    GUI Spy usage without the rest of QTP?

    I want to use the QTP GUI spy without the rest of QTP. I want to get the information from the Gui Spy and collect it into a different application than QTP. I will still use QTP for my other tasks.

    I would like to collect information from the application under test into my own format.

    Can the GUI Spy be called as a DOM object or some other way outside of QTP?

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    I don't think the spy can be run stand alone. I'm thinking you could use descriptive programming to get the information or you could export an object repository and edit to your liking.
    Patience is like bread I say.... I ran out of that yesterday.

    If you have visual studio installed. There is a GUI validator tool you can use to spy on objects. It's normallly used to check the objects accessibility properties.

    I dont think Object Spy is available as standalone.

    If you are interested to find properties, then you can do this many ways.

    1. Developer Tools:
    Open IE and your website -> Click F12 -> You will find Find menu option -> Select element by click -> Once you click on the element it will show its native properties.

    You will have many Add-Ons to IE(If i am not wrong)

    For Firefox, most of the people use FireBug.

    Yeah I would not expect to see any support for something like this from QTP...would mean less license money for them. As has been pointed out though browser development tools accomplish the same thing...for web objects anyway.

    Hi bklabel1,
    You can do this, refer to this URL Automation Object Model Chart, It talks about Automation Object model. Good Luck.

    During those good old SilkTest days, I used Ranorex for spying on objects as this tool seems to be one of the best out there for Object Recognition. (works really really well until the eval period ends) Things that SilkTest or QTP does not see, this Ranorex tool can.
