Hi

I'm trying to automated UI tests against a popup heavy Web abb. I can manually run and record the tests but they 'hang' on execution.

Test results report fail at "23/03/2011 13:36:12' - 'Fail' : 12. Connect to pop-up window : 'http://www"

I can statically open the URL, so I don't believe it is a dynamic URL causing the issue. I've tried isPartial on and off without benefit.

Hello Andrew,

Please send us a screen shot of what your popup looks like. We recently discovered an issue with HTML popup windows displayed in a certain format. We have a fix for these that will be included in our next major release (currently scheduled around May). I can confirm whether or not this fix will take care of your problem simply by looking at your particular popup. You should be able to attach it as a file to this forum thread.

Kind regards,
Cody

Hi

I've attached a pic of the frame, I've had to edit the content due to the confidential nature of the site.

The page is aspx

Thanks

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for the screenshot. I was hoping I could spot something right away, but I didn't see anything obvious (don't worry about the edits you made, they didn't hide what I needed to see). Can you ask your developers for the JavaScript that opens that window? It's usually something like:

window.open("http://www.google.com", "google", "status=1,toolbar=1,location=0");

I will take your JavaScript and see if I can replicate this problem then confirm our upcoming release will fix it for you.

All the best,
Cody

Here goes...

if (viewLink != null)
                            {
                                maintenanceLink += string.Format("&msk={0}", Guid.NewGuid());
                                viewLink.NavigateUrl = "javascript: window.open('" + maintenanceLink + "', '" + windowName + "', '" + InspectorWindowOptions + "'); void(0)";
                            }

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for the JavaScript sample. It is almost everything I need. In the sample you provided, it refers to the variable "InspectorWindowOptions". I also need to know what value this variable is set to at the time your popup window opens. These options are where we know we have troubles (depending on what they are set to). Any way you can get this information for me?

This should be it:

Hi Andrew,

I put together a test page based on your code and did not run into any problems. I can only conclude that something else is going on that we don't yet understand. I'd like to look at this problem on your machine via GoToMeeting. Let me know when you've available and I'll setup the meeting. I work in Austin (CST) so something 9am - 5pm CST works best for me.

Due to security reasons I can't share my screen externally.

What do you think the likelyhood is that the problems will be resolved in the next release and when is this release due?

I will look at unstalling IE 8 and reverting to IE 7, though as I'm on Win 7, IE 8 is the default.

I tried the test again and I still get the following error:

'06/04/2011 10:55:21' - 'Pass' : 3. Keyboard (KeyPress) - Tab (1 times) on 'ContentPlaceHolder1Login1UxPwdPassword'
'06/04/2011 10:55:21' - 'Pass' : 4. Set 'ContentPlaceHolder1Login1UxPwdPassword' text to '#######'
'06/04/2011 10:55:22' - 'Pass' : 5. Click 'ContentPlaceHolder1Login1CmdLoginImage'
'06/04/2011 10:55:22' - 'Pass' : 6. Click 'NewLink'

Hello Andrew,

Our next major release is due out the last week of April or the first week of May. As for the chance this release will fix your problem, since I was unable to reproduce your problem I have little confidence it will, maybe a 50% chance. Only if I can reproduce the problem can I give you any real level of confidence the next release will solve it for you.

If it would help we are willing to sign an NDA with you in order for us to work together more on this problem. We have done that with a few of our other customers due to privacy issues.

Hi

Do you think this issues is less likely to occur if I upgrade to IE9?

Also do you have a confirmed date for the release?

Thanks

Hi Andrew,

No, upgrading to IE 9 will not improve things for the problem you are describing. We work just as well with IE7 and IE 8 (if not better) as we do with IE 9. We actually had to make some changes to our code to be compatible with IE 9. Microsoft changed quite a few things on us... but we believe we found and fixed all the problems we had with IE 9. Those fixes are included in our latest internal build, 2011.3.1607.

Our upcoming R1 release us due to be released by the end of this month. I don't have an exact date, but expect to see it before May 1. It's looking pretty good (I've seen private internal builds) and we're just putting the polish on it now and giving it a thorough and rugged QA cycle.

Hi Andrew,

I am sorry you continue to have problems with your popup windows. Our 2011 R1 release is available from download from our main download page. If you continue to have problems, the only way I'll be able to assist further is to be able to actually see the application are you dealing with and how the problem manifests using our tool. This is best done via a web based screen sharing tool like GoToMeeting. We are willing to sign an NDA with you if this is required by your organization.

One possibility I can think of is that the URL of the popup keeps changing everytime you run the test. We determine which popup to connect to by the URL of the popup window. Sometimes web applications bury some dynamically changing component within the URL, something like a session ID or such. It this possibly happening there?

