General Test

1. Basics

testPoint is designed as a resident tool which works on background. Because of this there are some specifics in the application's User Interface.
Missing UI elements:
  • The app icon in the Dock.
    In fact such an icon can duplicate testPoint icon in the menu extras (aka menu bar extras). However if there isn't free screen space for an icon inside the menu extras, there's not free space for a dock icon too. Finally the icon in the menu extras was preferred because of its smaller size.
  • The application menu in menu bar.
    This menu relates to the active application. However testPoint is especially designed to stay resident while other apps are active. Because of this the testPoint icon inside menu extras is preferred.
Available UI elements:
  • testPoint application icon in Applications folder.
    By default testPoint will be installed inside the Applications folder. Open the Applications and find out the testPoint application icon.
  • testPoint application icon in Launchpad.
    The same icon can be found in Launchpad too. Open the Launchpad and type "testPoint" in search field.
  • testPoint icon in menu bar extras.
    This icon differs from testPoint application icon. It's small and simplified. Click on it to open the testPoint menu.
  • testPoint menu in menu bar extras.
    It's a drop-down menu revealed after a click on testPoint icon. This menu replaces the common application menu in menu bar.
  • testPoint panel (aka Preferences panel and Test center).
    This panel is a common application panel with some views. All views are organized in a tab control - there are About box, General settings, Test center, Test settings and Info views.
