QTP @ Synchronization
Synchronizing is the process of utilizing time lines / time periods until for a specific purpose
When you run tests, your application may not always respond with the same speed.
For example, it might take a few seconds:
- For a progress bar to reach 100%
- For a button to become enabled
- For a button to become disabled
- For a window or pop-up message to open
You can handle these anticipated timing problems by synchronizing your test to ensure that QuickTest waits until your application is ready before performing a certain step
Synchronization - Ways to synchronize the test
There are several options that you can use to synchronize your test:
We can insert a synchronization point, which instructs
QuickTest to pause the test until an object property achieves the value you specify. QTP -> Insert > Synchronization Point
We can use Sync method to utilize the synchronization until for a specific time
We can insert Exist statements that instruct QuickTest to wait until an object exists
We can use Wait to wait a specified amount of time before continuing the test.
You can also use Waitproperty(“propertyname”)
You can also increase the default Timeout settings in the Test Settings and Options dialog boxes in order to instruct QuickTest to allow more time for certain events to occur.
QTP -> File > Settings > Run > Synchronization timeout
