    Tough nut to crack (MS OUTLOOK 2000)

    Can anybody give me a sample code for action “File --- > New --- > New Mail Message” for Microsoft Outlook 2000 using Rational Robot

    Precondition: - Microsoft Outlook 2000 is open in maximize mode

    Condition for writing code: -
    1) Avoid use of co-ordinates
    2) Avoid use of Short cut keys (do not use InputKeys method of Robot)
    3) Only use mouse actions
    4) Using OLE2/COM interface of outlook is a sure option but then I have to test the GUI of outlook under a particular environment. So again using OLE2/COM interface is also not a solution.

    Post condition: - Should be able to open New Mail Message window with the use of mouse events/actions only.

    Don't get your statement about COM, so just record playback is what your 'assignment' calls for.

    Microsoft interface is not made to record against that's why they have a nice COM interface.
