My company is in the process of evaluating software for automating our testing. One of the packages we are evaluating is VisualTest 6.5.
One of the development tools we use is Apex TrueGrid 2.1C. As I've tried to run scripts that use the TrueGrid forms, they don't seem to be recognized by VisualTest.
Does anyone else use this version of TrueGrid, as well as Visual Test? Have you run into this problem, or anything similar? If so, what is the workaround you are using? I'd gladly send scripting examples to anyone who can offer assistance.
I have run into problems with some of our custom controls before where VT wont recognize them or at least wont recognize captions and text relations. Sometimes if I switch to ordinal references i can recognize these things. Worst case scenario, if nothing else works, I script assuming the control is present and use the (sigh) play command. Its ghetto, but sometimes its the only thing that works. It would definitly be sad if you had to do that all the time.
For the specific or custom controls, we need to be hard coding in VT or other Automation tools.
First focus that control & define columns internally.
To get value from the corresponding (column, row), use clipboard.
To set value, use play methods.
To select any one, use your own tricky way.
