The 'Run' button


#1

I can't seem to find or set the Run button on Ruby, does anyone know where I can find the settings for it?


#2

Does that not let you pass the exercise by clicking save and submit?

I'm confused as to what you want from this?


#3

It's the second time it's asked me to press the Run button, after which I guess it displays something on the black screen on the right. But I can't seem to find the so called Run button anywhere.
Thanks.


#4

You were right,it seems as the Run button is the Save & Submit button.
Thanks again.

Sure, you pass the exercise by clicking "Save and submit," but if the exercise mentions that you need to click a "Run" button, then there really should be a "Run" button to click. This causes confusion because you expect the button where none exists; moreover, you expect said non-existent button to deliver results on the screen and not just take you to the next page. This is a bug and it should be fixed.

This is not a bug. Bugs are unintended behavior. It might be bad engineering, but it's not a bug.

After you all have done a couple exercises, you'll get used to that the Save & Submit Code button runs your code.

And in case any of you are interested and haven't noticed, the newer courses do use a button that says "Run" instead :)

Pardon me, but it is a bug. Since the instructions tell you to press Run, and there is no Run button to be found, it is a bug. A minor bug, but still. Like you said, bugs are unintended behavior. The intended behavior was to press Run, and not "Save and submit".
I guess that is why developers don't like QAs. :smirk:
