culebra: the magical drag

This time we are demonstrating how to include drag() method calls in the generated test script.

The little secret, and what adds some "magic" is that units of the generated method call can be selected between DIP (density-independent pixels, also known as dp) or PX (pixels). The former, allows to give the generated test some independence of the physical screen size it is running on by applying the inverse relationship between pixels and density. That is, when a point it's touched on the screen, the actual density it used to calculate the touched points in DIPs and used to provide the arguments for the drag() method.

This is the culebra auto-generated script after the interactions showed in the screencast are performed.

If you inspect the script you will notice that now the drag() method includes another argument, which is 0 in this case and indicates the orientation of the device, but we will be covering this in a future post.

And this is the screencast showing the emulator window (I used an emulator to easily capture the content but you can use any device), a terminal window where I run culebra and the culebra window where the interaction takes place.
