Example for the use of WebUI keywords

In this section, we demonstrate examples for the use of WebUI keywords for screenshots.required/Studio StuKatalon

Take a screenshot of your current browser after logging in

import static com.kms.katalon.core.checkpoint.CheckpointFactory.findCheckpoint
import static com.kms.katalon.core.testcase.TestCaseFactory.findTestCase
import static com.kms.katalon.core.testdata.TestDataFactory.findTestData

import com.kms.katalon.core.mobile.keyword.MobileBuiltInKeywords as MobileBuiltInKeywords
import com.kms.katalon.core.mobile.keyword.MobileBuiltInKeywords as Mobile
import com.kms.katalon.core.model.FailureHandling as FailureHandling
import com.kms.katalon.core.testcase.TestCase as TestCase
import com.kms.katalon.core.testcase.TestCaseFactory as TestCaseFactory
import com.kms.katalon.core.testdata.TestData as TestData
import com.kms.katalon.core.testdata.TestDataFactory as TestDataFactory

import internal.GlobalVariable as GlobalVariable

'Open browser and navigate to AUT'
WebUI.openBrowser(GlobalVariable.G_SiteURL)

'Input username'
WebUI.setText(findTestObject('Page_Login/txt_UserName'), Username)

'Input password'
WebUI.setText(findTestObject('Page_Login/txt_Password'), Password)

'Click on new_btn'
WebUI.click(findTestObject('Page_Login/btn_Login'))

'Take a screenshot after logging in'
WebUI.takeScreenshot()

'Close browser'
WebUI.closeBrowser()

By default, the screenshots are saved to your Katalon folder.

Store your screenshot in a custom location

The following example also takes a screenshot of your current browser after logging in. But here, the screenshot is saved to a custom location.

import static com.kms.katalon.core.checkpoint.CheckpointFactory.findCheckpoint
import static com.kms.katalon.core.testcase.TestCaseFactory.findTestCase
import static com.kms.katalon.core.testdata.TestDataFactory.findTestData

import internal.GlobalVariable as GlobalVariable

'Open browser and navigate to AUT'
WebUI.openBrowser(GlobalVariable.G_SiteURL)

'Input username'
WebUI.setText(findTestObject('Page_Login/txt_UserName'), Username)

'Input password'
WebUI.setText(findTestObject('Page_Login/txt_Password'), Password)

'Click on new_btn'
WebUI.click(findTestObject('Page_Login/btn_Login'))

'Take screenshot after logging in'
WebUI.takeScreenshot('E:\\screenshot.png')

'Close browser'
WebUI.closeBrowser()

Sort and store screenshots by projects using relative paths

Same as above, but here the screenshot is stored in the same location as your current project, using relative paths.

'Open browser and navigate to AUT'
WebUI.openBrowser(GlobalVariable.G_SiteURL)

'Input username'
WebUI.setText(findTestObject('Page_Login/txt_UserName'), Username)

'Input password'
WebUI.setText(findTestObject('Page_Login/txt_Password'), Password)

'Click on new_btn'
WebUI.click(findTestObject('Page_Login/btn_Login'))

'Take screenshot after logging in'
WebUI.takeScreenshot('Test/Demo.png')

'Close browser'
WebUI.closeBrowser()
Important:
  • Katalon Studio 8.0.5 required.

The following examples illustrate different configurations to print the information you require on your screenshots.

  • Add the current timestamp to your screenshot:
def timestamp = new Date().format("YYYY-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")
WebUI.takeScreenshot(["text" : timestamp])
  • Add text Katalon Studio at position (10, 20):
WebUI.takeScreenshot(["text" : "Katalon Studio", "x" : 10, "y" : 20])
  • Add text Katalon Studio at position (10, 20) with font Courier, size 24, and gray color:
WebUI.takeScreenshot(["text" : "Katalon Studio", "x" : 10, "y" : 20, "font" : "Courier", "fontSize" : "24", "fontColor": "#808080"])
  • Take a screenshot, save it at D://Document. Add text Katalon Studio at position (10, 20) with font Courier, size 24 in gray:
WebUI.takeScreenshot(["text" : url, "x" : 10, "y" : 20, "fontColor" : "#FF3399", "fontStyle" : "Bold", "fontSize" : 30])
