@Amrita, Keyboard application is separate from App being tested so Keyboard events will not be recorded by Monkeytalk but if you manage to get the source code of keyboard and make it Monkeytalk enabled then keyboard events will also be recorded !!

@hunza basharat that is not latest post see posting date...:)

Comment by hunza basharat on March 31, 2014 at 6:31pm

ramakrishna we can not test any application until the monkeytalk lib is embedded in it. 

Comment by hunza basharat on March 31, 2014 at 5:11pm

@Lalit Sharma 

yeah sure simply add .mts file inside your project. 

You can run the scripts inside the test suits by following commands:

TearDown: This will run the script after every test

StartUp: This will run the script before every test

Test: This will the test script you want to execute.

All above mentioned Commands can run with both Run and RunWith commands and requires a monkeytalk script.

For instance if you have a file and you want to create a test suit with this then simply write. Test Run
