Recording Test Case

Recording Test Case
To test any application, you can run the application and understand its operation. Then you can invoke win runner, again run the application and record the GUI operations. During the recording mode, win runner will capture all the actions, which button you pressed, where you clicked the mouse etc. You need to work with the application as usual and perform all the actions to be tested. Once the recording is completed, win runner generates a script in TSL. You can run this test script to view the results of the test cases.
There are two modes of testing:
  1. Context sensitive
    Context sensitive mode records your operations in terms of the GUI objects in your application. Win runner identifies each object you click, and the type of operation you perform. For example, if you record a mouse click on the OK button in the flight reservation login window, win runner records the following TSL:
    button_press (“OK”)
    When you run the script, win runner reads the command, looks for the OK button and presses it.
  2. Analog
    In analog mode, Win runner records the exact coordinates traveled by mouse, as well as mouse clicks the keyboard input.
