This window lets you control continuous testing.


Status Bar and Progress Bar

The progress bar and the status bar under the toolbar display the current progress. On the status bar, you can see the total number of tests in the session as well as number of tests in different states. By default, tests in all states are shown, but you can change it by clicking on the corresponding icons. You can also Ctrl-click several icons to display tests in several different states.
