  4. AXUI separate UI logic from test scripts, make test scripts more readable and easier to maintain

  5. AXUI provide mechanism to handle auto met UI automation issues, like UI response time

An overview of AXUI structure

AXUI structure

code demonstrations

This code is in example/selenium, it's a simple example to demonstrate how AXUI separate UI logic from test script.

Though this example give us a impression that AXUI add extra complexities but doesn't improve code readability. Image that an app contains a lot of UI Elements, and the search identifiers split into multiple test scripts, then AXUI can gather all UI identifiers into one appmap, and make your scripts clean to read and maintain.


import selenium.webdriver as webdriver

browser = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path = r"chromedriver.exe")

searchEdit = browser.find_element_by_id("sb_form_q")
goButton = browser.find_element_by_id("sb_form_go")


AXUI AppMap:

<AXUI:app_map xmlns:AXUI="AXUI" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="AXUI AXUI_app_map.xsd">
        <AXUI:func name="go_to_bing" description="">
            <AXUI:step type="GUI" cmd='browser.BrowserPattern.get ""'/>

        <AXUI:Root_element name="browser" >
            <AXUI:UI_element name="searchEdit" identifier="id='sb_form_q'" start_func="go_to_bing"/>
            <AXUI:UI_element name="goButton" identifier="id='sb_form_go'" start_func="go_to_bing"/>

AXUI Code:

import AXUI

config_file = "selenium.cfg"
app_map = ""

appmap = AXUI.AppMap(app_map)

appmap.browser.start(browser_name="CHROME", executable_path = r"chromedriver.exe")
