Winrunner Question 48: What is a checkpoint and what are different types of checkpoints?
You can add four types of checkpoints to your test scripts:
- GUI checkpoints verify information about GUI objects. For example, you can check that a button is enabled or see which item is selected in a list.
- Bitmap checkpoints take a “snapshot” of a window or area of your application and compare this to an image captured in an earlier version.
- Text checkpoints read text in GUI objects and in bitmaps and enable you to verify their contents.
- Database checkpoints check the contents and the number of rows and columns of a result set, which is based on a query you create on your database.
