TestCalc Sample

This sample script illustrates a simple automated testcase using Phantom. The script opens the Calculator application (calc.exe) that comes with Microsoft Windows. It verifies the state of the Calculator application (that it is in Scientific mode), and that it is initialized to display '0.'. The script then performs a simple math operation and checks the result.

Some of the Phantom features used are:

- Window Declarations File
- Button Interaction
- Edit Field Interaction
- Conditional Statements
- Exceptions

To use this sample, simply copy and paste it into a new script and save it. Additionally, download the 'calc.dec' file and save it to where the sample script is saved. The calc.dec file can be opened in the Window Declarations Recorder (WinDR.exe) utility, in Phantom Test Driver, or in the Phantom Sidekick editor.

Test Calc
# This is a sample script that tests the operation of
# the calc.exe calculator program included with Windows.
# This illustrates simple window interaction by reading
# text and interacting with buttons.  It also shows some
# logical operations, exception usage, and the use of
# the window declarations file.
# Note: The calc.dec file must be in the same directory
# as this script.

# Include the Calculator Declarations File
# This file would be recorded using WinDR.exe

# Prepare a global exception
exception e;
string sErr;

# Start the calculator program

# Ensure the calculator is in Scientific mode
if(Calculator._View._Scientific.IsChecked() == false){
  # Scientific is not selected, so select it
  disp("Scientific Menu Selected");

# Verify that the starting display is '0.'
string sText = Calculator.Edit1.GetText();
sText = trim(sText);  # Remove any spaces
if(sText != "0."){
  sErr = "Calculator not initialized to 0. (";
  sErr = sErr + sText + ")";
disp("Calculator initialized properly");

# Perform a Math Operation 4^2
# Note that the '=' button is a '_' in the window
# declarations file.  Could rename the '_' to
# 'Equal' in the declaration file and use:
# Calculator.Equal.Click();

# Sleep for 1/2 second to ensure calculator is
# done computing

# Verify that the result of 4^2 = 16
sText = Calculator.Edit1.GetText();
sText = trim(sText);  # Remove any spaces
if(sText != "16."){
  # Capture a bitmap of calculator error result and
  # save it for later analysis
  bitmap b = Calculator.CaptureBitmap();

  sErr = "Incorrect calculator result (4^2=";
  sErr = sErr + sText + ")";
disp("Calculator computed 4^2 properly");

# Close the calculator

disp("Test successful.");
