Hi, and that's the general problem with such tools. It's like testing a motor without the car. It just can't work. Either the tools can test my complete app and if not, the concept is of no value. The problem with Users is, that they don't follow the steps the programmer has though about. A GUI is a highly unordered event thing controlling your app. Can you be sure if sequence A and B lead to the same result? Testing functions is good, but not enough. As soon as the user comes into play, things get hard ;-) -- Robert M. M=FCnch Mobile: +49 (177) 245 2802
