Forcing a Transmit

If there is no "current module," or if a transmit action (button) is not yet available in the application, you can force a transmission (or transmit). Forcing a transmit sends transmissions from the test client to server, checks definitions, downloads them from the server to the test client, runs main fetches. Force a transmit any time you must emulate a transmit action.

Context

Most transmits do not autostart or autofinish, so you need to force it. For some operations, such as changing platforms or languages, the transmit is automatic, so you need not force it.
