How does eValid handle locating a dynamic tag, like that from GWT and other web page frameworks, and then click on it.
Very good question BDobbins.
Indeed, dynamically changing pages can be quite troublesome.
You can't rely on simple "record it from life" because the recording will be based on a page structure that will have changed at playback time.
You have to this using the structual commands.
First, here is a description of how eValid looks into your page: http://www.e-valid.com/Products/Documen ... cture.html
Next, you have to locate some kind of "fixed point" that identifies the element and which is immune to the effects of AJAX. That's usually fairly easy to do...with a little diggine with the PageMap feature: http://www.e-valid.com/Products/Documen ... p.gui.html
Now, armed with the data about where you want to send the click event all you need to do is tell eValid to go to the correct event, i.e. the desired sourceIndex value, and issue the click with a mouse-down followed by a follow-link command.
Here are the commands to that do the job: http://www.e-valid.com/Products/Documen ... ple13.html
