1668Re: [perlguitest] Re: silktest vs using win32::GuiTest
- Feb 19, 2007Hi Brent,
I am new to the win32::GuiTest, I want to do the functionality testing of an application using win32::GuiTest. Can you please tell me what are the basic steps, we need to take while designing the automation test frame work for that application using win32::GuiTest ?
Is there any kind of frame work for the win32::GuiTest ?
Or can you please guide me how to start the process of automating the functionality testing for an application using win32::GuiTest ?
if you have any specific documents related to the functionality testing using win32::GuiTest, please send it to me ?
Thanks for your help

Sure...commercial tools won't give you the source code. That was the
final deciding factor for me. Some of the commercial tools got close
to what I needed, but not quite. To be honest, GuiTest didn't do all
that I needed either. But as I started testing it out, I found it
easier to provide the missing functionality I needed with GuiTest then
any of the commercial products. I'm now going above and beyond my
original expectations for this project. And besides...if you're going
to program workarounds and additional code for something, you might as
well use the free product that lets you see their code instead of
paying for the opportunity to program around a piece of software you
For an MFC project GuiTest should provide most, if not all, of the
functionality you need. If you know Perl, you should be able to
create extensive testing scripts easily. I'm testing a .Net project,
so I've had to add a few functions to get what I needed. For most
scripts I write, it takes me about a day to get the main functionality
and error message handling written. Another day of data building and
shakedown, and the script is tested out as part of a complete test
case. I'm working on a few tools that will take the
time-to-production down as well. Some of my cases run for days
working through a huge amount of data. We're already using the
results to make corrections, and I'm not even halfway through
scripting our software. So that's my argument for GuiTest, I hope
