Power Mode Overview

When you run a Sprinter test in Power Mode, Sprinter is able to learn your application's display and identify its objects. This ability gives you access to Sprinter's advanced functionality, including data injection, recording and replaying macros, and working with mirroring (replicating user actions on multiple computers).

When you are in Power Mode, Sprinter keeps a record of all your user actions, which you can view as a list or in the Storyboard at the end of your run. You can also include the list of your steps or user actions in any defect you submit to let Sprinter automatically create a defect scenario for you.

You can export the list of user actions at the end of your run to an Excel spreadsheet, modify them for use as steps, and then import them to a test in the future. You can also export the list of your steps at the end of your run to a Sprinter data file and import them to Unified Functional Testing (UFT).

After a test run, you can use the test steps as a template and automatically generate a test. For details, see the Generate Test Dialog Box.

For ALM or UFT users, Sprinter's built-in scanners let you scan your application for spelling errors, Web Standards errors, broken links, or localization errors.

Power Mode allows you to take advantage of these advanced testing features. To use Power Mode, click the Power Mode button in the Main Sprinter Window and configure each node in the Power Mode Group.
