OverviewThe idea was about The UI testing framework in LibreOffice. The UITesting  Framework is based on introspection code in c++ interacting with a testing framework in python through a simple UNO interface. To identify objects we use the ids that we introduced for loading dialogs from UI files. We were having unsupported items list in LibreOffice UITesting Framework. So The project mainly goals is to Extend the ability of the existing UI testing framework to support the unsupported items that exist now. So the work done on this list to decrease number of items in it.
As we also have a domain specific language that we used to log the events in its syntax and a Logger system that supports the UI elements of Visual Component Library and some application-specific events can also logged with the DSL syntax. Then to Increase the ability of the DSL that used for testing by Be able to log more complex events and the events of the new added items that were unsupported before. Als…

 Report in points:
Problems in Menu Button objects .Final support demo in Menu Button objects.=====================================
1) I asked Markus to help me in the Menu Button objects because I tried to add a demo for the Menu Button. The problem was that the test case stop responding after executing any action from the actions that added to the support.


For example, If I executed this line: >>self.ui_test.execute_dialog_through_action( xmenugearbtn , "OPENFROMLIST" , mkPropertyValues({"POS": "0" }) )

The test case opens the desired dialog and stops responding until I close it. Markus found out that the problem was that We have a way to handle these cases but the dialog was incorrectly marked as modeless dialog which meant that we have a modeless dialog on top of a modal one. That case…
