  1. Hi,

    My application is in Web based JavaScript application and QTP 11 does not seem to recognize its objects.
    I do low level recording to start.

    What needs to be installed to make it working or what is the workaround to work on java script applications.

    Your website is amazing, I am able to improve my scripts by reading your blogs.
    I ran into a problem where I couldnt find any past references in your blog.
    I want to click on an “OK” button during recording, but when I executed the test it did not click.
    Also I tried to recognize the object using Object Spy, the object does not have any native properties, although it does have identification properties, can I some how use the identification properties to address qtp to click the ok button, if so how would syntax look. I will appreciate if you can help. thanks

  29. This note is to answer 415# Ajay Kumar. Yes you can use software tools to convert a .pdf file to a word document. The software tool can be controlled or directed through QTP by using Invoke statements. A good software tool is Nuance PDF Converter–I use version 6 but version 7 is also available at this time. But as Ankur has suggested there are many freewares available to convert .pdf files to Word or to convert .pdf files to Notepad.

  50. Need your help with Flex and QTP. I have check boxes, that get recorded but when I run it back, it fails as the objects are not in the OR. The reason being that the automationidedex changes everytime. I want to remove this property, so I went to Tools -> Object Identification. Environment – Flex 4.5.0, I can’t add/remove the mandatory properties. The Ordinal identifier is also greyed out. How can I get it enabled for Flex? It is enabled for Standard Windows and Web, but not for Flex. Thanks in advance.

  64. Hi Guys,

    I was experiencing similar problems trying to record web applications using QTP 11 on Windows Vista. I was getting this error:

    “Browser Application can’t be launched.. Possibly URL is wrong.”

    But got a answer which is simple enough, please do the following to record Web Applications

    1. Ensure: IE – Internet Options > security settings – Enable Security checkbox is TICKED

    2. Ensure: Particular URL is allowed on Privacy Tab – Sites – under IE > Internet Options

    3. Ensure: If Using VISTA, Launch QTP latest Vxx: Run as Administrator prior to launch of IE

    4. Ensure: If Using VISTA, Launch IE latest Vxx: Run as Administrator after to launch of QTP Latest version
    Ensure: Web Add-in is only ticked if recording Web Applications

    Hope this works for you guys.

  76. Hi Ankur,

    Do you have any idea on automating PowerBuilder application Using QTP.
    we have huge scripts developed for years(7 years) using WinRunner tool, now the tool life is ended and our PB also upgraded to PB 11.5 Version.

    I googled and found that there are 2 options.

    1. third party migration tools
    2. developing scripts in QTP from scratch

    I guess Option 1 is Very Expensive compared to the man work efforts used in Option 2.

    So which version of QTP supports PB 11.5 and what additional taks need to be done.We need to do a POC.
    apart from PB Addin what else we ne need to install. Actually i need the exact infirmation as I have to provide this to our client who contacts HP Team and take care of Installation and everything.

    suggestions and infirmation on this matter would be appreciated.

  79. Hi Ankur,

    I’m one of the follower of your blog and it is really helped me a lot in the better understanding on QTP. Last few days I’m struggling in automating the web tables, on this I need your help to clear my view point.

    Scenario: I recorded the web page in which there is few web tabs and under each tab there are web tables. My object is to fetch the data from the web table and import in the excel sheet where as my approach is to read entire data of each tab and then move into the next tab. Problem I’m facing is, the script run perfectly for the first tab but after that either it didn’t find the object in the second tab or escape the middle tabs. My observation in this is as the web page is not having a table name so this problem is occurring but I guess this would be a common mistake done in the development process and QTP would have better solution in this front which I’m not coming into.

    Your few minutes will definitely change our view point on the QTP.

    Thanks a lot for reading our problem.

