Explaining to me the details about recording and playback of File Download Scripts?
Thanks for asking IWolfe.
I'll try to explain.
Being able to record and playback a script which involves downloading files from a specific page is often a very important requirement in a test.
The tester must be aware of the settings that need to be set from the preferences section of eValid to get the proper recording of a file download.
In most cases, the tester will have to use the ModalDialog commands (available from the extrinsic commands list within the eValid script window) to be able to handle these windows dialogs.
Since there are various different types of "File Download" dialogs, you may have to apply a mix of application mode and/or desktop mode recording along with the ModalDialog commands to get the desired results.
For more information on the eValid Preferences, please refer to:
Record/Play User Preferences in the product documentation.
For more information on ModalDialog Support, please refer to:
Support for Testing Modal Dialogs in the product documentation.
To effectively run the recorded file download script as a LoadTest in which multiple downloads occur, the user must use the Lock/Unlock command from the Extrinsic commands list to bracket specific commands in the script file which requires desktop focus during execution.
This step makes sure that the "File Download" dialogs do not interfere with each other during a LoadTest run by explicitly locking each instance of eValid during the file save process.
For scripts that download the same file during a LoadTest, eValid can pass a filename as a parameter in the LoadTest so each identical file will have a unique filename when downloaded.
