Hello.

How do you map a website that has a lot of JavaScript?

Please include some instructions on how to deal with this issue.

Thanks for posting your question JMicheal.

Using JavaScript to navigate to a page sometimes does not work well, with other site mapping tools because it relies on URLs to be mapped properly.

To have eValid map such navigations, follow these steps:

(1) Navigate to the site you want to map.

(2) Start your recording.

(3) Perform a Dynamic Link Check by clicking "eValid > Record > Wizards > Link Test Wizard > Dynamic Advanced"

(4) The DynamicLinkCheckX command will be appended to the end of the script and consequently, a script will be created with the same name given to the .evs file but with a -DLC (DynamicLinkCheck) tag added to it.

(5) As soon as you play back the script, the newly created script will then be loaded and will perform the actual dynamic link checks based on the current links in the page.

A DynamicLinkCheckX is performed by eValid by gathering a list of URLs which are available to navigate to.

eValid then performs a FollowLink to each URL and then executes a GoBackTo command to return to the initial page.

A StaticLinkCheck reads the URLs which are available at the time of recording and perform a GotoLink on each one.

Any URLs which are subsequently added after the recording has been made are not included unless manually added in the link checking.