  95. Hi ankur

    I read you blog and I found it very interesting. I have around 2 year experience in manual testing of mobile device. I want to learn some automation tool to expand my career. The thing is I dont have any experience in programming language. I know little bit of SQL and VB script. I really want to learn some automation tool so that I can go in automation testing field. Can you please suggest me from where should I start to learn that tool. I also read on google , that I can use that tool for testing mobile device. So I got more interest in learing that tool. Please suggest me where should I start.

    Thanks

    About QTP Certification.
    1. First register with the HP .Then once you are registered you will get your user name and password throught email and then you are able to login to HP web site.
    2. Then apply for the HP portal learner ID with HP. You will get this after about a week.
    3. Then you have to look for the pro metric centers in your location. You have to take this learner ID and you can appear for the test.

    In Noida there is one center where I have appeared in sec 8 HCL.

    For more details contact me at my email id.

  121. Hi
    Ujjawal. To tell to more about the certifications in testing , I need to know more about your career profile like how many years of Exp. do you have. What all kind of testing you have done etc:-

    Now a days the tester’s can really explore some very good opportunity.

    1. Like there are lot to do in SAP Testing.
    2. Lot of oppurtunities are there in Security testing as all are moving towards cloud based applications and SAAS .
    3. WEB service testing.

    So apart from QTP its best if you can do Java certification.
    That will certainly help you in future.
    Also can look for the Load runner certification.

  137. Hello Guys!
    Have anyone tried using QTP 10 or 9.2, 9.5 with Adobe Flex 3.0 with Java Wicket Framework.
    My team, here faced a serious problem while playback for the Test scripts. The QTP Performance is very slow while running the test scripts in flex 3.0 screens. Later we tried to execute the Patch provided by HP for the same. But Performance is still a key concern for us. It takes arround 2 minutes to perform a node creation which a manual user can peform in less than 0.5 mins.
    I would really appreciate for any pointers to the problem.

    Note: while looking out the solution to the issue, Looks like Adobe has fixed this issue in Flex 4.0 (Autmation Library) However, our application is compiled to run on Flex 3.0.

    Our developers are thinking about replacing ProfUi with any other GUI framework like BCGSoft or QT.But seems like those are also not supported by QTP.

    Can you help me on finding a work around or any other UI framework to replace ProfUI which is recognized by QTP?

Is there is any plan by you to star a online training sessions on QTP with the real time web based application instead of windows based application. People like us have wasted so much money by going to institutes for QTP where they will just give an overview on QTP and skip the main topics like scripting… OR like weekly one topic material indepth about the topic.

    • A couple of points you may want to check:
      1) See if capture level is set properly for Active Screen settings.
      2) You would need to place the cursor on the particular object to see the corresponding Active Screen.

    The code in init-script.vbs file is as follows:

    Set App = CreateObject(“QuickTest.Application”)
    App.Launch
    App.Visible = True
    ‘ScriptPath = “F:\Test\Script\QTP-Script”
    App.WindowState = “Maximized” ‘Maximize the QuickTest window
    App.ActivateView “ExpertView” ‘Display the Expert View
    App.Open “..\Script\QTP-Script”, True

    I am trying to verify the position of a web button in a page.
    I.e. Its alignment (whether in the left or right hand side). When i added the object to the object rep it doesn’t list the X and Y axis. So please let me know any alternate way to verify this test scenario.

    Thanks in advance

    I’m my above comment,please find the text

    ” txt1=-xmlDoc.selectSingleNode(”TerminalConfiguration”).attributes.item(2).text ”

    Here “TerminalConfiguration” is node in xml sheet. This node has lot of attributes in it. And I needed extract some values. So I used the code posted in the previous comment. It worked in my scenario.

    See if you could send a sample of ur XML file. It would be easy to figure out what to do.

  193. Hi,

    This is in reply to above post/commet given by prashant for xml files.

    Prashant I see that you are trying to compare entire xml file with some pre-defined xml file.

    I would suggest trying to compare individual values of attribute/ element in the xml files instead of comparing the entire xml.

    Try this out….

