Python library for GUI automation and testing
pywinauto is a set of python modules to automate the Microsoft Windows GUI. At it’s simplest it allows you to send mouse and keyboard actions to windows dialogs and controls.
0.3.1 Performance tune-ups
- Change calculation of distance in findbestmatch.GetNonTextControlName() so that it does not need to square or get the square root to find the real distance - as we only need to compare values - not have the actual distance. (Thanks to Stefaan Himpe)
- Compiled regular expression patterns before doing the match to avoid compiling the regular expression for window that is being tested (Thanks to Stefaan Himpe)
- Made it easier to add your own control tests by adding a file extra_tests.py which needs to export a ModifyRegisteredTests() method. Also cleaned up the code a little.
- Updated notepad_fast.py to make it easier to profile (adde a method)
- Changed WrapHandle to use a cache for classes it has matched - this is to avoid having to match against all classes constantly.
- Changed default timeout in SendMessageTimeout to .001 seconds from .4 seconds this results in a significant speedup. Will need to make this value modifiable via the timing module/routine.
- WaitNot was raising an error if the control was not found - it should have returned (i.e. success - control is not in any particular state because it does not exist!).
- Added ListViewWrapper.Deselect() per Chistophe Keller’s suggestion. While I was at it I added a check on the item value passed in and added a call to WaitGuiIdle(self) so that the control has a chance to process the message.
- Changed doc templates and moved dependencies into pywinauto subversion to ensure that all files were availabe at www.openqa.org and that they are not broken when viewed there.
- Moved all timing information into the timings.Timings class. There are some simple methods for changing the timings.
