CUITe Object Recorder does not record the pop ups windows

Jan 14, 2014 at 8:25 PM

The web application I am working with has a login page, which I can easily record with Object Recorder. But, once I log into the application, the landing page (and everything thereafter) starts in a new page. Is there any way to record the new pop windows using Object Recorder? Manually recording the Object would take a lot of time and would defeat the purpose. Please help.

I have been grabbing the URL for the new window & then pasting that in the recorder and continuing on with my actions from that point onwards.

Thanks for the response. I tried to do the same. But, the way my application works, directly using the URL wont work for me. I have to go through the log in window and then select and child window. Is there a way to do so ?

Here are two ways you can get the URL of the pop-up window:
  1. Press F11 to maximize the window and the address bar will be displayed. Press F11 again to restore the window to its original size.
  2. Right-click in the pop-up window and select Properties. The URL will appear in the Address field.
Then you can just paste the address of the pop-up window into the CUITe Object Recorder's Address field.

My application does not recognize direct URLs like that. Actually, the browser used by CUITe's Object Recorder does not even load the above mentioned pop-up page completely (might be because of the ActiveX controls required to load the page). I wonder if there is a way to record UIMap from IE itself - the way CodedUI does. That is a critical functionality which actually brings CUITe way closer to CodedUI. Please let me know if that is possible.

Thanks for your help and time on this matter,
Kay :)

Hi Kay,

CUITe is built on top of Microsoft's Coded UI Test framework.

So you can record actions using Visual Studio's built-in Coded UI test recorder and then manually convert it to CUITe.
