During testing, we sometimes need take screen captures with multiple tooltips related to the application under test (AUT). For example, during translation verification testing (TVT), lots of tooltips might be necessary. Most of time, we attach multiple tooltips in the same bitmap image file to save the TVT tester time and effort. However, we can't identify the properties of the tooltip directly by using the Test Object Inspector. Another problem is when we attach multiple tooltips in the same base bitmap file, where is the proper position? If we do not know, there will be truncation or overlap after attachment. Huai Ying Xia and Zhi Jun Wang describe a way to solve these problems by using IBM Rational Functional Tester to automatically take screen captures with multiple tooltips attached.
