Winrunner - 3rd party component(Stingray Objective Grid from RogueWave

Winrunner - 3rd party component(Stingray Objective Grid from RogueWave

Winrunner - 3rd party component(Stingray Objective Grid from RogueWave

We have used a 3rd party component called the Stingray Objective Grid from RogueWave in our system which wsa developed in vc++.

The above 3rd party tool is somewhat similar to an excel sheet. we use it to enter/update/display  data into/from the databse.

I am trying to automate the testing of the system using winrunner. The 3rd party component which emits excel spread sheet is used to update or enter values which is stored in DB.  I have to automate the data entry or update process I have to refer to each cellto say the winrunner to enter data. I ddi try to use GUI spy to refer to the component as a whole to enter data but since it has many rows and column it cant understand which cell. when I try to make the winrunner learn the cell name, it take the current value of the cell as the cell name (object name). But since the value will be changed every time, winrunner could not identify the learnt cell name.

has anyone used this 3rd party tool before. has any one come across such a problem.

is it possible to map this thrid party tool to any standard.

Pl help.


RE: Winrunner - 3rd party component(Stingray Objective Grid from RogueWave

You can map the cell name to a variable.

When you learn the object, edit its properties so all that WR knows is the location of the cell.  Call the object 'CellName' or something like that.

When you need to refer to the cell refer to CellName instead.


Probably the only Test Analyst Manager on Tek-Tips...therefore whatever it was that went wrong, I'm to blame...
