This has become a riddle that must be solved. I have all but resigned myself to the fact that some areas of our app will need to be manually tested (we are in the process of acquiring functional tools but not in the short term) so I would like to know how this is handled.
Any assistance is most appreciated.
Love the forum, a lot of good info flying around in here!
Wrong forum? Those are WinRunner commands. LoadRunner doesn't care about client side scripts if they don't make requests to the web servers.

BAD idea! You've just ruled out ALL the GUI testing.

It is basically invisible from the LR standpoint
Peter, We are attempting to exercise some areas of our application for performance metrics, and this situation presented itself. Just because I acknowledge that a functional test tool will have little issue with this does not imply that I was doing pure functional testing. The manual testing reference meant that this area may not be a candidate for our performance testing. I guess I wasn't clear in my message. My apologies. I am well aware of the uses of Loadrunner, Winrunner, and QTP.
Thank you for your feedback, anybody have any real world suggestions?
*sheepishly checks the loadrunner manual*
Ah yes... win_type and win_mouse_click are Baan functions. I can't find the other two, maybe they're for WinRunner GUI users- they sure sound like winrunner functions, and I assumed you were talking about WinRunner since you mentioned coordinates and object names.
I've never used Baan before, but I'm guessing that playing with the GUI causes some network activity. In a web app this isn't the case, so you're free to close the popup manually when recording and you can ignore it at playback. It might pop up in the run time viewer but client side scripts don't get executed when running from the controller - only when you render the HTML to the screen inside a web browser window.
Hope this helps
