    Re: GUI Testing

    Gui software testing is the process of testing a product that uses a graphical user interface, to ensure it meets its written specifications. This is normally done through the use of a variety of test cases. Testing gui applications most clients in client/server and web-based systems deliver system functionality using a graphical user interface (gui). When testing complete systems, the tester must grapple with the additional functionality provided by the gui. Guis make testing systems more difficult for many reasons: the event-driven nature of guis, unsolicited events, many ways in/many ways out and the infinite input domain problems make it likely that the programmer has introduced errors because he could not test every path. Available literature on testing guis tends to focus on tools as the solution to the gui testing problem. With few exceptions, papers on this topic pay little attention to gui test design but have concentrated on how automated regression-test suites can be built and maintained. One seminal paper [1] on the subject formulates a gui test strategy to detect errors and use tools to assist this process. [edit] test case generation to generate a ‘good’ set of test cases, the test designer must be certain that their suite covers all the functionality of the system and also has to be sure that the suite fully exercises the gui itself.

    GUI testing is basically page design testing. Consult your web designer, he will tell you the tips for testing GUI, if you are a fresher it is the best option.

    Along with design you should write test case for error msg and tool tips etc, they also comes under GUI.

    No Brijesh,
    It's Wrong. there is no need to consult this GUI testing to Web Designers. Testing the Screen is correct. what here to test is the Graphical User Interface are working according to the specification ( Text box enabled, List box loaded the data from Database, Button Action, Radio option, Bitmap image size, etc...) every thing should be notice.there is nothing to ask in this GUI to web designers