    Set xmlDoc = CreateObject(“Msxml2.DOMDocument”)
    xmlDoc.Load(filename)

    txt1=-xmlDoc.selectSingleNode(“TerminalConfiguration”).attributes.item(2).text

    this way i extracted each value of the attribute in xml.

    I had xml file with attributes and the above method worked out form me.

  194. I am comparing two xml based on Strings
    I have an issue could you let me know if u can
    1. Loading expected XML – Loads only
    2. Getting Actual XML – QTP Creates and Stores
    3. Comparing two XML – Not able to compare because of utf format
    Is there any way where I can change the setting in QTP9.0 in order to create actual xml in utf 8
    Or is there any way where I can load expected xml utf 16

    Answering the query as it’s obvious one :).
    Well you can do very basic stuff without knowing programming and going through QTP tutorial in detail but ‘decriptive’ programming requires knowledge on VBScript, also connecting to any external API it will be a lot beneficial. Suggest you to start learning the technical side as well, starting point will be VB script.

    So you have to work through remote desktop connection.

    Though people do rdc recording all the time without any problems but answering your question, this is what I can think off the top of my head now…

    1) You have to be always dependent on the remote desktop availability.

    2) System will run sluggish vis-a-vis if you were recording the same scripts on your system

    3) Having concurrent license mean anyone in your team would be able to access the license.

    Please use QTP Forums for further questions.

  291. hey.,
    i’ve been working on Clarify thick client. i’m on testing part of it. we get requirements and have deployment almost every month, and before the changes go live we need to do the regression testing, which is really a pain and takes nearly a week to complete.

    can you please suggest any tools to automate testing of thick client applications. does QTP facilitate the same.??
    if yes can you give some directions on how to.

    any response will be highly appreciated.

    thanks in advance.

  298. Nice question Yacine. We have something called as “Business Process Testing” build on top of QTP and comes with Quality Center as an add-on. This should address your concern.

    For further questions, I request you and everybody else to use QTP Forums [http://www.learnqtp.com/forums/]

  299. Hi All !
    Thanks for this fantastic blog !
    I have just got the trial version of QTP running on my machine and start already going through the handbook .
    In fact i would like to have your opinion regarding the following :
    QTP is of the type of record and playback
    which i think its not nice at all ,if the future system will be build under
    Agile / scrum methodology meaning that the automated tester using it
    for example has to wait till “premature” system is running then he can start testing : in other words the automated tester relies heavily on the output of programmers ( Quality Assurance is not done correctly if you imagine that the requirement was not implemented correctly hence the automated tester wont
    see it.( might require Manual testing before starting the automation one )

    In the other hand httpunit gives the opportunity to the
    automated tester to build his test cases at early stage based on the
    requirement rather then on the system (even before implementation ).
    Here it guide the developer to test his work before committing his changes .
    I guess as QA person the job will be done better with this kind of software.

    With record and playback its more easy doesnt require to learn coding

    I would like to have your opinions if i see things with right glasses

    Thanks Again

  301. Hi Ankur,

    I just came across your website today.Good job Ankur and keep up the good work.
    I have been attending interviews for 2+ exp in Testing(includes 1 year-QTP). I’m quite good in QTP concepts. The problem i’m facing is that they are giving me some scenarios and asking me to write scripts on them or atleast explain them how my approach is going to be programitacally (The scenarios were mainly mails related or calendar).I have been practising on it. I have seen lots of QTP interview qsns on various websites but never come across the scenarios that i was refering to.It would be of great help if you could give me such scenarios that you know or kind of those normally asked in interviews. This will help me to prepare myself better.

    regards,

    I didn’t know where to post my question, but I need an answer at the earliest.
    Hoping you are a right person to ask.
    I’m totally new to automation and QTP.
    In my organisation, they would like to know whether QTP can handle something they want and if so then they will buy and use QTP for it.
    They just want me to find out whether QTP can take user id/ pwd info from a file / place and try to enter into different screens /applications , log into them using the info and save screen shots of the web page logged in(actually we need to find out whether it can save multiple page application i.e., with scroll)and repeat it for ‘n’ number of different applications.
    Can we do it with QTP?

