RoutineBot does not just emulate mouse clicks or button clicks, the RoutineBot allows user to specify some image sample to be found n the screen and do some action with this sample. For instance, it can find image sample and then focus mouse on it or move the mouse relatively.

The software is powerful enough as it use Pascal syntax inside, this means that user can create scripts with variables, cycles (for, until), procedures and functions, include external unit. Check more about Pascal-like syntax in RoutineBot.

The program allows to solve test automation problem as well as the problem routine tasks automation, it is represented by two modules - one is RoutineBot Designer and another is RoutineBot Interpreter. The RoutineBot Designer helps user to design visual testing scripts, while RoutineBot Interpreter allows to execute these scripts.

The RoutineBot was designed for visual software interface testing. You can run the RoutineBot in a batch and process a set of tests. In comparison to other GUI test tools, RoutineBot suggests cheaper and very easy to use approach to GUI tests.

The software will:

  • return results of each test
  • process automatically possible error or warning messages
  • close test on timeout if it hang-up

RoutineBot allows to emulate actions that user normally does (check the full list of supported commands):

  • RoutineBot - testing scriptRun and close applications
  • Focus mouse on some image sample
  • Emulate Click, Doubleclick, MouseUp and MouseDown events
  • Emulate ScrollUp and ScrollDown actions
  • Move mouse to absolute or relative coordinates
  • Enter some text or emulate pressing some keys on keyboard.

The interface of RoutineBot Designer is divided in to parts. The first part allows to take some picture samples from the screen, the second part shows the script text with highlighted syntax.

The usage algorithm is very simple. First, click "Make snapshot" button. You will have 5 seconds to move the mouse to appropriate position on the screen. Then, click "Select and crop" button to get the image you want to use. Then click "Save sample button" to save the sample. On this step you might wish to put some comments. Then use "Select Action" to add action to the script.

If the action you want to add doesn't involve the image you can go directly to the Script section and click "Add action". Once the script is ready you can test it. Go to the Script section and click "Run Script" button. If you like the way script works you can save it to the file. The RoutineBot can also help to generate BAT file for future execution of the script, there is a "Prepare bat file" in the Tools menu for this purpose.
