    Test Inbox welcome message

    If you entered into yahoo mail with your valid user name then you will get for example,
    " welcome to krishna " on the top of inbox page , how can you test it in QTP?

    You can confirm the same using a Text Checkpoint.

    A simple way would be to add a checkpoint using your Active Screen. Highlight the Text which displays the message and Select Insert Text Checkpoint.

    Based on the status of your Checkpoint, set the status of your Test as PASS / FAIL accordingly.

    If the welcome message is displayed as a Link, you could verify the existence of the same once Page load is complete. Since it would be identified as an Object, use


    Based on return value of Exists, pass / fail your test accordingly.

The scripts resulting from this method contain hard-coded values which must change if anything at all changes in the application
