Error description

  • A message field can have action types of Increment and
    Decrement.  This has an Initial Value and Step Value.
    
    When these actions are used the value is not remembered when the
    stub processes the next input.  The output message field is
    again takes the starting Initial Value with the Step value added
    or subtracted.
    
    Example A:
    
    The Increment action is used and Initial Value = 1 with Step
    Value of 2.
    Every time the stub sends the message field it contains 1 (the
    initial value)
    
    Example B:
    
    The Increment action is used and Initial Value = %%tag1%% with
    Step Value of %%tag2%%.
    Every time the stub sends the message field it contains %%tag1%%
    + %%tag2%%
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a stub with an output message.
    2. Edit an integer field in the output message.
    3. Click the Value tab.
    4. Select Action Type Increment.
    5. Enter values for Initial Value and Step Value.
    6. Run the stub
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The message field should increment correctly and retain the
    field value between iterations of the stub.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    The stub always returns the same value in the message field.
