Clipboard contents created from activity unit tests

When you test activities with the Run Rule feature, the system might create one or more clipboard pages, including copies of the named pages that you specified in the Run dialog box. The system retains these pages when you close the dialog box; properties on these pages remain available for you to use when you perform subsequent testing of this or other rules with the Run Rule feature.

If the activity returns results to a parameter marked as Out on the Parameter tab of the activity, you cannot see the results in the Clipboard. Out parameters reside on the parameter page of the activity, which you can view only with the Tracer tool. To simplify testing, you can modify the activity temporarily to store an Out parameter value in a property that is visible on a clipboard page. Delete the temporary step when you finish testing.
