However, replacing a Controller with many children is not as easy.
