Auto It for executing multiple tests back to back with results(Pass/fail)...

12 posts in this topic

Can AutoIt be used to run multiple tests back to back and generate a pass/fail results for each of them.

For eg. I am testing a desktop application and have designed test cases for File Menu(Open,New,Save) and Edit Menu(Cut,Copy,Paste). I tried implementing it but found the following issues:

1) AutoIt pauses when a test case fails,it doesnot proceed to next test case.

2) I found no option to generate a pass/fail status for each of them.

Can anyone help me in this regards??

giyer,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

The answer to your question is "almost certainly" - but until we can see your code we cannot really help much more than that. :D

When you post your code please use Code tags - put [autoit] before and [/autoit] after it. ;)

For your tags, change <autoit> to [autoit], same with end tags.

ok..here it is

I have used Au3Record 3.1(Scriptwriter) for this purpose:

1) First is the File Open Test.This will open a file already saved in hard disc.

Opt("WinWaitDelay",100)
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4)
Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1)
Opt("MouseCoordMode",0)
WinWait("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")
If Not WinActive("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","") Then WinActivate("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")
WinWaitActive("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")
MouseMove(54,33)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
WinWait("Start Menu","")
If Not WinActive("Start Menu","") Then WinActivate("Start Menu","")
WinWaitActive("Start Menu","")
MouseMove(95,200)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
WinWait("Untitled - Notepad","")
If Not WinActive("Untitled - Notepad","") Then WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad","")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad","")
MouseMove(16,38)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
MouseMove(21,76)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
WinWait("Open","")
If Not WinActive("Open","") Then WinActivate("Open","")
WinWaitActive("Open","")
MouseMove(145,315)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
MouseMove(496,368)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
WinWait("sample - Notepad","")
If Not WinActive("sample - Notepad","") Then WinActivate("sample - Notepad","")
WinWaitActive("sample - Notepad","")
MouseMove(636,19)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")

2) Second is to check File is be saved or not.

Opt("WinWaitDelay",100)
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4)
Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1)
Opt("MouseCoordMode",0)
WinWait("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")
If Not WinActive("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","") Then WinActivate("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")
WinWaitActive("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")
MouseMove(12,20)
MouseDown("left")
MouseMove(13,20)
MouseUp("left")
WinWait("Start Menu","")
If Not WinActive("Start Menu","") Then WinActivate("Start Menu","")
WinWaitActive("Start Menu","")
MouseMove(58,198)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
WinWait("Untitled - Notepad","")
If Not WinActive("Untitled - Notepad","") Then WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad","")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad","")
MouseMove(65,192)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
Send("hi")
MouseMove(23,35)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
MouseMove(36,97)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
WinWait("Save As","")
If Not WinActive("Save As","") Then WinActivate("Save As","")
WinWaitActive("Save As","")
Send("new{SPACE}notepad")
MouseMove(506,369)
MouseDown("left")
MouseUp("left")
WinWait("new notepad - Notepad","")
If Not WinActive("new notepad - Notepad","") Then WinActivate("new notepad - Notepad","")
WinWaitActive("new notepad - Notepad","")
MouseMove(638,20)
MouseDown("left")
MouseMove(637,20)
MouseUp("left")

I want to run these two tests back to back and generate a pass or fail result.

The basic idea is to automate the whole Menu Bar functionality tests in a similar manner and obtain a result for each test cases.

This is eventually to be used as a "night build" to perform regression tests in case of further enhacements to the build to reduce human effort involved.

Could you explain how it can be used for the above purpose..Also how it can be used to generate a pass/fail result...

What represents "Pass" and "Fail" in your eyes? Is it when a window never appears?

its like how QTP(Quick test) generates a report on how many tests passed/ failed on executing.

So that i can run multiple tests at night and get results in the morning..

I understand what your end goal is, but still dont know what establishes weather or not the test passed or failed. What happens or dosnt happen that you consider pass/fail? Establish that first, then we can move on to generating a report of the outcome.

Ok. Each group of code you have should be in a function. this way you can return a 1 or a 0 for weather or not the test passed/failed. For the first case set a timeout for winwaitactive. If the timeout occurs it failed. For the second you could use fileexists() function to see if the file got created.

$open = WinWaitActive("Open","", 5)
If Not $open then
consolewrite('test failed')
return 0
endif
