Key Investigators

  • Brigham and Women's Hospital: Sonia Pujol
  • Isomics Inc: Steve Pieper
  • Kitware: Jean-Christophe Fillon-Robin
  • GE: Xiaodong Tao

Objective

The objective is to explore different solutions for automated GUI testing.


Approach, Plan

We'll generate automated tests using the Slicer3minute tutorial.

  • Sikuli
  • QtTesting libraries
  • Directly calling GUI via PythonQt

Progress

  • We have developed a sikuli script that runs automatically the different steps of the Slicer3minute tutorial using Slicer4: automated test example
  • We reviewed the needs for the integrated test recording framework in VTK/Qt/Python (about 50% done, but is no the slicer4 to-do list)
  • Tested native PythonQt event passing (see example code below)
#
# example PythonQt snippet that creates a button and clicks on it
#

def c():
  print ("clicked!")

def b():
  global bb
  bb = qt.QPushButton('Test')
  bb.show()
  bb.connect("clicked()", c)

  p = qt.QPoint(10,10)
  event = qt.QMouseEvent(2, p, 1, 1, 0)
  slicer.app.sendEvent(bb, event)

  event = qt.QMouseEvent(3, p, 1, 1, 0)
  slicer.app.sendEvent(bb, event)
