hello, yes  am reading the list ... :-)

actually i just found a bug in our application that prevented the whole
setup i described to work -> once this is fixed i will retry to use
webtests followFrame functionality
-> somehow webtest ( even by producing errors ) helped me to test my
application and find a bug, which is nice :-)

you will hear from me in about 2 weeks time ...

thanks so far,

[does Tobias really read the mailing list?]

Unless you use relative="true", followFrame will look for a frame with the
given name from the top window of the current page. Therefore
<followFrame name="B"/>
should work even if the current response is the content of frame C.

Normally after an invoke of page A, page A should become the current
response even if page A contains iframe B and C. The logic to guess which
page should be considered "naturally" as the current response is a bit
complicated and I can imagine that it's not 100% safe. Please open a bug
issue if you can reproduce the problem with minimal html pages.


PS: which version of webtest do you use?
