STEP3 Executing the scenario

Start executing this sample scenario with WinActor. This sample scenario ends when the entering of input character string is completed.

STEP4 Confirm the status of the executed scenario

After the execution of this sample scenario is completed, the input character string is entered in the focused field of front screen. In the case of the example of Step 2, "WinActor Input Test" is entered.

Trouble shooting

In this sample scenario, if there is no field for inputting text on the front screen, or if the text inputting field is not focused, the sample scenario may end without entering the input character string. In such a case, while waiting for 5 seconds after the sample scenario execution starts, click the field you want to input the character string on the screen and make focus on that.

Explanation

This section describes the implementation technique used in this sample scenario.

Target window settings

The window to be input by this sample scenario is assumed to be a pop-up window (eg. Authentication information input window, etc.) that is focused on the input field. In addition to implementing this scenario, it can be used as a more enhanced scenario by making modifications such as opening a window and focusing on the input field.

For example, there is a library called "23_Browser/Browser_Click.ums6". With this library, you can perform the operation of "specifying and clicking elements (buttons, links, etc.) in a web page". By clicking the input field with this library, focusing on it, and then performing the operation of this sample scenario, more advanced usage is possible. For how to use the browser related library, refer to "WinActor_Browser_Operation_Scenario_Creation_Manual.pdf" *.
