In this video we take a look at why we need the TestComplete Namemap. Why it’s so important and why it’s the foundation of all the automated tests we build in TestComplete. Once you understand the ‘Why’ we’ll be going through the ‘How’. How to use the namemap and how to make sure it doesn’t turn into a complete mess.
A lot of test automation is about re-using code and avoiding duplication. If you can achieve this everything becomes far easier to maintain. In this video we show you a neat trick to create functional keyword tests that manipulate the Namemap at run time. With this you can create reusable functions that make things like menu navigation far easier to manage.
