Monitoring Citrix Apps

Hi

Can Cobra be used to monitor Citrix applications? On the client workstation the window appears as a bitmap (the internal control hierarchy is not enumerable) so script steps need to check against bitmap captures of regions of the UI.

Thanks

In VMware, they also install Cobra inside the client workstation and send commands to the remote Cobra. Second way, internally they use Loong. Unfortunately this code never got open sourced. I keep bugging the author, but haven't got any for more than 3 years.

From what I can tell, Cobra peers into the client control structure. Since our application is delivered via Citrix, inspection of the client gui must be done using image comparisons. Does Cobra support using images to detect the state of the client?

Not with released version of Cobra
