RoutineBot is an interface automation testing software. It
allows to create scripts to test interface of software systems just
like human testers would do it. RoutineBot does not just emulate
mouse clicks or button clicks, the RoutineBot allows user to
specify some image sample to be found n the screen and do some
action with this sample. For instance, it can find image sample and
then focus mouse on it or move the mouse relatively. Check the
menu overview for more information
about supported functions.
The program is represented by two modules - one is RoutineBot
Designer and another is RoutineBot Interpreter. The RoutineBot
Designer helps user to design visual testing scripts, while
RoutineBot Interpreter allows to execute these scripts. The
RoutineBot was designed for visual software interface testing. You
can run the RoutineBot in a batch and process a set of tests.
The software will:
- return results of each test
- process possible error or warning messages (learn
- close test on timeout if they hang-up
RoutineBot allows to emulate actions that user normally
does (check the full list of
- Run and close applications
- Focus mouse on some image sample
- Emulate Click, Doubleclick, MouseUp and MouseDown events
- Emulate ScrollUp and ScrollDown actions
- Move mouse to absolute or relative coordinates

- RoutineBot supports Pascal, Java
and Basic script languages for variables, procedures,
functions, cycles, units inclusion.
The interface of RoutineBot Designer is divided in to parts. The
first part allows to take some picture samples from the screen, the
second part shows the script text with highlighted syntax.
The usage algorithm is very simple.
- First, click "Make snapshot" button. You will have 5 seconds to
move the mouse to appropriate position on the screen.
- Then, click "Select and crop" button to get the image you want
- Then click "Save sample button" to save the sample.
- On this step you might wish to put some comments. Then use
"Select Action" to add action to the script.
If the action you want to add doesn't involve the image you can
go directly to the Script section and click "Add action". Once the
script is ready you can test it. Go to the Script section and click
"Run Script" button. If you like the way script works you can save
it to the file. The RoutineBot can also help to generate BAT file
for future execution of the script, there is a "Prepare bat file"
in the Tools menu for this purpose.
