" End If 12. Differences between analog and low-level recordings? Analog Recording Records the Exact mouse movements and the keyboard operations Records with respect to Screen and Window Generates a single statement called a Track in the test script We cannot edit the steps in the Analog recording Low-Level Recording Records all the Run time object as Win Object Records on any object whether QTP identifies or not 9. What is the diff between Wait () and Exist ()? You can enter Exist and/or Wait statements to instruct QuickTest to wait for a window to open or an object to appear. What are the different types of recording? There are three types of recording in Quick Test Standard Recording Analog Recording Low-Level Recording 8. Exist (Timeout) Example: If Browser ("Mercury Tours").Exist Then MsgBox "The browser exists. What is the Syntax for an Exist sync statement? Object. How to record on non standard menus? Record using Analog mode and Low-Level mode 10. How can I record on objects or environments not supported by QuickTest? By creating Virtual Object and Perform Analog recording on those objects 11.Identify the objects to the Object Repository Identify the Reusable Actions Identify the Functions Author the Script for the testing Enhance the Script based on the Requirements Debug the Test Run the Test Analyze the Results Report the Defects 7. Exist statements return a Boolean value indicating whether or not an object currently exists. Wait statements instruct QuickTest to wait a specified amount of time before .

it might take a few seconds:     for a progress bar to reach 100% for a status message to appear for a button to become enabled for a window or pop-up message to open 14. How to change the logical name of a Test Object? The Logical name is the name of the object that QTP identified in the application. along with all its children. Right click on the Object name and select “Rename” to rename the logical name of the object 18. Why do we use ‘SPY’? SPY is used to view the Properties and the Methods of the Object in the application 17. The default properties are also called as the Mandatory properties. What are the different types of views available in QTP? Keyword View Expert View 15. For example. You can add any object as a single object or a parent object. html tag and image type 16. What are mandatory properties? Mandatory provides unique identification of the objects. You can combine these statements within a loop to instruct QuickTest to wait until the object exists before continuing with the test or component. 19. Insert a step in your test or component for a selected object from the Active Screen. your application may not always respond with the same speed. How many ways you can add object in repository? Use the Add Objects option in the Object Repository dialog box.proceeding to the next step. 13. Choose the View/Add Object option from the Active Screen. Why do you need synchronization and explain how global synchronization is implemented? When you run a test or component. For example the default properties for the Web Image Object are alt. What is the use of active screen at least 3 uses? Active screen is used to show the snapshot of the application To insert the Check Points we can use the Active screen To view the Source To add the objects to the object repository .

Check the “Reusable Action” 22. How many types of Check points are there in QTP? Standard Checkpoint Text Checkpoint Text Area Checkpoint Bitmap Checkpoint Database Checkpoint Accessibility Checkpoint XML Checkpoint (Web Frame) . and application crashes during a run session can disrupt your run session and distort results.20. What is Smart identification? Smart Identification is used when there is an Ambiguity between the two objects When two objects in an application contains same properties then identifying the objects is very difficult.qrs > 28. This is a problem particularly when running tests or components unattended—the test or component is suspended until you perform the operation needed to recover. Data table 2. Environmental Variable 30. What is correlation? The process in which the output value of a variable is used as an input to the another variable 25. How to execute VB function?

This is called as descriptive programming. if the link to a dynamically generated URL is an image. can use cookies both to store and retrieve information on the client side of the connection. report event is used to send the messages to the test results 34. For example. 39. without referring to the object’s logical name. QuickTest stores cookies in the memory for each user. What is descriptive programming? You can also instruct QuickTest to perform methods on objects without referring to the Object Repository. For example: Browser ("Window_logical_name"). How does QuickTest handle cookies? Server side connections. Therefore. To do this. How does QuickTest record on dynamically generated URLs and Web pages? QuickTest actually clicks on links as they are displayed on the page. You can use the Exist method to check whether or not a window exists. such as CGI scripts. you provide QuickTest with a list of properties and values that QuickTest can use to identify the object or objects on which you want to perform a method. How can I record and run tests on objects that change dynamically from viewing To viewing? Sometimes the content of objects in a Web page or application changes due to dynamic content. You can create dynamic descriptions of these objects so that QuickTest will recognize them when it runs the test 36. 33.Exist You can also use the Child Objects method to retrieve all child objects (or the subset of child objects that match a certain description) on the Desktop or within any other parent object. rather than the object itself. 37. then QuickTest records the "IMG" HTML tag. QuickTest records how to find a particular object. Where can I find a web page's cookie? 40.XML Checkpoint (File) 32. and the name of the image. 38. This enables QuickTest to find this image in the future and click on it. How to send messages to test the result? Reporter. and the browser handles them as it normally would.
