How does eValid check the contents of the screen?
Please show me the steps involved as well.
Thanks for the post FriedaR.
To use eValid to validate a screen rectangle in a sub-window follow these simple steps:
1. Start recording and navigate to the site where the sub-window is launched.
You will be prompted that eValid will begin recording in Application Mode.
2. Once the sub-window is launched, make sure that the eValid window is currently in focus.
You can do this by clicking inside the eValid window (which might be recorded) or by clicking on the border (which won't be recorded).
3. With the eValid window in focus, either use this eValid Menu sequence: eValid > Record Mode > Validate > & Synchronize > Screen Rectangle
Alternately, press "Ctrl + Q" to activate the Validate & Synchronize dialog.
4. After clicking OK, eValid anticipates the next two clicks as the two points of the corner of the synchronization rectangle.
If the sub window is exposed you can click once, then a second time there, to complete the recording.
5. Alternatively, you can click on the border of the sub window to bring it into focus.
This click is not sensed by eValid, so it doesn't count as one of the two clicks eValid is expecting.
Now go ahead and define the synchronization area.
During playback, eValid will then select the area to be validated and will highlight the selection made.
An error is written in the log files if the checksum value generated during playback does not match the value calculated at the time the script was recorded.
