Waiting for Toast Notifications in Android Open Applications (Legacy)

Applies to TestComplete 15.46, last modified on December 01, 2022
The information below concerns legacy mobile tests that work with mobile devices connected to the local computer. For new mobile tests, we recommend using the newer cloud-compatible approach.

When testing mobile applications, you may need to delay the test execution until a certain toast notification is displayed.

To wait for a certain toast notification, you can use a specific WaitForControlWithText method. TestComplete adds this method to the Device.Process objects that correspond to open Android applications. The method delays the test execution until a control with the specified text becomes available or until the specified timeout elapses.

The code below demonstrates how to delay the test execution until a notification with the "Toast Example" text is displayed. If a control with the specified text is not found until the timeout elapses, TestComplete posts a warning to the test log.

JavaScript, JScript

function Test1()
{
  Mobile.SetCurrent("MyDevice");
  TestedApps.MyAndroidApp.Run();
  var appObj = Mobile.Device().Process("smartbear.example.demoapp");
  appObj.RootLayout("").Button("buttonToast").TouchButton();
    // Waits until a Toast notification displays the specified text
  if (appObj.WaitForControlWithText("Toast Example", 3000))
    // Posts an image with the notification
    Log.Picture(appObj.RootLayout("").Picture(), "Toast was displayed.");
  else 
    // Posts a warning to the test log
    Log.Warning("Toast was not displayed.");
}

Python

def Test1():
    Mobile.SetCurrent("MyDevice")
    TestedApps.MyAndroidApp.Run()
    appObj = Mobile.Device().Process("smartbear.example.demoapp")
    appObj.RootLayout("").Button("buttonToast").TouchButton()
    # Waits until a Toast notification displays the specified text
    if appObj.WaitForControlWithText("Toast Example", 3000):
        # Posts an image with the notification
        Log.Picture(appObj.RootLayout("").Picture(), "Toast was displayed.")
    else:
        # Posts a warning to the test log
        Log.Warning("Toast was not displayed.")

VBScript

Sub Test1()
  Dim appObj
  Call Mobile.SetCurrent("MyDevice")
  Call TestedApps.MyAndroidApp.Run
  Set appObj = Mobile.Device.Process("smartbear.example.demoapp")
  Call appObj.RootLayout("").Button("buttonToast").TouchButton
  ' Waits until a Toast notification displays the specified text
  If appObj.WaitForControlWithText("Toast Example", 3000) Then
    ' Posts an image with the notification
    Call Log.Picture(appObj.RootLayout("").Picture, "Toast was displayed.")
  Else
    ' Posts a warning to the test log.
    Call Log.Warning("Toast was not displayed.")
  End If
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test1;
var appObj;
begin
  Mobile.SetCurrent('MyDevice');
  TestedApps.MyAndroidApp.Run;
  appObj := Mobile.Device.Process('smartbear.example.demoapp');
  appObj.RootLayout('').Button('buttonToast').TouchButton;
  // Waits until a Toast notification displays the specified text
  if appObj.WaitForControlWithText('Toast Example', 3000) then
    // Posts an image with the notification
    Log.Picture(appObj.RootLayout('').Picture, 'Toast was displayed.')
  else
    // Posts a warning to the test log
    Log.Warning('Toast was not displayed.');
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test1()
{
  Mobile["SetCurrent"]("MyDevice");
  TestedApps["MyAndroidApp"]["Run"]();
  var appObj = Mobile["Device"]["Process"]("smartbear.example.demoapp");
  appObj["RootLayout"]("")["Button"]("buttonToast")["TouchButton"]();
  // Waits until a Toast notification displays the specified text
  if (appObj["WaitForControlWithText"]("Toast Example", 3000))
    // Posts an image with the notification
    Log["Picture"](appObj["RootLayout"]("")["Picture"](), "Toast was displayed.");
  else
    // Posts a warning to the test log
    Log["Warning"]("Toast was not displayed.");
}
