Generate run code for CrossBrowserTesting dialog

To call the dialog

Click on the Code Editor toolbar in TestComplete.

Requirements

  • TestComplete 14.4.

  • An active license for the TestComplete Web Module and for the Device Cloud add-on.

  • The Web Testing plugin and the Device Cloud add-on must be enabled in TestComplete (they are installed and enabled by default).

  • An active CrossBrowserTesting account.

    Note: If you do not have an account, you can sign up for a free trial directly from TestComplete — TestComplete will suggest that you do this automatically if it does not find the appropriate account data when you open the dialog.

Generate run code for CrossBrowserTesting

Specify the following:

Parameters

  • Tested site URL - The URL of the tested web page that the specified remote browser will open upon launching. Typically, it should be the page from which your testing actions will start.

    We recommend that you specify the complete URL of your target web page, including the protocol name. For example, http://services.smartbear.com/samples/TestComplete14/smartstore/. Otherwise, TestComplete will use the HTTPS protocol to navigate to the target web page and post a warning to the test log.

  • If your tested web application is behind a firewall in your local network or on your local computer, or if you want to route traffic to your tested application through a proxy server, you can configure a secure tunnel.

    If the tunnel has not been configured yet, click Select another location and then, in the resulting Choose Your Web Application Location dialog, specify the application location.

    View instructions

  • Platform - You can select one of the following platform types:

    • Desktop

    • Mobile

    • Headless

  • Device - Select one of the devices provided by CrossBrowserTesting.com.

  • Browser - Select a web browser in which you want to run your web test.

  • Resolution - Select the screen resolution that will be set on the target platform for the test run.

Custom parameters

On this tabbed page of the dialog, you can specify additional capabilities that will be used for your test run.

You specify additional capabilities in the JSON format. For example:

JSON

{
  "name": "My test",
  "record_video": "true"
}

The JSON code will be validated as you are typing it.

See the list of available capabilities on the CrossBrowserTesting.com website:

Copying the generated code

The dialog will generate the code based on the items you select and will show the generated code in the lower part of the dialog.

You can select and copy the code to the clipboard manually, or you can click Copy to clipboard. The dialog will copy the entire code to the clipboard and then close. Insert the code from the clipboard to the needed place in your code.

Click Close to close the dialog without copying anything.
