Browser window active process
We are trying out WinRunner for a web application. In our application we have a known bug that after clicking the OK button you go to another page which successfully downloads but there remains some kind of process active in the browser window. When you position the mouse curser over any part of the browser you get an hour glass. WinRunner will not procede because it is waiting for this process to complete. Within the application windows you can continue to procede by manually manipulating the objects. Since there is a workaround, development does not feel the priority of this bug is high. Does anyone know of any way to tell WinRunner to procede? Thanks,
Re: Browser window active process
Well you can throw an ESCAPE hot key at the browser main window (using I believe TypeKeys() or a similar function--sorry, I am back working with SilkTest again), which normally stops browser loading/waiting/blah.
But the problem with that strategy is, how long do you wait to throw the hot key? If you throw it when the page is truly loading slowly then your page will only have some of the needed objects.
Sync'ing with browser ready is so fundamental to the "reliable" use of WebTest that your development team should solve this bug with a higher priority--after all it is a bug they need to fix sometime, and you can demonstrate that it is crucial to your testing needs.
