Alternative Player
In this video I will talk about scanning application's user intrerface using controls available in the GUI Map of ZAPTEST. To scan an application for the first time, please click on the large Scan GUI button. Hold down CTRL key and use your mouse if you need to bring your application in focus, Then click the camera image or anywhere else inside the application window you need to scan. On this dialog user can specify name for the new application object. On the next dialog user can specify name for a new View. After scanning, ZAPTEST creates application and view objects, and displays View image inside expanded GUI Map panel. To scan another page , a user needs to click Scan Application UI button located on the top left corner of the GUI Map. If you are scanning different window or dialog of your application, you can choose to create new application object, otherwise select existing one. Now you can specify name for the new View object, and press Create button. If you need to scan scrollable page and have all its objects in a single view, during the scan, please press Arrow Down image. Alternatevely you can hold ALT key and click anywehere inside the application window. ZAPTEST will automatically scroll your page, and generate single View. User can easily navigate to any view by selecting its thumbnail in the Project View... or by clicking its object in Repository Explorer. Any new view includes all text and image objects captured using standard scanning mode. If I need to keep only few of the objects, I can locate them in the GUI Map and check them in the Repository explorer... ...Then by using right-click context menu of the view, I can delete all remaining un-selected objects. In order to add missing test objects into the same view, I can re-scan the view. For this I need to Scan Application displaying same page. On the Create New View Object dialog I click the button to expand view properties,... Find my view in the list, and from Updating Type list I select "Keep Existing Objects and Scan for New Objects" item. In case I want to discard existing objects from my view, I could select second item - "Remove All Existing Objects" Next I click Update View button, and YES to confirm. After scanning, ZAPTEST will add all missing objects to the existing View. In order to update application's image stored with a view, I can also do re-scan. To do this I need to press Scan Application UI button, and scan changed application window. On the Create New View Object dialog I expand view properties,... Find my view in the list, and from Updating Type list I select "Just Update The View Image" item. Click Update View button, and Yes to confirm. ZAPTEST updates image only, and keeps list of the objects intact. From the GUI Map a user can choose scanning mode to capture Multiline or Block OCR objects. To scan for Blocks I need to click the arrow next to Scan Application UI button, and select Scan Blocks. I can create new view or use existing one. ZAPTEST identifies all text blocks on the page, and adds them to the list of objects. To scan for Multiline objects I need to click the arrow next to Scan Application UI button, and select Scan Multiline. Here I can make new view or use existing one. ZAPTEST identifies all multiline text objects on the scanned page, and adds them to the list of objects.
