Capturing Data from Pop-up windows
I am testing a web application which has two non-editable fields (employee-name & manager-name) - that gets populated from a pop-up window.
User clicks on a browse link adjacent to the employee field - pop-up window opens. The pop_up windows has a search text field. As the user types the letters in the search text field- there is table in the bottom of the window that goes to the correct employee name. For eg: - if the employee types 't' it goes to the first name with 't' say 'tammy' and if user has typed 'to' it goes to 'tom'. And once the user has the correct name chosen, hitting the 'enter' key will close the pop_up window and the chosen data(which is a hyperlink) will be populated in the employee text field.
Same thing happens with the 'manager' field.
This functionality works ok with the browser. But in e-Tester - nothing is happening when I type in letters in the search text field in the pop_up window.
what should I do to record this functionality?
thanks in advance,

You may want to try page snapping it. So when you get to the pop-up window, type in the letter that you want and go up to run, then go to the record and select the page snapshot. Snap any actions that you do in the pop-up and then continue on as normal.
