Analyzing the Results of a GUI Checkpoint on Table Contents

You can view the results of a GUI checkpoint on table contents. The results of a GUI checkpoint are displayed in the GUI Checkpoint Results dialog box that you open from the Test Results window. It lists each object included in the GUI checkpoint and the type of checks performed. Each check is listed as either passed or failed, and the expected and actual results are shown. If one or more objects fail, the entire GUI checkpoint is marked as failed in the test log. For more information on checking the contents of a table, refer to the WinRunner User's Guide.

To display the results of a GUI checkpoint on table contents:

  • Highlight the table content checkpoint and click the Display button or double-click the table content checkpoint. In the example above, the Table content check is labeled Flight.

The Data Comparison Viewer opens, displaying both expected and actual results. All cells are color coded, and all errors and mismatches are listed at the bottom of the window.

Use the following color codes to interpret the differences that are highlighted in your window:

  • Blue on white background. Cell was included in the comparison and no mismatch was found.
  • Cyan on ivory background. Cell was not included in the comparison.
  • Red on yellow background. Cell contains a mismatch.
  • Magenta on green background. Cell was verified but not found in the corresponding table.
  • Background color only. Cell is empty (no text).
  • By default, scrolling between the Expected Data and Actual Data tables in the Data Comparison Viewer is synchronized. When you click a cell, the corresponding cell in the other table flashes red.

To scroll through the tables separately, clear the Utilities > Synchronize Scrolling command or click the Synchronize Scrolling button to deselect it. Use the scroll bar as needed to view hidden parts of the table.

  • To filter a list of errors and mismatches that appear at the bottom of the Data Comparison Viewer, use the following options:
  • To view mismatches for a specific column only. Double-click a column heading (the column name) in either table.
  • To view mismatches for a single row. Double-click a row number in either table.
  • To view mismatches for a single cell. Double-click a cell with a mismatch.
  • To view the previous mismatch. Click the Previous Mismatch button .
  • To view the next mismatch. Click the Next Mismatch button .
  • To see all mismatches. Choose Utilities > List All Mismatches or click the List All Mismatches button .
  • To clear the list. Double-click a cell with no mismatch.
  • To see the cell(s) that correspond to a listed mismatch. Click a mismatch in the list at the bottom of the dialog box to see the corresponding cells in the table flash red. If the cell with the mismatch is not visible, one or both tables scroll automatically to display it.

Note: When working in the WinRunner report view, you can edit the data in the Edit Check dialog box, which you open from the GUI Checkpoint Results dialog box. To do so, highlight the table content property check, and click the Edit Expected Value button .

  • Choose File > Exit to close the Data Comparison Viewer.
