TestComplete functionality from within applications


I recall reading somewhere that TestComplete allows applications to be written in such a way that users can in the event of an error record their keystrokes (+ a screen shot maybe?) and send the resulting file to the HelpDesk/development team for correction. Now, my question is where is that "somewhere". Can anyone help, or I was reading it in my dreams?

Thanks and have a great day you all,

There is a tool kit available called TestRecorder that consists of components that can be integrated into an application for doing precisely what you want.  If you have a TestComplete Enterprise edition, you already have a license for that.  If not, you will need to purchase one.  Please contact the AQA sales team.

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.

Thanks Robert. We have the TestRecorder but I haven't looked into it yet as testified by my previous email!

By the way, does TestRecorder purely capture keystrokes and mouse movements or it also allows for example more complex activities such as capturing of screen shots to allow the helpdesk to see what was displayed at a given time during the user action?

Thanks and regards,


Hi Dooost,

TestRecorder can record only user actions such as clicks, keystrokes, etc.
