Use autoit to do windows based application testing

Recommended Posts

we are evaluating the existing tool to do  the windows based application testing.  Autoit seems like can do it.  does anyone use it as a testing tool?

I do, in combination with other tools if needed. But since we have good UIAutomation support, it's very usable. See FAQ 31 on the Wiki

You will really want to use UIAutomation if dealing with apps that are not comprised of Win32 objects--otherwise native AutoIt does the trick.

 

 

Read all of those threads, understand the material, download the code and practice on the getting all the samples to run correctly. That verifies you can do it and it's working. Then you can begin.

Thank you so much for the information.  one of my major concerns is how to use autoit to track the test case and testing result.

That’s all up to you. I have all my tests create log files. This is not like test complete if you need something like that then go buy it and use that instead

My company uses Ranorex or UFT for most automated testing.

I'm the AutoIt guy for whenever we need to test an application that can only be accessed from our Citrix Environment as it doesn't require any installations since Citrix is locked down.

Biggest downside to AutoIt vs the Expensive tools is the time it takes to develop and that you have to build everything from scratch.  Your logging, reporting, scripting.

but, I haven't found anything the expensive tools can do that I haven't been able to recreate with AutoIt.  Just takes time and effort.


hmm... I guess I have to have a signature...
