Re: issue with access web page via IE bookmark in WR
A somewhat lengthy but viable solution is attached.
issue with access web page via IE bookmark in WR
Has anyone encountered some strange behavior of accessing web page via the "Favorites" menu on the IE toolbar?
In my test scripts, from time to time, I add a site to "Favorites" using very simple name (because IE bookmark doesnot like certain characters). I like using this method to manage session state during a web test, when session needs to be broken and resumed (like when you need to test logout related functionalities). And I can delete the bookmark whenever I am done with it. This saves me a lot of hassle of maintaining a whole bunch of global variables to pass URL strings all over the place.
The PROBLEM is: when I run my test scripts, and try to access various bookmarked pages in a for loop, in some iterations, IE will drop down the "Favorites" menu and then hang in there indefinitely, though the bookmark is right there in display. I have not found a pattern, say, in which iteration it will occur as it seems to be intermittent.
Anyone has some experience over this? I am about to go back to my global variable route if I don't hear anything, sadly:-(.
