Matching a Wnd caption created ID to the output on a grid.

Matching a Wnd caption created ID to the output on a grid.

Hi,

 

Let me set the scene. I  have a .net form that a user inputs data into. When you save the form an ID is generated and then obviously saved.

 

My question: Is there a way I can match this generated ID (Which will change everytime) and match it to the saved record on the grid. So lets say it saves as 123 I then use TC to go to the saved record on the grid and find it has 1234 this would therefore mean the ID hasn't saved correctly. So How can I find out if this form matches this saved record despite it changing every time I run a test?

Re: Matching a Wnd caption created ID to the output on a grid.

Depends.

 

When you save it, does it give you the ID as a reference anywhere?

 

Like, via a popup, or an onscreen message or something visible?

 

Failing that, does it propagate as a property of the form anywhere once the save completes?

 

If you have no way of getting the ID, then I suspect you're snookered.

 

 

TL;DR - As long as you can get the ID from somewhere when you save the form then .... yes.

Yes,

 

When you click save an ID is automatically generated on the form I have just input data to. This is the reference initially before I go and verify the grid with the details on.

As long as you're able to capture that from the GUI, you should be good then.
