Re: Broken link check using QTP

1. You may use automatic page checkpoint for broken links.
It will automatically check for broken links on each page while recording.
2. Following code can be used to acheive it:
''Find out all the links in the page using ChildObjects
Set oLink = Description.Create
oLink("micclass").Value = "Link"
Set oAllLinks = Browser("Browser").Page("HomePage").ChildObjects(oLink)

'Find out the count of links
iTotalLinks = oAllLinks.Count

'Loop through all the links to find if the link is broken or not
For i=0 to iTotalLinks - 1

'Find out the url for the link
sURL = oAllLinks(i).GetROProperty("url")

'Create a WinHTTP Request using the link's URL
Set objWinHTTP = CreateObject("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.6.3")
objWinHTTP.Open "GET", sURL, False
objWinHTTP.SetRequestHeader "User-Agent", "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Windows NT 6.3)"

'Send the Request to the Server and capture the response
iReturnVal = objWinHTTP.Status

'Find out if the Link exists or is broken
If iReturnVal = 200 Then
msgbox "Link - " & sURL & " Exists"
ElseIf iReturnVal = 404 Then
msgbox "Link - " & sURL & " is Broken"
msgbox "Code" - iReturnVal
End If

Set objWinHTTP = Nothing


3. Checking for Broken Link (http://www.learnqtp.com/how-to-identify-broken-links-in-qtp/)

The above link is having detailed steps to validate the broken link in each page while navigating during the run session

We can observe the list of broken links in each page checkpoint results including the name and URL of the broken links ( so that we can check manually)
