    How to read/verify Tooltip Text

    I run SilkTest5.0 on a WIN NT Box and use IE4 for Testing. I am testing Web Applications and the Pages have a lot of Tooltip Text which change with the page being loaded.

    How do I use Silktest to read/verify the Tooltip Text on a Web Page? FYI, the web page I am using does not use Frames....

    Thanks in Advance,

    Ajay

    You may want to check out the GetHelpText method from the Online Help.

    Re: How to read/verify Tooltip Text

    Hi,

    I am using the GetHelpText method for tooltips for my toolbar.

    I have question. I have controlbar also. I am trying to use GetHelpText method for the too tips. But it gets "00 x 00" instead of string. Any idea? Why it is doing that? For toolbar everything works fine.

    Thank you verymuch.

    Re: How to read/verify Tooltip Text

    I too am trying to verify tooltip contents. I can successfully use the GetHelpText method on standard toolbar buttons (I tried using WinZip, and it worked fine). But on anything outside of that, it just won't pick it up or I get that strange 0x0 data. Unfortunately, the Silk manual doesn't have much to say about it.

    Has anybody had any success getting around this problem? Thanks!

    Z.

    Re: How to read/verify Tooltip Text

    On HTML pages I use GetCaption to retrieve the alt text for an HtmlImage.

    I have also been trying to use either
    GetHelpText or GetCaption,
    and in neither case will it return the Alt Text, Tool Tip, Popup, whatever you call it.

    My apologies, I should have been more specific in my previous post. GetCaption works if you use IE 5 and the DOM extension.

    Re: How to read/verify Tooltip Text

    i have a question with regards to tooltips. i am attempting to verify the tooltip of a disabled toolbar button and SilkTest returns an error that the control is disabled. what's the way around this? thanks.

    ------------------

    i figured out this problem. i just set the agent option.

    Re: How to read/verify Tooltip Text

    also, two other problems i am running into is that, when i do a GetHelpText(), the returned value is not correct. for example, i have a toolbar

    TBar1 TBar2 TBar3 TBar4 TBar5

    When I do a GetHelpText()on TBar2, it returns T&Bar1. It is supposed to return TBar2 and I have no idea where the '&' came from. Any ideas why it is acting up this way?


    Thanks.
