How automate UI string test?

Post by SanMan » Mon Dec 01, 2014 2:12 pm

HI,

little bit lost here, how to do this. I need to check that all new added features/strings/text/notifications... added to SUT can be found from SUT & Excel list.

I can switch on "test language", which adds to all strings "_T" before the string.

e.g File > Exit changes to _T File > _T Exit

I have a list of all strings (excel)

String------------english-----------testlanguage
FILEMENU********File**************_T File

So if e.g. in File menu will have a new item e.g "Sell", it will be found like _T Sell when I have set the "test language" on.

What would be the best way to go through the SUT and verify that all items has this _T ?

If I run my test (make with english UI language), can I e.g. somehow verify the string list same time and maybe same time automatically add some mark in the list which items has been verified? Or am I really thinking very wrong here and should make it work some other way?

Hopefully someone understand what I am trying to archive here and have some good ideas.

Hello SanMan,

May I ask you to upload a Ranorex snapshot of your SUT? This gives a an overview about the technology and the structure of your SUT.

Regards,
Robert
