Comparing Two Screen Results

A common problem in regression testing is to compare two results that typically are arrived at by differnt methods, and show up on different screens. This is more complex that the usual case, when you know the correct value in advance and all you need to do is to validate it against the current value. In this more-complex case you need to compare TWO values, both computed in real-time, not known in advance, and showing up on two separate screens.

Here is a description of how this is done in eValid using the DOM manipulation features that are included in eValid V9 release: Result Value Validation Using DOM Commands.
