TP cant recognize data in a grid control
I have an application that retreives data from an oracle DB and displays it in a grid control. I want to be able to verify that certain data exists somewhere in the grid. However TP cant see the contents. I just get an error saying "failed to extract the data for the specified attach name" Is there any changes we can make to either the application or TP in order to see the data? Management will even consider purchasing a new grid control that is compatible with TP. I think that it would be advantageous for component writers to advertise compatibility with automated test tools but I havent found any that specifically say so. Any ideas, thanks in advance.
Re: TP cant recognize data in a grid control
For most grid controls you need to programatically retrieve the data by setting objects and comparing the data to baseline data either programatically or through the use of Active data. I can't think of a gridview which will allow you to create a content check off of the top of my head.
It will be a little work setting up the script but once you have done so it should be pretty reliable. There should be plenty of posts on the topic for you to find examples here.
