    Peregrine

    User Wind, Diana (WindD@aetna.com.nospam) posted:


    Everyone:

    I am trying to test a Peregrine application. However, it does not seem to be
    recognizing anything on the screen. It is almost like a piece of glass is
    covering everything and not allowing me to get to the objects.

    Any advice?

    Thanks.

    Diana

    Diana, I'm not familiar with this vendor. You may not find anyone who has
    worked with Peregrine. In any case, it is important that we know which
    version of Robot you are using, and what base technology their software is
    based upon, e.g., HTML, Java, Visual Basic, Delphi, PowerBuilder.

    The problem may be due to one or more of the following:
    1. Custom controls (not based on any standard class that Robot knows).
    2. Controls are "soft"/"painted-on" (no window handle), in which case
    Robot will only be able to treat them as "Generic" (must sing "Three Blind
    Mice" and specify Coords when clicking on "controls").
    3. SQA Object Testing OCX required to enable Robot to recognize these
    control. In older versions of Robot, you must insert this control in all
    forms in the project (developer does this, then recompiles/links the
    project).

    HTH,

    Luke

    The problem is not the controls themselves due to Robot not even recognizing
    that anything is there. All it sees is the window.

    I will take a look into this one. I know the application is written in C++.
    I will have to see if the vendor can put the ocx into the code.

    BTW, I am using Robot v2000 (but could upgrade to v2001a easily) - don't
    even ask about 2002, it is not a possibility until June.

    Thanks.

    Please see my replies below. Good luck...

    This would indicate that all of the controls are "painted on" (not real
    controls, but simply bitmaps).

    With versions 2000.02.10 and later, you don't generally need to add the
    SQA OCX, though some on this list may claim otherwise. In any case, I was
    assuming you are using this tool to build your own product (in-house). If
    it's a third-party application, don't waste any time trying to get them to
    do this.

    Upgrade to version 2001a is a good idea, but I'm not sure if it will help
    with this issue. No need to upgrade to 2002 unless you need to test on
    Windows XP.

    You may wish to investigate an alternative test tool. One to consider is
    AcuTest, which claims to use an "image verification" methodology to
    interact with the application, and can thus handle "painted" controls. I
    have never used this product, and don't endorse it.
