Interview Question : How many recordings methods in WinRunner?
There are two modes of recording in WinRunner:
- Context Sensitive: Context Sensitive mode records actions performed on the application being tested in terms of the GUI objects, like windows, buttons. In this recording mode, the location of the object in the screen doesn't have any effect. When we perform an operation on the application to be tested, a script is generates know as Test Script Language (TSL). TSL tell us which object is selected and what operation is performed on it.
- Analog Context Sensitive: In Analog recording mode we can records mouse clicks and movement of mouse. It is used when application window position changes. When the test script is executing, WinRunner retraces the mouse movement. We use Analog recording mode when mouse movement is important, like when testing a drawing application or digital signature checking.
