Simple Example for Virtual Object Wizard:(VOW)

Take an example of win's Calculator. Record it and observe that are you able to get the script or object. i.e. whether that scipt is in a readable format? Can you able to understand that what operation/calculation you have performored. No. So to recoginize that objects we can use VOW. -[Virual - temperory object]

Some time application has some features and the operations performed on those features will not be scripted appropriately.Inother words these features r not recognised by WR as OBJECTS since they r not really objects.To over come this we have a mechanism called Virtual object configuration . This configuration is successfully done using a facility called "Virtual Object Wizard"

Application may contain objects that behave like standard objects but
are not recognized by QuickTest. You can define these objects as virtual
objects and map them to standard classes, such as a button or a check box.
QuickTest emulates the user’s action on the virtual object during the run
session. In the test results, the virtual object is displayed as though it is a
standard class object.

QuickTest does not support virtual objects for analog or low-level
