How to perform image based validation using excel

Post by thanhtammongha » Thu Aug 08, 2019 2:23 pm

In my application which I am automating there are few elements which are automated based on imaged validation technique,
Please help me to design my script in such a way that I can call image operations also using excel.
(NOTE: click is the only image based operation I am talking about)
Say for instance below is the method to click on an element

I'm afraid, I don't quite understand, what exactly you want to do with excel? Could you please describe your problem in more details? The only scenario I see doable, is using Excel as a data source for paths to reference images, you may eventually want to compare with UI. But to be quite honest, I would rather avoid using excel for this task and use plain CSV file instead. But without knowing more details about the problem you are facing, it's hard/impossible to suggest something sensible ;)
