View Full Version : Accessing DemoShield Autorun screen

04-19-2005, 04:55 PM
Hi all
This is my first post to this forum! :) Hope you can help me out.

Heres my problem:
We have used Demoshield to create the main gateway of our installer.
When setup.exe is activated it brings up a screen created in Demoshield . It has links which when clicked, activate specific install options.
My job as a QA tester is to automate the clicking of these links. The way I do it is with a product called Visual Test. I try to find the window id of the link (using Spy++ for instance) and then have Visual Test click on the link.

Unfortunately, Spy does not recognize any of the controls or links on the screen created by DemoShield. Can anyone tell me what the nature of the screen is or how I can go about accessing the links.

The objects on a DemoShield scene are not separate windows that you can identify using tools like Spy++. You will need to use the main demo window as the reference and then send mouse clicks at an offset to the top of the demo window.
