Honestly I’m not sure about DOM objects, GuiTest seems more intended for the regular Windowing system, not the browser object model.  I’ve never tried that.  But I guess if objects in the DOM have IDs and is visible with winspy, then GuiTest should be able to manipulate it.

 

Try using a program called WinID which allows you to drag the mouse over an app and it updates the various ID and other info in realtime, so you can determine if a specific object has an ID and what it is very quickly.

I did the little tutorial with calc just sort of got lost when I used winspy when trying to get the exact value of the HTML dom object I want (couldn't find it) would be grerat if there was a simple example out there or i guess I could write one if there isn't. Just started looking at this today, after seeing a great demo by Renne Backer at YAPC2007.

 

I am in the typical lone developer situation, if I make a 10min change I have 3 hours of retesting to do.  A script like this will save me a great deal of time. 

 

Anyway more for me to look at tommorrow.

 

Thanks for the quick reply.

 

cheers

That is extremely straightforward and the examples at the top of the Win32-GuiTest documentation should cover the basics and you’d only need to use a couple of extra functions, like SetText or dropdown related functions.

 

Have you read the documentation?  Are you looking to start from an example or thinking of writing it all yourself?

Nothing fancy really.

 

For example go to a select list, make a selection and then submit the page and see what turns up?.

 

any examples out there?

Win32-GuiTest should work great for that, depending on what you want to do exactly, but if you just want to poke at things on a browser page, it should be good.  Each app can have its own specific weird issues but generally GuiTest has the tools to deal with them all.  Can you describe more what you want to do?

I would like to use WINGui test for automating the testing of a wack of HTML pages in IE.  Before I go out and reinvent the wheel(Despinte what Jean Forget says)  has anyone used windGuitest for that?? or am I just playing with the wrong package???
