I remember at a previous company I was using a testing package. There was a menu option where I could click on an object (such as a windows app window, etc) and say "Identiry" and it would tell you the name of the object so you could use it in your tests. Is there something similar in Test Complete?
Why automate? I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy. Sleep is a requirement. So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group. I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
