Minimized browser will it read the script on the screen

Postby BFarrell » Wed Aug 01, 2018 10:38 am

Hi there.

I have an eValid script and I minimize the eValid browser when the script is running...

My question is what happens if the script needs to read from the screen during the operation?

Thanks

Fair question.

The commands that eValid executes all operate when the browser with test enablement is on the desktop, but only those commands which specifically operate in the DOM can run when the browser is minimized.

eValid calls "desktop recording" "Application Mode Recording" in the sense that an desktop application is different from a rendered web page.

See this manual page:

http://e-valid.com/Products/Documentati ... .mode.html

But the REAL reason explanation here is in this question:

If you run an eValid script with eValid minimized, when the command interpreter finds a command that uses Application Mode, what should eValid do?

You could either stop right there until the user un-minimizes eValid or, you could automatically un-minimize (i.e. restore) and then go ahead and run the command.

The old adage is, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it".

So, we chose to automatically restore the window so the you would not have one of those pesky lockup situations.

By the way, there is a command in eValid to restore a minimized instance:

Restore wid

The companion command:

Minimize wid

Hope this helps!
