How to handle synchronization in UFT/QTP

In any test automation framework, browser handling is the most important part during automation scripting.  Let’s see how to handle synchronization in UFT. which you can encounter during your work with test automation using UFT.

A robust Synchronization mechanism plays a vital role in making your test stable. If part of your tests fails due to a bad wait function between two clicks, then it is high time to revisit your wait function and make it more error-proof.

Here in the below-written code, we have two assumptions.

  1. The application is a normal web-based application with a hierarchy as Browser>Page etc.
  2. The browser returns ReadyStatecomplete or 4 once it is fully loaded.

It checks 2 things in the same order as given below.

  1. First, it checks if a page is existing within the first 120 seconds.
  2. Second, it waits for the browser to return ReadyState=complete/4
Example code: How to handle synchronization in UFT
Function Wait_Sync()
    nBrowser_Count = Browser_Count
    If nBrowser_Count > 0 Then
        waitCounter = 0
        intStartTime = 0
            wait 1
            waitCounter = waitCounter + 1
            If (waitCounter = 120)  Then
                Exit Do
            End If
            bPageExistFlag = Browser("CreationTime:=" & nBrowser_Count - 1).Page("title:=.*").Exist(0)
        Loop WhilebPageExistFlag = False
            On Error Resume Next
            Wait 0,500
            waitCounter = 0          
            If bPageExistFlag = True Then
                ReadyState_Val = Browser("CreationTime:=" & nBrowser_Count - 1).Page("index:=0").Object.ReadyState
                ReadyState_Val = "Loading"
            End If
            sReadyState_Val = CStr(ReadyState_Val)
            If   intStartTime = 600  Then
                'Print intStartTime
                Exit Do
            End If
            intStartTime = intStartTime + 1
            iFinalVal = Eval(InStr(sReadyState_Val,4) > 0 Or InStr(sReadyState_Val,"complete") > 0)
        Loop UntiliFinalVal = True
    End If
End Function
