Configuring browsers for testing

You need to configure your browsers for HTML testing with HCL OneTest™ UI. This provides name, path, and other information that HCL OneTest™ UI needs to access and use your browsers. You use the Web Browsers tab of the Enable Environments dialog box to do this.

About this task

To add and configure your browsers:

Procedure

  1. Click Configure > Enable Environments for Testing from HCL OneTest™ UI.
  2. Click on the Web Browsers tab. This tab is used to add and edit browser configurations.
  3. Add your browser(s) by one of the following methods:

    Search

    To add a new browser by searching, click the Search button.

    This opens the Search for Web Browsers dialog box. Choose one of the search options in that dialog and click the Search button. Note: You should not use the Search All option to find browsers on Linux or UNIX systems. Instead use the Search In option to locate the browser. See Enabling Web Browsers for information on the search options. HCL OneTest™ UI will fill in all the detailed information on each browser.

    Add

    To add a new browser manually, click the Add button.

    The Add Browser dialog appears.

    Locate the directory containing the browser you want to add.

    With the file selected, click the Add button.

    The browser will then show up in the Web Browsers list.

  4. Look at the information in the Detailed Information list. Whether you use Search or Add, HCL OneTest™ UI will fill in all the detailed information on each browser. Make any necessary edits.

    For information on these fields, see the Web Browsers tab of the Enable Environments dialog box.

  5. Choose which browser you want to be your default browser. It will be used in all HTML applications that have not specified a browser. Select the browser in the list, and click the Set as Default button.

    That browser will then become the default, and will be indicated in parentheses. You can change the default any time by coming back to this tab.

  6. You must click Finish or Apply to save the changes you made.
    Note: Once a browser has been added, you can edit its information any time by opening this tab and selecting it in the Web Browsers list.
