Squish tip of the week: Validate functionality and visual layout

Did you know Squish can visually validate your application in addition to verifying objects & properties?

While the most common method of validation testing is data or object related, Squish can also validate how an item appears visually.

Create a Screenshot Verification Point using Squish and:

  • Strictly compare images
  • Compare image pixels, setting thresholds for a percentage of error and color difference
  • Perform histogram-based image comparisons, setting a bin differences threshold as well as percentage of failures allowed
  • Create positive and negative masks to ignore or focus on specific areas of an image comparison
  • Use an interactive comparison tool to analyze image differences and update images as needed

Most importantly, images for comparison are still identified in your application using the object-based recognition method, and then the image is compared, ensuring optimal accuracy.
