FitNesse pages can have attributes that alter the way the pages are displayed, and how they behave. These can be enabled or disabled for a page by hitting the Properties button. The properties are: * '''Edit''': When set, this property causes the '''Edit''' button to be displayed. This is a poor man's read-only switch. If you clear this checkbox then users will not have a convenient way to edit the page. Of course they can always edit it by typing the ''page?edit'' URL -- but we don't have to tell them how to do that, do we? * '''Search''': This property enables or disables the '''Search''' button. There's no real good reason to disable this button, but we put the ability in just for symmetry. * '''Test''': This property instructs ''!-FitNesse-!'' to treat the page as a fitnesse test page: * It enables the '''Test''' button, which submits the page to Fit to process all of the page's test tables. * Pages with the Test property enabled will have the '''!-SetUp-!''' and '''!-TearDown-!''' text applied to them. See SetUpAndTearDownPages. * !-SetUp-! will be prepended to the page, just after the !-PageHeader-! (if any). * !-TearDown-! will be appended to the page, just before the !-PageFooter-! page (if any). * Pages with this property will be included in ''test suite runs''. * '''Suite''': Pages with this property are test suites. All sub pages are considered part of the suite. Any sub page with the '''Test''' property set is considered a test within the suite. * The '''Test Suite''' button is enabled by this property. * A ''test suite run'' is activated by hitting the '''Test Suite''' button. All tests within the suite are run and their results reported. * '''Versions''': Enables the '''Versions''' button. Hitting this button brings up a list of old versions of the page. If this property is not set, then the button will not be displayed, but versions will still be tracked. * '''Properties''': Enables the '''Properties''' button. Hitting this button brings up a pages that allows you to edit all page properties mentioned here. If you disable this property users will not have a convenient way to change the properties of a page. (Of course they can always use the ''page?properties'' URL.) !3 Implicit Page Attributes * Pages that begin with '''"Test"''' will automatically have the '''Test''' property set. * Pages that begin with '''"Suite"''' will automatically have the '''Suite''' property set. * Once these pages are created, you can set or clear these properties as usual.
