Hi

the video tutorial for capturing the dynamic text is very excellent . hope that you continue your efforts for the video tutorials in future too. Can you concentrate a little bit more on "ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES" ,"DESCRIPTIVE PROGRAMMING" AND "HOW TO POST THE RESULTS FROM QTP TO QUALITY CENTRE",

Dear Dima, you are genius.You can explain difficult for us topics so simple and we began to understand that it was not rock indeed. You are real TEACHER, not, real GURU. I am very happy that I found your blog and now it is my favorite site. Thanks a lot. Ludmila.

Dmitry Motevich said...

2Ludmila:
I perfectly understand that I'm not a QTP guru... And I'm not a QTP teacher. I don't have QTP certification even :)

All I did is I read QTP Help files.
Believe me, QTP Help is extremely useful and informative.

hi friend,
i'm having problem "How to get the Text/Data present on security tag.Because it's identified as image.I'm unable to get the data present on image.Hope you understand my problem.

Dmitry Motevich said...

I think, you dealt with a CAPTCHA.
There is a special protection against a spam. There is no 100% solution.
I can suggest to OCR software to capture the text on image.

Sugu (September 12),
You cannot use "Text Output Value" without recording.

Hi Dimtry, the video is simply awesome. I tried to do this with my application (www.xyz.com), but I am failed to get the dynamic text. It simply throwing an error saying that 'can not create text output' and 'cannot retrive text for this object'. please help me in this...

Dmitry Motevich said...

@Habibuddin,
Provide detailed info.

Habibuddin said...

Hi Dimtry,

I have recorded some actions on my application. when I select some text on the active screen and rightclick then select 'Insert text output', it simply throwing an error message "Cannot create text output" and "Cannot retrieve text from this object."

Same is the case for inserting checkpoint. It simply throwing error message saying that "Cannot create checkpoint" and "Can't identify the web element." Please help me...

Dmitry Motevich said...

@Habibuddin,
I cannot help you because you didn't provide detailed info.
You should understand that I've never seen your application, I've never worked with it.

Habibuddin said...

Hi Dimtry,

I am using the URL "http://206.72.242.4/ilrn/"
and recorded the action of clicking the 'create an account' button and stops the recording. When I try to insert the check point or use the test output value, the system is throwing the error, that I have mentioned in my previous querry. Please let me know if any more information is needed.

Dmitry Motevich said...

@Habibuddin,
I could add Text Output on your web application

Hi Dimitry,
Great tutorials.
I am looking for an example that shows how to measure the time of page loads and couldn't find a good tutorial on that.
I currently use the sync option but is there an overall best practice for waiting for transactions to complete for timing purposes? What about none web base applications?

Thanks,
A
