Testing PowerBuilder Applications
This chapter describes how to test 32-bit PowerBuilder applications with Rational
Robot. It includes the following topics:
About Robot support for PowerBuilder applications
Verifying that the PowerBuilder extension is loaded
Recording actions on DataWindows
Testing an expression value of a DataWindow property
Testing DataStore controls and hidden DataWindows
Capturing data in a DropDownDataWindow and DropDownListBox
Testing the value of a DataWindow computed field
About Robot Support for PowerBuilder Applications
Rational Robot provides comprehensive support for testing 32-bit applications built
with PowerBuilder 5.0 through 7.0. Robot supports the testing of applications that
you migrate from one PowerBuilder version to another, and allows for the reuse of
scripts between Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows 98, and Windows 95.
With its Object Testing technology, Robot examines data and properties that are not
visible to the user. Robot uses Object-Oriented Recording to recognize a
PowerBuilder object by its internal name.
