2.5 Window connection of Windows


Before embedding the window, first minimize other irrelevant windows, and keep only the AirtestIDE and the window to be tested active on the desktop.If the function of Windows Window One-Click Embedding is abnormal, such as the window is embedded and the click is invalid, or the software is given an error when embedding, please use the Windows Window No Embedded Connection scheme.

1. One-Click Embedding of Windows Window


  • Click the Select Window button and AirtestIDE will enter the window selection state.
  • As the mouse moves, there will be a green thin wire frame, and the real-time frame will select the window corresponding to the mouse position.
  • After the green frame is moved to the target window, click the left mouse button to complete the embedding.

In the state where the green box is displayed for window selection, click the keyboard's esc button or the right mouse button to exit the state.

If it is difficult to select the window to be tested, you can minimize the other unrelated software on the desktop, activate only the AirtestIDE and the window to be tested, and then connect, which can improve the accuracy.

2. No Embedded Connection of Windows Window

Many desktop softwares have different implementations, so there may be an exception after the one-click embedding of Windows window, such as a click failure after the window is embedded, or the software reports an error when embedding.

At this point, you can use the scheme- No Embedded Connection of Windows Window to try again. The steps are as follows:


  • Drop this menu "Setting"-"Option"-"Device"
  • Check Connect windows without embedding,as shown in the figure:


  • After saving the settings, perform the window connection operation again, that is, click the selected window button and use the green box to select the window to be tested. At this point, the window will not be embedded in the IDE and can be operated normally.
  • Click Window list selection and a list of current windows will pop up.
  • Select the target window and confirm the embedding. (Subsequently the game screen circle may need to be provided).
