Re: [QF-Test] Flash support for QF-Test?

Hello Jere,

I'm sorry, Flash testing is currently not on the agenda.

The image based algorithm can be fine-tuned to a certain degree. You
can limit the screen region to be searched in order to speed things up
(parameters x, y, width and height) and you can parameterize the
algorithm for the image comparison to achieve the tolerance level you
need (see the algorithm parameter, just lower the expected value).

However, image based testing is only good enough for simulating a few
clicks, I wouldn't use it for serious testing of a Flash-based

Best regards,