Cody

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for the error log. It shows one thing I suspect may be causing the problem. It's from this line:

Fail' : 10. Connect to pop-up window : 'http://www.###########.uk/######/Maintenance/SearchLink.aspx?object=Holding&pid=4142&hid=26477&msk=bd2fce15-f445-4879-8c7a-ca935012fa58'

The part I have highlighted looks just like a GUID. I am guessing this value changes every time this popup window opens. Try trimming the URL and setting IsURLPartial to true, as shown in the attached screenshot.

Hi

We have been testing with some various type of popups to get to a root cause of the issue.

No direct success yet, but we have found 2 'issues'.

1) A system runtime error when navigating to new page in IE9 - see attached 9:16,

2) How Cue Tips are handled in execution. During record they pop up on screen, During execution they open full screen - see 2 attached screenshots 9:23 & 9:24

Hi

We have been investigating popups and partial urls and noticed different behaviour for some popups.
We continue to investigate but have noticed that partial URLs are more reliable if cut down to the lenght of the field in Test Studio.
Also, Partial URLs is selected by default. It is more reliable if this is deselected before editing the url, then reselecting it.

Thanks

Hi
Could you please advise on the following?
As far as you can see, do you recognise any reasons Test Studio would handle these 2 partial links differently?

http://www.####.###.###.###.uk/####/####.aspx?object=####&vsid=


and

http://www.####.###.###.###.uk/####/Maintenance/SearchLink.aspx?object=####&pid=

The first can be executed and the second not :-S
Is there a max length to URLS?
Thanks

Hi Andrew,
       you state that:
The first can be executed and the second not :-S
Would you please clarify this.

I suspected the issue might be caused by the .Net logic we use and not by some implementation specific to WebUI Test Studio.
The culprit is the URI class:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.uri.aspx
more specifically as taken from the article:

•   By default, any reserved characters in the URI are escaped in accordance with RFC 2396. This behavior changes if International Resource Identifiers or International Domain Name parsing is enabled in which case reserved characters in the URI are escaped in accordance with RFC 3986 and RFC 3987.
As part of canonicalization in the constructor for some schemes, escaped representations are compacted. The schemes for which URI will compact escaped sequences include the following: file, http, https, net.pipe, and net.tcp. For all other schemes, escaped sequences are not compacted. For example: if you percent encode the two dots ".." as "%2E%2E" then the URI constructor will compact this sequence for some schemes. For example, the following code sample shows a URI constructor for the http scheme.
Copy
 Uri uri = new Uri("http://myUrl/%2E%2E/%2E%2E"); Console.WriteLine(uri.AbsoluteUri); Console.WriteLine(uri.PathAndQuery);
When this code is executed, it returns the following output with the escaped sequence compacted.
Copy

It's hard to say since most characters in the provided URLs are coded (######).

All the best,
Stoich

Hi

Thank you for this. I'll ask our technical team to look into the URL class.
With regards to the 2 URLS;

The first "http://www.####.###.###.###.uk/####/####.aspx?object=####&vsid=" can be accessed during execution with partial URL enabled.

The second "http://www.####.###.###.###.uk/####/Maintenance/SearchLink.aspx?object=####&pid=" results in the can not connect error seen earlier in this thread.

The # represent alpha characters that make up the URL.

I can see no reason for the tool to handle these URLs differently, can you?

Kind regards

Hi Andrew,

We would need a local repro to understand why you can connect to the first URL but not the second. On the surface I cannot see any reason why one works but not the other.

Hi

I have been able to 'fudge' a connection by adding delays and shorterning the URL down from:

http://www.###########.uk/######/Maintenance/SearchLink.aspx?object=Holding&pid=4142&hid=26477&msk=889889ID

to:

http://www.###########.uk/######/Maintenance/

However I am now unable to connect to tabs within the popup as the link is identified as 'NAME.link' when recorded

Is there a way to directly specify links?

Thanks

Hello Andrew,

Just to document the outcome of our GoToMeeting today:

We found that the links of your application are using dynamically generated GUID's in the href attribute. Since our find logic was relying on the href's containing static GUID's we were failing with "element not found". Once we stripped these GUID's and switched to a "contains" instead of  "exact" then the test started working as expected.

The 'trick' is to edit the element in expert view and use the ~ symbol for the HREF compare.

Hi Andrew,

We are doing a study on how we can improve our recording so we automatically ignore things like GUID's. Could you help us with that effort by sending us a copy of the HTML that contains these GUID's? If you could load up the page in IE then simply right click on it and View Source then send us the source, that would really help us to better understand where/how GUID's are being used in your application.
