T-Plan Robot Enterprise 3.0.1 Login Window

The Login window provides one of the three possible ways of connection to a desktop which represents your test environment, for example to a VNC server. The window displays when: The window consists of the following elements:

Login Window
  1. The Connection Type drop down allows to select client (protocol) for the desktop connection. T-Plan Robot Enterprise 3.0.1 supports connection to the VNC Server and a Static Image. For details about default supported test environments read the latest Release Notes document.
  2. The connection type specific parameters are located in the central part of the window. These controls are created dynamically based on the client request and they are likely to vary for particular client selected in the drop down. The are usually fields for desktop server host name and port (provided that the connection is realized through TCP/IP), authentication credentials (user name, password) and other protocol specific parameters. Follow the link in the client description for particular client parameter details.
  3. The Read only check box allows to activate the Read-Only desktop mode. It is a client independent GUI feature which prevents all local keyboard and mouse events from being sent to the connected desktop. It should be on when you connect to a desktop which someone else is already using and you don't want to interfere with it, for example when you want to view progress of automated testing in process executed on the desktop by another process. This mode can be switched on and off any time through the Read-Only menu item or tool bar button.
  4. The Error Field becomes visible on an unsuccessful connection to the specified test environment and displays the error message.
  5. The Language drop down allows to select the GUI language. As change of the display language requires restart of the main GUI window, the drop down is enabled only on the application start up and it is disabled when the Login Dialog gets invoked from the main GUI window. Though there is only English by default, there might be additional language packs available in the future.
  6. The Connect button initiates connection to the desktop using the selected client and parameters. If the client succeeds, the Login Window gets disposed and the main GUI window shows up with the desktop viewer component displaying image of the connected desktop. If the connection fails, an error message is usually displayed in a new message box and the Login Window remains displayed.
  7. The Cancel button cancels the window. On the application start it is titled Work Offline and it bypasses the desktop connection process and displays the main GUI window in offline mode (with inactive desktop viewer). It has the same function as the --nologin CLI option. Connection can be then initiated later either using the menu items described above or through execution of a Connect command from a test script.
  8. The More... link opens up a menu of more start up actions:
  1. The Help section provides links to relevant documents.
