Download File - VBScript function

Here is the function to download any file over internet using XMLHTTP COM objects in VBScript. 

  1. Function Download(sFileURL, sLocation)
  2.   'create xmlhttp object
  3.   Set objXMLHTTP = CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")
  5.   'get the remote file
  6. "GET", sFileURL, false
  8.   'send the request
  9.   objXMLHTTP.send()
  11.   'wait until the data has downloaded successfully
  12.   do until objXMLHTTP.Status = 200 :  wscript.sleep(1000) :  loop
  14.   'if the data has downloaded sucessfully
  15.   If objXMLHTTP.Status = 200 Then
  17.         'create binary stream object
  18.     Set objADOStream = CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
  19.     objADOStream.Open
  21.           'adTypeBinary
  22.     objADOStream.Type = 1
  23.     objADOStream.Write objXMLHTTP.ResponseBody
  25.           'Set the stream position to the start
  26.     objADOStream.Position = 0    
  28.           'create file system object to allow the script to check for an existing file
  29.           Set objFSO = Createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  31.           'check if the file exists, if it exists then delete it
  32.     If objFSO.Fileexists(sLocation) Then objFSO.DeleteFile sLocation
  34.           'destroy file system object
  35.     Set objFSO = Nothing
  37.           'save the ado stream to a file
  38.     objADOStream.SaveToFile sLocation
  40.           'close the ado stream
  41.     objADOStream.Close
  43.     'destroy the ado stream object
  44.     Set objADOStream = Nothing
  46.   'end object downloaded successfully
  47.   End if
  49.   'destroy xml http object
  50.   Set objXMLHTTP = Nothing
  51. End Function
  53. 'Call like this
  54. Download """C:\test1.mp3"

I got this script from internet and thanks for the author as I forgot where I took this.

Change IE Browser ZOOM settings

Lot of UI automation testers could have faced this problem as we could change the zoom settings while operating manually for our convenience and forgot to reset to 100%.
But our QTP and some other related tools would operate the browser perfectly if browser zoom is 100%. So wee need to change the zoom before start to run the scripts. Its better to have a code snippet in our framework to change this zoom setting right?
Here we go...

1. We can simply change the Registry values before Invoking IE
Function ChangeRegistry Dim objShell Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")  objShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Zoom\ZoomFactor", "100000", "REG_DWORD" Set objShell = Nothing EndFunction This option is very useful. But in real time, lot of customers could have restricted write access to windows registry. So we can try other options.

2. Use IE COM object and Change Settings
Function ChangeIEZoom Dim intZoomLevel, objIE  intZoo…

QTP - Object Identification - Prerequesties

While starting a new project or proof of concept or after new QTP installation, we would face the issue in identifying objects as QTP built objects like WinList, WebEdit, etc.; instead everything will be identified as WinObject.

Here are some steps to ensure you did the environment setup RIGHT before start automating.
Did you enabled required Add-ins only while launchingDid you selected "Record >> Record and Run Settings" - This should be based on what type of application you are working with
Windows app - Windows >> Record and run test on any windows applications. Web app - Web >> Record and run test on any open browser.
Did you tried to launch UFT/QTP and then AUT.If its web, ensure browser zoom level set to 100%Try disabling the protected mode in IE for web.Launch UFT and AUT using RUN AS ADMINISTRATORAlso see the Object Identification Methods if you are interested.

Run JavaScript from QTP

Yeah, You can run your pure JavaScript from QTP using RunScript method. Lot of times, we are in need of firing events or simulating actions on web page which is not supported by QTP. At that time, you can use your direct DOM methods and directly execute your script on the web page from QTP like,
Dim MyPage, SearchBox Set MyPage = Browser("title:=Google").Page("title:=Google") Set SearchBox = MyPage.RunScript("document.getElementsByName('q')(0);") SearchBox.Value="testing"
'if objects available in frames, Set SearchBox = MyPage.RunScript("document.frames(4).document.getElementsByName('q')(0);")
Set objFrame = Browser("title:=Google").Page("title:=Google").Frame("title:=something")
objFrame.RunScript("document.getElementsByName('q')(0);") Also, you can execute by obtaining actual browser window object if you have IE app like, Dim IEApp Set IEApp = CreateObject("Internet…
