Setting up the ManagedFocusApp.cfg configuration file

The configuration file for the ManagedFocusApp is a plain textfile and consists of 5 lines:
  1. full path including the executable of the application which has to be focused
  2. full path including the executable of the hopper application
  3. interval of the focus functionality in milliseconds to be executed
  4. true or false if hopper should start automaticaly
  5. true or false if the old existing history of hopper should be deleted before starting

Steps to run the ManagedFocusApp

  1. The config file, which has to be named as "ManagedFocusApp.cfg", has to be copied along with the executable "ManagedFocusApp.exe" on the device into a to be created folder. The name of it is variable and up to the creator. As a base file the already existing executable from ManagedFocusApp v1.0 can be used.
  1. Hopper itself has to be copied to the device. It can be the same folder where the ManagedFocusApp is located. The executable "Hopper.exe" is not a part of ManagedFocusApp and can be downloaded for free from Microsoft Download Center.
  1. Now setting up the configuration file with valid values.
  1. Start the previously copied executable of your ManagedFocusApp directly on your device.

Results

  1. Hopper automaticaly creates a folder "\testlog", where you can find the logfile (statistics and other info) and a screenshot as bitmap file of the last view of your tested application.
  2. Hopper also shows some messageboxes on success (with statistics about duration, breeds ect.) and on failure.

"Hopper also shows some messageboxes on success (with statistics about duration, breeds ect.) and on failure." When does a Hopper test succeed? Is it possible to set time limit?
