Limitations of 'Expressions' functional (debug mode)

I’ve encountered with the following limitations when using Katalon Studio:

  • no auto-suggestions
  • no import
  • only some simple expressions are working

For example, I cannot evaluate the following expression:

WebUI.verifyElementNotPresent(testObject, 1, FailureHandling.OPTIONAL)
nor this one:
com.kms.katalon.core.webui.keyword.WebUiBuiltInKeywords.verifyElementNotPresent(testObject, 1, FailureHandling.OPTIONAL)

although the code processing has stopped on the breakpoint on the line which contains exactly that expression.

I’ve used to work with IDEA, and its ‘Evaluate Expression’ lack everything mentioned above.

Please tell me that I’m wrong and all these things work fine.


Would you/team please provide any guidance on this?.. we have run into some roadblocks using Katalon.

Sorry, this is the first time I’ve seen this discussion topic.

Press keys Ctrl-Space - the auto-suggest should popup.

I don’t understand.

When you run code and it doesn’t work, we need to see all the relevant information surrounding the problem. Please follow this advice:
