    Help on GUI checkpoints

    User (alan.church@bt.com.nospam) posted:

    I have a web frame that contains text and a listbox containing a list
    of values. This list of values can change. What I want to create is a
    GUI checkpoint that checks the frame for text and objects. However,
    the text check also picks up the values in the listbox. This means
    that most of the time the GUI checkpoint fails. Does anyone know how
    to create a GUI checkpoint that will check the text on the screen, but
    ignore the contents of the listbox.

    Hi,
    I am quite sure that you can edit the GUI checkpint to take ONLY
    what you want during run time. You just have to double click (sometimes
    you have to triple click) the object that you are Gui-capturing and then
    the GUI checkpoint window appears and then you just select or disselect
    the checks you want.

    Hope this helps,
    LIOR

    If it's working... don't touch it!

    Hi LIOR,

    Yes you can edit GUI checkpints to create what you want. For instance I can
    edit the listbox item in the GUI checklist to ignore its contents - which
    works fine. I can also edit the frame checklist to remove FrameContent, but
    this does not solve the problem as by doing this NO text in the frame is
    checked in the GUI checkpoint. A situation which is of no use to me.

    Another way to do this easily is to create the
    checkpoints using the "Checks Multiple Objects"
    option, even if it's only one that you're checking -
    this automatically brings up the dialog when you're
    creating the checkpoint, and you can pick and choose
    the values you want to check. On a list dialog, you
    can check the number of items if that's consistent,
    the text of the items, or nothing about the items and
    just that the list box appears.

    Maybe that will make things a bit easier.

    Sorry, Alan.

    I saw LIORs response before yours. If you want to
    check only certain text, first you could create an
    object check (if there are other things you're
    verifying), and after that, do checks only for the
    text you DO want to verify. There will be more
    checkpoints, but if you are checking only particular
    text because the rest is dynamic, it gets the job
    done.

    Hi Anne,

    Your solution is a perfectly adequate solution, in fact I do use that method
    at other times, but it is no use to me for this particular problem. Perhaps
    if I explain my logic it would help.

    What I want the GUI checkpoint to do is check the screen to see if the
    developers have made any changes, eg. additional text, new objects, screen
    layout etc. Using the GUI checkpoint the TSL script reports to TD wheteher
    there are any changes , or not. The script then continues to check
    objects/text that were present in the previous version of the software and
    send results to TD for each check.

    This approach makes it easy for a non-WR trained person to run the test via
    TD and interpret the result based on TD messages only. For example if the
    GUI checkpoint generates a message saying that the screen has changed,
    whilst the rest of the tests pass then objects/text must have been added to
    the screen. Using this info the person running the test can check if the
    additions are supposed to be there, or not, and raise defects as
    appropriate, ie. if they are supposed to be there raise a defect against the
    test, if not raise a defect against the software.

    I hope this clarifies waht I am hoping to achieve.

    Anyone got any more suggestions (all gratefully received)

    Sorry, only a newbie, so can't be of any help.

    Just wanted to say that what you're trying to do looks really cool and handy, and I look forward to seeing the solution.

    I have never dealt with HTML using WinRunner but perhaps creating a blank
    list entry and switching to that entry before doing the GUI checkpoint woul=
    d
    do the trick. If you used a checkpoint that was originally displaying a
    blank dropdown list item, then this would always be the same. Since you
    aren't checking what the contents of the list item is, it wouldn't matter
    that it is blank so it sounds like this would work. If you needed to check
    the dropdown list item, you could do a check on the dropdown list first
    before doing the GUI check on the text in the webpage. Just make sure to
    save the dropdown list item info before changing it to the blank list item
    for the GUI checkpoint check to switch back to after both the list item
    check and GUI checkpoint are completed.
