    I am testing an import process. While recording i need to open a notepad from my machine and copy the text there and need to paste it to the webpage. How can i do this in telerik test studio?

    Thanks

    Hello Ajai,

    Where is the data coming from that will be loaded into Notepad? I am thinking of a slightly similar more direct approach... use a coded step to grab the data directly from the data source (file, DB, etc.) and enter it into the form of your web application. This bypasses launching Notepad and trying to use the clipboard for copy & paste, which can be a very unreliable error prone process.

    All the best,

    Note pad is stored in the shared drive. That is a txt file generated by another system. So i need to open that notepad and import copy and paste to web page and verify whether all the value is displaying in proper columns.

    If you can provide email i can send the video screenshot what i am doing.
