WinRunner and Smalltalk
User () posted:
Smalltalk Applications are unsupported in WinRunner, I sent an email to
support and they confirmed this and suggested using analog mode, and to
create virtual objects.
I'm wondering if anybody else out there has any experience testing
smalltalk apps in WinRunner, or if there are other tools available that
support smalltalk apps.
It seems to me that It may take more time to automate tests if I'm working
in analog mode, or creating a boat load of virtual objects.
Does anybody have any suggestions.

We develop WinRunner scripting against a Smalltalk application. WinRunner
recognises nothing but the window. All elements of the window are learnt as
virtual objects, this was painful early on but is far less so now. In
addition we developed a suite of WinRunner functions to perform standard
tasks against the interface e.g edit_get, edit_set, edit_check and of course
equivalents for drop downs, check buttons, option buttons, push buttons and
These functions basically retrieve the physical parameters of the object
being used from the GUI map. Then use the likes of win_get_text and win_type
to interface to the application. Some of them are more complex than this
performing pixel scans to determine whether an option is selected, but I'm
sure you get the picture.
