Sometimes when you have a function that you use alot, it might be nice to have it color coded in code like the other lr_* commands.
I looked for a solution to this for awhile but didn’t find anything relating to VuGen and Syntax Highlight things, so I started digging a little deeper into VuGen’s configs and came up with a half-way solution to this.

I recently got Windows 7 x64 installed on my laptop, and as per information from HP LoadRunner v9.52 does NOT work with Windows 7, let alone x64 – So I got myself a Virtual Machine installed, where I have Win XP x86 for LoadRunner work.
Beeing a person who believes software should work in diverse environments, I also tried installing LoadRunner on the Win 7 machine, specifically Analysis and VuGen Read More »
Most people do not know that LR supports overriding existing functions with custom ones in a very easy way.
I had a situation where I had a pre-made script that had fixed think-time values for the lr_think_time() calls, and they of course were completely wrong. So my problem was that I had a lot of lr_think_time() places and I didn’t want to go through them all myself.Read More »
This article extends my previous post on Using a Custom DLL in LoadRunner and now shows by example how a DLL is actually created in Delphi and used from LoadRunner.
The DLL I’ll create here is a simple stub with a few basic functions and can serve as a template for any type of DLL that you want to create.
I’ll show how to avoid the most common problems of sending/retrieving strings to/from the DLL as well as how to handle the Unicode situation with D2009 and D2010 (LR is not Unicode enabled).Read More »
One of my colleagues at work was testing a solution that obfuscated passwords using the SHA1 algorithm, and was looking for a suitable solution to replicate this with LoadRunner. As I’ve used SHA1 before for other things, I promised to look around and see if I could help out.
As it turns out a suitable source was found and I made the necessary changes to the code to make it work in LoadRunner. A big thank you to Paul E. Jones for providing a free SHA1 implementation.Read More »

In one of my recent assignments I was asked to investigate how the SMTP vuser type behaves in LoadRunner. The need was to send alot of EMail messages to a SMTP server, and specifically the CC and BCC fields where important.
As it turns out the SMTP implementation in LoadRunner (v8.1 and v9.5x) does not quite follow the standard when it comes to the CC and BCC headers.Read More »
