Abstract

In automated GUI (Graphical User Interface) test systems events are performed which cause some change to the GUI. Once the GUI change is complete the automated GUI test system will grab an image to compare with a known good image. In different environments the amount of time for the GUI change to complete will vary so we have a problem deciding how long to wait before grabbing the image. This invention provides a method to determine when the change is complete which will adapt to the speed of the environment the automated GUI test system is running in.
