Keyword View of QTP

QTP is having two views to access and analyze the test script that is Keyword View and Expert View.

Keyword View helps to display the recorded script in steps or hierarchical format. It is having some default columns which are important to understand the recorded script.

There are four important columns-

Item- It displays the icon based steps that is, you have done while recording the test. It contains window name, object name, function and etc.

Operation- Operation column shows the type of operation which you performed in the items. For examples select, click and etc.

Value- This column shows arguments which you have given while creating your test script and argument value for selected operation.

Documentation- Documentation section will display some short description in simple English about your step or item. It comes automatically.



QTP Testing Process

I assume that peoples are aware about QTP, so I’m directly switched to describe testing process of QTP.

Testing process is nothing but steps which every tester follows to create any test script in this tool.

There are seven steps to complete any test through QTP.

1: Preparing For Recording- In this step, we check that availability of our application and QTP. Basically we just analyze the application test requirements and ensure that tool will be fulfilled the all needs of application test.

2: Recording A Test Scenario- In this steps we just record the user scenario through the tool.

3: Enhance Your Test- In this step we just enhance the test, means, if there is requirement of different function, parameter, checkpoint and etc then we apply all according to test need.

4: Debugging A Test- Debugging a test ensures that create test is not having any bug and it will complete our testing task successfully.

5: Running Your Test- Just run the test in this step against specified application.

6: Analyze The Test Result- After running the test, it will generate some results, which need to analyze and ensure that test is pass or fail.

7: Report Defects- After analyze the result, if there is not meeting with the requirement, just raise the defect against your application.


Wireframes, this is new word for me because in my previous works I have not heard and seen about it.


It is very useful for tester and developers to understand and analyze the requirements. As definition, Wireframes are a basic visual guide used in web design to suggest the layout of fundamental elements in the interface. As in testing domain, testers develop the some test documents before deliver the code on middle environment. So for develop the test documents testers need to understand and analyze the requirements. Mostly testers get the requirements in word format but if testers get the requirements in visual format also then it will give more and more understanding about the requirements.