    I am currently using QTP 9.1 trial version with concurrent lisence. I have to access an application (based of SOA architecture)through CITRIX metaframe presentation server. I have installed QTP 9.1 locally on my machine and am facing the problem in object recognition. I have gone through the discussion earlier which says that you need to have tool and application in the same server but then as because the application is on a different server and installaing QTP in that server is not possible due to restrictions. Is there any other way by which it can be done. Use of addins or some programming. Please suggest.

  340. No Ankur it doesn’t work using DP bcoz u need an object at the first place to define its properties. Wat I m trying is picking up object class, object name & its one unique property from excel. Not sure whether it is possible. Another way out may be using classes. But there I m whirling around let, set & get properties.
    Alternatively, there might be any function to create user defined objects that can be mapped to web objects?
    Or something else I can’t think of?
    Any solution! But I Need It!

  341. @ Anon: An easier way out for your Q is use DP for the given object you wish to get from excel. Also I am not really sure whether assignment operator works this way, try using Set instead.

  342. @ Kumar(1): Property Values pair can be used this way “Property1:=Name1”, “Property2:=Name2″,”Property3:=Name3” that is give the property name and its value comma separated.

    @ Kumar(2): For dynamic value,in your case I see that only way out is iteration,

    i)Run the test few times
    ii) note down each and every property-value pair.
    iii) Check for the similarity in them( the one which remains constant)
    iv) Use the similar values as the property for the given onject.

    Regarding the name property of image I see that “Main” word is always appearing. So here you can use regular Expression .*Main.*

  346. Hi Ankur,
    I am having an image control in my page which property is changing dynamically very rapidly. So QTP doesn’t able to recognize uniquely. Sometimes IMAGE Control’s index value is 2, 5, 8 or 3 .And its name is also changing like “ctl00$cphMain$00089f4892064ffd”, “ctl00$cphMain$a5e3515bfd17437b”etc that’s why I could not pass unique description. Image control count is not constant its number keep changing.
    So my main concern is how to identify which property remains CONSTANT for dynamic changing object? I am trying to use object spy still unable to indentify the same. One more thing I am adding that object to OR to see which property remains constant but still cant make out.
    So just let me know couples of step to indentify constant property for dynamic changing object such that QTP identify the control uniquely?

    I am pasting the code here

    Browser (“B_LookUp”).Page(“B_LookUp “).WebEdit(“txtboxsearch”).Set “XYZ”
    Browser (“B_LookUp”).Page(“B_LookUp “).WebButton(“btn_search”).Click

    Browser (“B_LookUp”).Page(“B_LookUp 2”). WebButton (“btn_clear”).Click

    Browser (“B_LookUp”).Page(“B_LookUp 3”).WebEdit(“txtboxsearch “).Set “ABC”
    Browser (“B_LookUp”).Page(“B_LookUp _3”).Image(“btn_search”).Click

    how to export excel sheet data into quality center

    Reply
  358. @ Anon:

    1) The best and the quickest way to find which add-in should be used is to ask the application team developers. Once that is known, install the add-in and do some sample scripting to see (and possibly resolve) the issues you get out of using it.

    2) There are 3 add-ins which are shipped by default with QTP namely Web, Active X and VB. If you are working on any application built through normal HTML coding then only web add-in would suffice but if any app is built using SAP , Java or .NET technology then you would require SAP , Java or .NET add-in respectively.

