While testing map,Zooming functionality We use Bitmap frequently.

Text Area Checkpoint:

It checks the text area present in the application.Sometimes we say that TextArea check point is nothing but text check point.


Keep tool under Recording mode > Insert menu> Checkpoint > Text area checkpoint > Mark the area of text > select one or more options (Match case, ignore spaces, exact match, text not displayed.)
Click ok and stop recording. Mostly while after doing some operation if we are expecting some text to be appeared in the application, We use this type of check point.

Like–after successful login Welcome UserName should present in the application.
or after successful upload of a file Uploaded successfully text should be present in the application.

Mainly below can be tested through QTP/UFT Standard Checkpoints…
  • Image

Image checkpoint:

It checks Image property values of an web image. Mainly location,alt property,link attached etc are checked. It is used to see if the image check point is prepared as per w3 school standard.
Under Recording mode with web environment > Insert menu > checkpoint >standard checkpoint > show the image > select image > click ok > click ok >stop recording.

Page checkpoint:

Mostly by this check points, functional test engineer checks the below written features:
1.number of Links,
2.Broken links
3.Images and Loading time in a web page.
4.DOM handling.
It is a hidden checkpoint;
we can insert this through standard checkpoint.
Under Recording mode with web environment > Insert menu > checkpoint > Standard checkpoint >show the web page > click ok > click ok > stop recording.
You can check out this link to know how the checkpoint info is saved in QTP
So the bottom line is that this check point checks the attributes of the page.

XML Checkpoint:

This is a kind of check point where test engineers checks for the content of XML.XML-extensible mark of Language is such language which is used to transfer data in web applications in Internet.

Advantages of XML:

It is compatible for all network
Secure from all network attacks(Noise & Distortion)
Independent of distance time
Connection and data transfer with Multiple languages is possible

How to Configure:

XML Check point (from Application)
It checks content of the XML file.
Under Recording mode in web environment > insert menu > checkpoint (from application)> show the xml pages >click ok > stop Recording.
XML Check point (from Resource)
It checks content of the XML file.
Navigation: Insert menu > checkpoint >xml checkpoint (from resource) > browse path of the XML File > click ok > click ok.
 If XML file is an individual and path available, and then we can go for inserting xml checkpoint from resource or if XML file is part of web application, separate path is not available then we can choose inserting XML checkpoints from application.
Using XML Check point we can check whether the values entered in the webpage (content) are covered into XML File.

How to validate check points in UFT?

Checkpoint returns on True or False.Based on that it can be coded..
Below is the example.

value_chkpoint = Browser(...).Page(...).WebEdit(...).Check (Checkpoint("Check1"))
if value_chkpoint then
MsgBox "Check Point passed"
MsgBox "Check Point failed"
end if
