Runtime Resources with multiple Run time resources

  • 1.  Runtime Resources with multiple Run time resources

    Posted 01-18-2021 16:25

    Hi, I was  reading the  infrastructure reference guide  version 6.3.

    One of the section "Runtime Resources with multiple Runtime Resources" it was mentioned:

    "Each process that runs simultaneously on a single Runtime Resource must be able to successfully identify the application

    (s) that were launched for its use. (E.g. if there are 5 processes each using Internet Explorer, each process must be able to

    successfully identify which is the appropriate one to use)."

    I know we can identify the Process id  or child index in Launch action but does it work if we use global send keys ?

    I think you'd have to make sure the target window was in focus for GSK to work, otherwise the keys could hit the wrong window. Think of GSK as typing on the keyboard with your eyes shut - if the cursor is in the right place it will work, but if the cursor is elsewhere, your typing will go astray.

    You can create simple code action which returns the process you start ID for later usage in attach action (there's an option to attach by process ID):

    Input parameters:
    Process Name (text)
    Arguments (text)

    Process Id (number)

    Code (adjust if you need):
    Dim myProcess As System.Diagnostics.Process
    myProcess = new Process()
    myProcess.StartInfo.FileName = Process_Name

    If Arguments<>"" Then
    myProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = Arguments
    End If
    Process_Id = myProcess.ID

    It might require
    In the namespace imports in initialize page object properties
