How can give manual input during testing


I am new on Appium and using it with Android Manager. In my application I have to enter a number manually in a field and each time that number can be different and received on an other device so how I can ask for number during my test execuation

Hi @mijaz,

You may start 2 Appium servers and create 2 drivers’ instances for both devices. When you need to type value from second device, you will get/read it from second driver instance and type it on first device with first driver.


Thanks @Surveyor, but can I give manual input during testing like what we do with JS where dialog open to get the input, some thing like that…

If you run your tests on Java/C#, you may type the input in a console.

However I do not think it’s a good idea to do something manually during an automation test.
