Test Results

View and filter test results in the Test Results view.

{Visual display in the Test Results view}

Qt Test Output

The Test Results view shows Qt and Qt Quick test results in XML format and other test results in plain text format.

XML can be parsed more easily and reliably than plain text. However, if a Qt or Qt Quick test crashes, it might not produce complete XML code that can be parsed, which might lead to information loss. You might see the lost information when viewing the results as plain text.

To view the results of Qt and Qt Quick tests as plain text, go to Preferences > Testing > Qt Test and then clear Use XML output. Then select (Switch Between Visual and Text Display) in Test Results to switch to the text display.
