    I have read other postings that Flash is not really supported in Test Studio... at least a couple of years ago. Others have proposed ideas on how to do blink clicks, etc.I know I can't use image verification,

    However, as a performance monitoring tool, we want to time the loading of pages. The page has a Flash header on it and the time that it takes to load and starts to play is to be considered part of the loading time.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Brian,

    There appears to be no easy way to detect when the flash movie has started playing. In doing a little research I came across this.
    https://code.google.com/p/swfobject/
    It appears to be a JavaScript API you could use for detecting and manipulating flash on your web page. If I were you I would pursue that avenue.

    Kind regards,
