Website regression check with Autoit?

2 posts in this topic

just curious how difficult it is to fill out text/select boxes with autoit?

A responsive system would be nice but is not needed.

I was thinking of a system that does the following:

has an array of elements on the page.

Element id, String for text boxes

Element id, Index for radio and select boxes.

So there would be a line of these..

0, "this is a test"

1, 1

2, "secound string test"

3, 4

if the second element is a integer then it would know that it's a radio/select box.

if the second element is blank then skip that ID.

This of course sounds easy on paper...how hard is this to do in reality?

Should i use a different language? like java?

Has someone already made a similar tool?

Thanks for any information.

AutoIt, particularly with IE.au3 (see my sig), gives you the raw materials to do this pretty easily.

There are certainly other tools that do this (and you may want to look at them if 1) you have a $$ budget, 2) if you are performing a large number of tests and maintaining the detailed results of test suites is a focus.

One to check out might be WebInject

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
