report customisationOpen in a New Window

I want to include some derived data into the report and display it via a table 

I am creating the table via the xsl but I need to enter the details via the xml output. Would anyone know how to modify the xml output to include the new data in the xml? I'm assuming I need to modify the xsd to also define a new variable. Has anybody done this before? I cannot see the help for this as it just does not load on my laptop

Sample application Flight4b.exeOpen in a New Window

Is there any way to download & install the old Flight4b.exe application?

Some tutorials still use it and the new sample does not work just as the old one (+ it's build on WPF and not the old Win32 forms).


SystemUtil.Run "C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\QuickTest Professional\samples\flight\app\flight4b.exe"

I believe it was still present in UFT 12.50.

Browse thru solutions explorer with vbscriptOpen in a New Window

HP UFT 12.54 How can I iterate over the contents of the solutions explorer similar as I can iterate over an active test I would like to get from tree of solutions explorer to my projects to my tests and to my teststeps.

I could not find something like qtApp.solutionexplorer in objectmodel and as it seems visual studio stuff I can parse the ftsln file myself but assume there is a smarter way of getting the contents of the solutions explorer.

Sub test()
    Dim qtapp As New QuickTest.Application
    Dim qtui As QuickTest.UI
    Dim myTest As QuickTest.test
    Dim myActions As QuickTest.Actions
    Dim myAction As QuickTest.Action
 '   Dim objDTE
' Creates an instance of the Visual Studio IDE
'Set objDTE = CreateObject("VisualStudio.DTE")
    qtapp.Visible = True
    Set qtui = qtapp.UI
    Set myTest = qtapp.test
    Set myActions = myTest.Actions
     Debug.Print myTest.Name
     For Each myAction In myActions
        Debug.Print myAction.Name

End Sub


Unable to identify multilevel headers of JTableOpen in a New Window


I am trying to automate Java based application using HP UFT. In a JTable, there are two levels of table headers where second level is repeating more than once and first level are unique as shown in attached screenshot. When i try to identify table, only second level column headers are being retrieved. How to get values of first level header? Because i want to type in values in each column. With out getting values from First level header, it is not possible to identify cells correctly, because the number of columns are dynamic.

Previously whole word is taken and now each letter is recorded seperately. Also the brackets when i tried to enter in the field it is taking the value as 9 ibnstead of (. It ignores shift keys and consider only the key 9 poressed. Below is the reference code generated.

How to select specific element in Powerbuilder window using HP UFTOpen in a New Window

I am trying to record/automate an application developed in Sybase' Powerbuilder. I am currently using HP UFT v12.54.

Using the default recording process, the object spy is only seeing the area on my PB Window, not the specific field/dropdown. In short, I am unable to select a specific object in the window.

Please see image here https://i.stack.imgur.com/Cfo99.jpg


^ Here I am trying to select the [Authorized Signatory] field, but instead, UFT does not see the specific element, but the field area [Customer Data] instead. UFT just references the fields in the area by xy axis, not the specific object. Is this the default behaviour?

Any input would be appreciated.


UFT Object Recognition IssueOpen in a New Window

Hi All,

We have an Oracle Form opened by a web browser that is automated using HP UFT 11.50 on Internet Explorer 9. We have done all scripting where Oracle Form is recognized as JavaWindow. Suddenly yesterday, the same Oracle Forms are being recognized as just 'Window' with no object hierarchy. We are stuck here and unable to identify any objects on the form. Please drop in your suggestions to resolve this.

Note –

  1. UFT itself opens the bowser which in turn opens the Oracle Form.
  2. UFT recognizes the browser but not the Oracle Form.
  3. All add-ins are associated correctly – Java, VB, Oracle, ActiveX.
  4. All temp, cache files, cookies are cleared.
