Re: [QF-Test] Interfacing with hosted apps in Citrix

Hi Rick,

apparently nobody has tried that yet...

Anyway, I don't think QF-Test will be able to interact with the Citrix
window as that's a native plugin. Some very simple automation based on
image recognition and mouse clicks relative to identified regions may
be possible, but I guess that's not much help, especially as you'd
need a third party OCR library to read the text from an image.

QF-Test can still run on XP. The question is what kind of system the
fat client is. Even if it's a native Windows program it may be
possible to automate it via QF-Test's autowin package.

For a first idea, please send a screenshot or two to our support.

Best regards,
    Greg
