    Hi ,
    I would like answer the questiions asked by Rajini
    Complile module usage : we use it to create user defined functions to accomplish the task which we cant do by the predefined functions. For this we have to write the code first and save it then in test properties we have to select the complied module option and then by using the load function in an other
    window then we have to call that userdefinied function

    Answer for Batch module : This option is used to run multiple tests at in a sequence where manual intervention is not needed.

    If u have any doubt u can mail to this

    Hello Divya,
    In context sensitive mode Winrunner captues mouse clicks and key board inputs.It is a default recording mode.In this mode Winrunner captures the operation with GUI objects like push button,radio button etc.In this mode we plan reuse the tests in different versions of applications.
    In Analog recording mode winrunner captures mouse movements.In this mode Winrunner captures the oparation with non GUI objects like bitmaps ,signatures, graphs etc. It is not default but we can make it default from settings.
