Making HTML Applications Testable
To make HTML applications testable:
Verify that the HTML extension is loaded in Robot.
Using the Start Browser Command.
These steps are described in the following sections.
If you are recording on Netscape 4.x, the additional step to enable caching both on
the server and on the client is required. Refer to Notes on Using Netscape Navigator 4.x
on page 18.
Verifying That the HTML Extension Is Loaded
To test HTML applications, you must first make sure that an HTML extension is
loaded in Robot. To do this:
1. Start Robot.
2. Click Tools > Extension Manager.
3. In the Extension Manager dialog box, verify that HTML-MSIE or
HTML-Navigator 4.7x is selected. If not, select one.
If you are using Netscape Navigator 4.x, see Notes on Using Netscape Navigator 4.x
on page 18.
4. To improve the performance of Robot, clear the check boxes of all environments
that you do not plan to test.
5. Exit Robot.
NOTE: Robot does not support the HTML tag "Input Type=File." Also, Robot
does not insert a Browser NewPage during recording if the object selected for
verification point capture is "Window." To resolve this, first record an innocuous
click on the page, and then capture the property that you want. This inserts a
Browser NewPage and performs the synchronization. Or, you can manually code
the Browser NewPage to make the test script work as expected.