    3) It depends on the scenario in which you are working. Some documents I can suggest are:

    i) Automation Test Plan: Can cover time lines, framework, info regarding repository for storing and accessing scripts.
    ii) Manual Test case doc having test cases and navigation of the app clearly defined.

    iii) Application Data

  359. Hi Ankur,

    First of all tons of thanks for the work that you are carryings on your strong shoulder .You really deserve pat. Hat off to you my brother.
    I have a big question for you it might be very small, but for me it’s like climbing to Mount Everest. I have been moved to QTP Testing from 2 years of .NET rigorous development. It’s not because of I was incapable to code, but because of Personal Inspiration. I got QTP project in my company since I knew VB Scripting very profoundly. And I now learned QTP tool very well I got trained on QTP 9.2.Now its like marriage of VB Scripting and QTP Tool with me.

    Problem:–I am the only resource for QTP in my project. Could you please let me know what all thing I need to know to start the project. I will just give some pointers here.

    1>How do decide which add-in in needed to install for my application to enhance the functionality of object recognisation.Do we have any quick check what addin is required to proceed ahead by just knowing the application

    2> When we say web add in is shipped by default with QTP .Then what exactly it implies. I will just share my knowledge here if I am wrong just rectify me. I think any application that could navigated (opened) through internet explorer is termed as web application for this why we require any extra Add in. But again I am contradicting myself suppose I am having SAP application as my web application ,Java Application as a web application definitely default add in is not suffice to recognize all this universal set of object. So the web addin, that is shipped with QTP recognizes which type of object? And what exactly Web Application specifies here. As far I know suppose any application built using .NET and if I am opening that through url then there is no prerequisite of installing .NET while navigating that application.)

    We have tried it in 7-8 lab machines and the probelm still persists. This is really an interesting problem I have ever seen. The application is only restricted to be used the Target intranet. As you are in Bangalore, can we have a telecon sometimes today or monday about the issue?

  365. Hi Ankur,
    After closing the Visual C++ run time error box the app[PeopleSoft IE browser] crashes alongwith parent IE Browser. So no question arises of using recovery scenario.
    The second thought is true and memory hogging happens. Observing through the Task Manager, we got know that the process memory [in memory] is not consuming more than 800 MB at any particular point of time as it is getting released from time to time during the execution. The commit charge [paging] memory only accumulated and never getting released. I feel, to overcome this scenario, a script (Wscript) which releases paging memory can be of help.
    I explored all possible sources and did not find any code for VM release which I could run in a frequent interval [may be after every 2 transactions] during script run.
    I can send you some snapshots, if you can provide your mail ID.

  366. @ Skumar: You need to find out one unique property. Have you tried using “Location” ordinal identifier?

    @ Niranjan : After closing the Visual C++ run time error box does your app behave normally or it crashes? If it behaves normally you
    can check for the existence of run time error box and close it programatically or can use recovery scenario.

    On second thought this issue appears to be related to memory hogging. Try to free up your RAM as much as possible, especially while test is running.
    Have you tried it on some other machine?

  367. Hi Ankur,
    I have got an unresolved issue of QTP 9.2 with Peoplesoft.
    QTP Version- 9.1
    Addins used- Web and PeopleSoft
    PeopleSoft Addin version- 8.2
    Framework- Data driven & Modular framework
    Problem- The PeopleSoft application is being crashed every time at the 3rd or 4th dataset producing an Visual C++ RunTime error. The same test case is scripted in WinRunner and in that case it does not produce any Run Time Error even if we executed more than 20 datasets. Could you suggest us what are the the bottlenecks for QTP and PeopleSoft combinations? We had referred Mercury knowledge base and it suggested minimizing and maximizing the People Soft application after execution of each record, so that it can release some memory and the application crash can be avoided. This did not help us at all.
    Could you let us know, if you have any solution for this?
    Thanks in advance.

    @ Anon1 asked: During web testing, the values changes dynamically….whats the logic for VB Script to tick the Checkboxes depending on the condition

    You can simply use if then else or case select statements.

