Hey very interesting list, and I have also visited almost all of these blogs, sites and forum and also an active member on sqaforums.. I am also developing a DP object repository which can be stored outside the QTP.
It uses database and a local web based application with javascript and vbscript which can also be hosted and can be run locally by double clicking on the webpage.. I guess without providing visual it will be difficult for describe and to understand
It also has several advantages which I’ll come later when I’ll complete it and host it in my weblog for downloads… I hope when you will see and use those pieces of code will surely add my blog in your list

Hi Dmirty,

Plz clear my doubt in LR.

How LR will recognize the application while play-back time? Is there any object recognition mechanism ?

I want to add objects during run time. For example, lets say customer page displayed which has 4 Web Edit fields, two weblist etc ,i want to capture these during run time only( i know creating objects thru OR and accessing those objects).For some purpose i need to capture the objects at run time and then add them to a temporary folder. I am using this code to get the objects in that page:
Set oDesc = Description.Create()
oDesc("micclass").Value = "WebEdit"
Set Links = Browser("xyz").Page("xyz").ChildObjects(oDesc)
NumberOfLists = Links.Count()
strTest =Links(i).GetROProperty("name")
By this i am able to retrieve all the web edits in that page and their names. But i have to add these objects to a temporary area, is it possible to do this?
I want to create objects during runtime for that particular page and then add them to local repository and use them again in the script.I have 70 clients, and they use the same customer page but with different object names in the page sometimes they do sometimes they have the same names.I dont want to create 70 different object reporsitories to access the web pages for each client
Please advise on this..
Appreciate any help...
