    By on March 27, 2009

    In Squish we need to intercept the events when recording user interactions and on play back we have to send the events again. So we have to know some details on how the event system in the toolkits work. To get those details, it is sometimes helpful if you...

  • Automated Qt GUI testing on Maemo

    By on March 3, 2009

    Hi! Since acquiring Trolltech, Nokia is really pushing Qt to all kinds of platforms and devices. This perfectly makes sense considering the gains of having to create the GUIs only once for all different platforms and devices (desktop and embedded) by using the Qt framework. Historically, and also when...

  • Peeping Toms in Amsterdam

    By on December 6, 2008

    Travelling by plane is getting a bigger nuisance each year. Airports accepting more flights and passengers than they can logistically handle and excessive and repeated security checks causing long waiting lines and missed flights. The sight (and personal feeling) of passengers being shooed through check points by shouting security...

  • Translucent scrollbars

    By on October 30, 2008

    Postponing support for SMIL attribute ‘fill=”scroll”‘ for a long time, I now really needed this feature for extending the Atom feed support in KMPlayer. KMPlayer comes with a flash player backend and supporting the Youtube feeds was just a too low hanging fruit to not implement. Anyhow, to ensure...

  • Squish's Extensibility and Integratability

    By on September 23, 2008

    Today I’d like to write about some of Squish’s features which are not so well known but which makes Squish a really powerful GUI testing solution. Extensibility: When we started to create Squish, our main focus was to support all standard components of the supported GUI technologies (Qt, Swing,...

    By on July 17, 2008

    The end of the day at the office is nearing. Sitting at my desk, going through the list of people who have requested a trial version of Squish today. Of course several from the usual suspects, i.e. large international cooperations. But what never ceases to amaze me is the...

  • Keyword driven test

    By on April 22, 2008

    I will today abuse this blog to publish some work without having to write documentation for it. While demonstrating Squish in web demos and at conferences I often get asked about keyword driven testing. Due to the powerful scripting features of Squish, this is quite easy to do with...

    By on February 19, 2008

    For a long time I had problems finding a way to organize arbitrary snippets of information on my computer. I tried several things from simply storing arbitrary text files in the normal directory structure to trying out various note-kepping programs. I even considered writing one of my own. Several...

  • Committing into multiple KDE branches

    By on February 7, 2008

    A while ago, KDE branched the 4.0.x releases into their own subversion branch directory. This reminded me that I’ve been using a little script for a while which comes in quite handy when you want to commit a patch to multiple branches. The script is called ‘ilc’ (which originally...
