6. What are all the main tasks which will be accomplished by the QTP after creating a test?

After we have finished recording, we can instruct QTP to check the properties of specific objects in our application by means of enhancement features available in QTP. When we perform a run session, QTP performs each step in our test or component. After the run session ends, we can view a report detailing which steps were performed, and which one succeeded or failed.

QTP test script is a combination of VB script statements and statements that use QuickTest test objects, methods and properties

25. What is test object?

It’s an object that QTP uses to represent an object in our application. Each test object has one or more methods and properties that we can use to perform operations and retrieve values for that object. Each object also has a number of identification properties that can describe the object.

26. What are all the rules and guidelines want to be followed while working in expert view?


VB script is not case sensitive and does not differentiate between upper case and lower case spelling of words.

Text strings

When we enter value as a string, that time we must add quotation marks before and after the string


We can use variables to store strings, integers, arrays and objects. Using variables helps to make our script more readable and flexible.


To achieve the desired result and to avoid the errors, it is important that we use parentheses() correctly in our statements.


We can add comments to our statements using apostrophe (‘), either at a beginning of the separate line or at the end of a statement


We can add extra blank spaces to our script to improve clarity. These spaces are ignored by the VB script