    @ Deepa: Please refer my post Descriptive Programming Simplified

    @ Ramya: When I took the exam QTP certification was of two types, CPS (Certified Product Specialist) and CPC (Certified Product Consultant). For CPS, The questions were all MCQ’s type. They will not ask you to write the scripts for CPS. I would suggest to have a fair amount of hands-on experience before taking this exam.

    @ Subu: Its the same way as you create the normal connection strings but for DB2 you need to make sure that after creating the connection string, you remove all the information from it except for the DSN, username, and password.

    @ Skumar: As you said searching with different names yields different rows. You need to dynamically find the no of rows at run time for a given query and then use a for loop, with its max value as that dynamic value.

  370. Hi Ankur,

    I am facing a problem in qtp. I needed your help.The problem is in our web application when we search for say a user(eg users starting with “a”) we will get a list of user with “a”. Now for each rows there will be a radio button and a checkbox. First i need to select the radio button and then check box then click delete/modify user. Now using scripting i am able to automate for the first record only i am not able to repeat the same for many rows as searching with different names yields different rows. SO can you suggest how i need to overcome this issue. Can you give u r mail id/contact id. mine is sharath.mnsk@yahoo.com

  384. @ Breathing Thoughts…Thanks!

    Regarding your question, Ideally as soon as you click on the hand icon it should minimize all QTP windows but if it is occurring you can press ctrl key, the hand pointer will convert into mouse pointer where you can manually minimize the required windows then release the ctrl key mouse pointer will again convert back to hand.

  385. Here is one problem that i am facing which i feel is related more to the QTP settings than the application i am testing.

    i want to record any pop up window that may occur while the QTP is running. This pop up is not something that appears in normal flow and hence it is not recorded in original script.
    for this we can use Scenario Manager.

    after opening the scenario manager, i click on Pop Up checkbox which forwards me to next page where there is a “pointing finger” option which i am suppose to use to click on the header of the application. for this when i click on the “pointing finger” all other windows including that of the QTP should get minimized so that i can click on the header of the pop up and capture the text and error message that it shows.
    but it is not happening in my case.
    Here QTP’s main window do not get minimised the way it should and hence i cant click on the application.

    is there any setting in QTP which is preventing main window from minimizing??? how do i solve this problem?
    i closed all other windows thinking that it might me creating trouble and kept only QTP and my Application active, still the problem is persistent.

    do let me know if i need to change any settings.
    Thanks in advance 🙂

    PS: i am using QTP 9.0 version.

    this indeed is the best blog for QTP users, especially beginners like me.
    i have not been given any training for QTP. what all little things i can do with QTP is my own R&D, though it works for simpler things, i face problems when i have bigger problems to tackle.
    and this blog have been useful in terms of directly searching for the solution than going topic by topic which demands more time which i dont have at the moment.
    thanks again for estimable effort.

    By concepts I mean, you should clarify the smallest of doubt regarding QTP before appearing for the exam from support site.
    Regarding your 2nd Q: The passing marks are 70% and no of questions will not be 70 but “ll be 40.Also learn the demo client-server application provided with QTP installation, they ask one debugging question from that generally.You will get 4 hrs to answer the questions.

    Best of luck!

  413. Hi Ankz,
    For the Mercury QTP cert…as far as i know there are very few people from India who go for certification on their own…My suggestion is to ask the Testing dept in your org…generally Mercury conducts exam in the org premises itself, if it finds the no of test takers tobe adequate enough.If at all you wish to go on your own, you can contact the local Indian cell of Mercury…details of which can be found on Training and Certification link i have given on my blog

    Regarding CSTE, it will definitely be an add-on to your Resume considering you have 1.5 yrs of exp …while studying for exam( though it becomes boring sometimes–all theory!!!)..you will get to learn many things on Testing perspective…which otherwise you might not get a chance to learn in your day to day Testing activities.

    From mine and my team experience I can say that VB Script is one of the most easiest scripting language to learn.Anyways…Keep frequenting the blog…I will try and see if I can put some relevant Vb Scripting material for beginners.
