Abstract: Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) are popular for enabling comfortable user interactions (UI) of computer-based systems with users. This paper introduces a new approach for modeling GUIs with regular expresion (RE), and moreover, obtaining coverage critaria for GUI testing. The GUI under test is assumed to be modeled by a RE, the symbols of which are semantically interpreted as events. For enriching this RE by information also about states, the RE will be scanned by equivalent FSAs, forwards and backwards. Thereby, the appearing states will be noted as indices of the RE. The resulting coded format of the RE, which is obtained by simultaneous backwards and forwards scanning, contains all information necessary for generating coverage citeria that includes both event and state information. Preliminary experiments show that proposed approach enables to generate more compact test cases at less costs compared with others.
