Working With FCK editors

I had troubles working with FCK editors using QTP.
As these editors are recorded as “WebElement” it is not possible to perform “Set” operation on them
I came across two posts which talk about dealing with this issue,
 
One is of Tarun’s where in talks about using “object” as well as “DeviceReplay” methods which could be used to simulate control on FCK editor
He suggests not using “object” for browsers other than IE as it is supported only in IE
 
 
Browser("testB").Page("testP").Frame("Frame").WebElement("WebElement").object.innerText = "Text
Browser("testB").Page("testP").Frame("Frame").WebElement("WebElement").object. innerHTML
= "<h1>Text</h1>
 
 
While other method uses object “DeviceReply” object to exercise object on which control is brought.
 
'Click on Application Object
Browser("testB").Page("testP").Frame("Frame").WebElement("WebElement").Click
 
'Create device replay object
Set oDR = CreateObject("Mercury.DeviceReplay")
 
'Send some text
oDR.SendString "Text Text"
 
'Deallocate Object
oDR = Nothing
 
There is one more portal which provides more detail information it – Advanced QTP, did not have time to go through it
 
THanks,
Tarun K

How can you save resources when instantiaing driver?

I asked on my previous post about what was wrong in instantiating driver on set up method? And here is the solution video on my YouTube channel (After 5 years of gap I finally added new video tutorial :)) The solution described on video tutorial uses following set up - public class BaseClassOnDemandDriverSetup { private WebDriver driver ; @BeforeMethod public void setupTest () { // Any other set up goes here } @AfterMethod public void teardown () { if ( driver != null ) { driver .quit() ; } } public WebDriver getDriver () { if ( driver == null ) { WebDriverManager. chromedriver ().setup() ; driver = new ChromeDriver() ; } return driver ; } }

Security Testing and Selenium

I have come across many articles which talk of carrying out security testing with selenium however I found it very cumbersome to set up such tests. This is what this tutorial is going to make easy for you. It cover. My next Security Testing and Selenium YouTube video covers following - Importance of having security testing on CI What is dynamic application security testing Recommended tools from https://owasp.org/www-community/Vulnerability_Scanning_Tools What is https://owasp.org/ ?   Using https://www.zaproxy.org/    Project setup  <dependency> <groupId> org.zaproxy </groupId> <artifactId> zap-clientapi </artifactId> <version> 1.9.0 </version> </dependency> <dependency> <groupId> org.zaproxy </groupId> <artifactId> zap </artifactId> <version> 2.10.0 </version> </dependency> Start ZAP daemom (headless) mode  ./zap.sh -daemon -host 127.0.0.1 -port 8080 -config api.addrs.a

Using chrome console to test xPath and css selectors

Since the advent of selenium there have been many plugin to test xPath / css selectors but you don’t need any of them if you have chrome browser. Using Chrome console you can test both xPath and css selectors. Launch website to be tested in chrome browser and hit F-12 and you would see chrome console opened in lower pane of application - Hit escape key and console would open another pane to write element locators - And now you can start writing xPath or css selectors in chrome console and test them - The syntax for writing css id - $$(“ ”) And hit the enter key. If your expression is right then html snippet of the application element corresponding to the css selector would be displayed - If you mouse over the html snippet in chrome console then it would highlight the corresponding element in application - If you want to clean console of previously written element selectors then just hit ctrl+L keys and chrome console would be empty again.
