Winrunner Question 84: Which TSL functions you will use for Comparing the text?

Which TSL functions you will use for Comparing the text?

compare_text (str1, str2 [, chars1, chars2]);

str1, str2
The two strings to be compared.

chars1
One or more characters in the first string.

chars2

Winrunner Question 83: Which TSL functions you will use for moving the pointer to that text string?

Which TSL functions you will use for moving the pointer to that text string?

win_move_locator_text (window, string [ ,search_area  [ ,string_def ] ] );

window
The logical name of the window.

String
The text to locate. To specify a literal, case sensitive string, enclose the string in quotation marks. Alternatively, you can specify the name of a string variable. The value of the string variable can include a regular expression (the regular expression need not begin with an exclamation mark).

search_area
The region of the object to search, relative to the window. This area is defined as a pair of coordinates, with x1, y1, x2, y2 specifying any two diagonally opposite corners of the rectangular search region. If this parameter is not defined, then the entire window specified is considered the search area.

string_def
Defines how the text search is performed. If no string_def is specified, (0 or FALSE, the default parameter), the interpreter searches for a complete word only. If 1, or TRUE, is specified, the search is not restricted to a single, complete word.

Winrunner Question 82: Which TSL functions you will use for getting the location of the text string?

Which TSL functions you will use for getting the location of the text string?

win_find_text ( window, string, result_array [, search_area [, string_def ] ] );


window     
The logical name of the window to search.

string     
The text to locate. To specify a literal, case sensitive string, enclose the string in quotation marks. Alternatively, you can specify the name of a string variable. The value of the string variable can include a regular expression. The regular expression should not include an exclamation mark (!), however, which is treated as a literal character. For more information regarding Regular Expressions, refer to the "Using Regular Expressions" chapter in your User's Guide.

result_array     
The name of the output variable that stores the location of the string as a four-element array.

search_area     
The region of the object to search, relative to the window. This area is defined as a pair of coordinates, with x1,y1,x2,y2 specifying any two diagonally opposite corners of the rectangular search region. If this parameter is not defined, then the entire window is considered the search area.

string_def     
Defines how the text search is performed. If no string_def is specified, (0 or FALSE, the default parameter), the interpreter searches for a complete word only. If 1, or TRUE, is specified, the search is not restricted to a single, complete word.

Winrunner Question 81: Which TSL functions you will use for Searching text on the window?

Which TSL functions you will use for Searching text on the window?

find_text ( string, out_coord_array, search_area [, string_def ] );

string
The string that is searched for.The string must be complete, contain no spaces, and it must be preceded and followed by a space outside the quotation marks. To specify a literal, case-sensitive string, enclose the string in quotation marks. Alternatively, you can specify the name of a string variable. In this case, the string variable can include a regular expression.

out_coord_array
The name of the array that stores the screen coordinates of the text (see explanation below).

search_area
The area to search, specified as coordinates x1,y1,x2,y2. These define any two diagonal corners of a rectangle. The interpreter searches for the text in the area defined by the rectangle.

string_def
Defines the type of search to perform. If no value is specified, (0 or FALSE, the default), the search is for a single complete word only. When 1, or TRUE, is specified, the search is not restricted to a single, complete word.

Winrunner Question 79: Explain Get Text checkpoint web text checkpoint with syntax?

Explain Get Text checkpoint web text checkpoint with syntax?

  • We use web_obj_text_exists function for web text checkpoints.

web_obj_text_exists ( object, table_row, table_column, text_to_find [, text_before, text_after] );

  • Object - The logical name of the object to search.

  • table_row - If the object is a table, it specifies the location of the row within a table. The string is preceded by the character¬† #.

  • table_column - If the object is a table, it specifies the location of the column within a table. The string is preceded by the character¬† #.

  • text_to_find - The string that is searched for.

  • text_before  - Defines the start of the search area for a particular text string.

  • text_after - Defines the end of the search area for a particular text string.
