GUI Map File per Test Mode - WinRunner

When you work in the GUI Map File per Test mode, you do not need to teach WinRunner the GUI of your application, save, or load GUI map files (as discussed in “Working in the Global GUI Map File Mode”), since WinRunner does this for you automatically.

In the GUI Map File per Test mode, WinRunner creates a new GUI map file whenever you create a new test. WinRunner saves the test’s GUI map file whenever you save the test. When you open the test, WinRunner automatically loads the GUI map file associated with the test.

Note that some WinRunner features are not available when you work in this mode:

  • The RapidTest Script wizard is disabled.
  • The option to reload the (last) temporary GUI map file when starting WinRunner (the Load temporary GUI map file check box in the General category of the General Options dialog box) is disabled.
  • The myinit startup test that loads GUI map files when starting WinRunner does not load GUI map files. For information about startup tests, see, “Initializing Special Configurations.”
  • Compiled modules do not load GUI map files. If a compiled module references GUI objects, then those objects must also be referenced in the test that loads the compiled module.
  • If a called test that was created in the GUI Map File per Test mode references GUI objects, it may not run properly in the Global GUI Map File mode. You choose to work in the GUI Map File per Test mode by specifying this option in the General category of the General Options dialog box.

When you become more familiar with WinRunner, you may want to consider working in the Global GUI Map File mode. In order to change from working in the GUI Map File per Test mode to working in the Global GUI Map File mode, you must merge the GUI map files associated with each test into GUI map files that are common to a test-group. You can use the GUI Map File Merge Tool to merge GUI map files.
