Has anyone struggled with QTP just to get one, yes ONE stinkin' line of code to work in QTP all day?
There's no way I can be the only one. I would like to think I'm a good problem solver, but QTP sometimes wins the day on just getting the syntax, etc right on just one line of code. Come on already..
Are you frustrated with yourself or the tool ? Are you saying, the code you are writing is correct yet the compiler is flagging it [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] ?
I enjoy the problems and finding workarounds. Would be rather dull if everything worked all the time. [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Frustration comes in more for problems the application developers refuse to fix that could greatly increase the speed of automation but they don't see it as being worth the return on investment.
In automation we have to face problems daily, take it as a challenge and enjoy working with it.
As per my view more number of error leads you to gain more knowledge regarding the tool.
If you think I have mentioned anything wrong then I am sorry for that. I just shared my view.
The issue what you have listed does not exist, works fine in my machine- stupid comment from the developer
I would agree that the challenges and problems lead to a greater understanding of the application - both QTP as well as your AUT sometimes. Good luck!
Ah, the day I wrote that, I was steamin' mad at trying to get um, something to work right. Now I forgot it, ergo I must have solved it(workaround or otherwise). I had to vent.
Now only if my frustrations with Linux only made me a more skilled individual using it. Nope, I'm still dumb when it comes to that OS. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
