I need to determine a way to get a Test Engineer or QA Tech's attention. Audio may not work as the tester may not have headphones or speakers plugged in. What I was thinking of doing was creating and playing a video that shifts from black to white and back until the tester hits a key, but that may interfere with what we are testing, or if there was a way to do something like this using AutoIt. That is, using AutoIt to Flash the screen, not play the video.
Searching the inet for "Flash Video AutoIt" or other combinations brings up lots of answers to Video Flashing problems with monitors, but nothing to help me with this.
I am writing tests for a video utility and there are some areas of the test that require the tester to LOOK at the monitor to verify video quality or other things that can only be validated by looking at the screen. Other tests are validated internally and automatically post "Pass" or "Fail" messages to the log file.
Yeah I know they are supposed to be watching but they test multiple systems at once and can't watch everything.
Are there features of AutoIt that could help me?
I am looking at using autoit to automate testing of a website at work with IE.au3 because even though it has been a long time since I have used autoit, I have written a few applications with it and I am not impressed with cucumber as a method of automated testing.
Unfortunately the developer of the website lacked experience and the code is not very 'test' friendly, a lot of page elements do not have ID or Names defined and the employers do not want to put the time/cost into dealing with the technical debt.
My question is, will autoit with IE.au3 be able to find elements by drilling down the HTML DOM tree (if this is the correct term) of a web page?
Any advice would be appreciated.
These example apps can be used to lock the keyboard and mouse (useful for test automation).
I've also included a Toddler/Child Lock app which lets them press some keys A-Z and 0-9 and move the mouse
and plays a sound.
Its uses BlockInputEx UDF
Most example ALT+ESC to end
