Description

Output Value Summary

Summarizes the selected text for the output value. It displays the text you selected when creating the output value, plus the text before and after it. UFT automatically displays the output text in red, and the text before and after the output text in blue.

For text output values in Web-based environments, it displays the text you selected when creating the output value, plus some text before and after it. For text and text area output values in Windows-based environments, it displays the text you selected when creating the output value.

Note:  

  • In Windows-based environments, if there is more than one line of text selected, the Output Value Summary area displays [complex value] instead of the selected text string. You can then click Configure to view and manipulate the actual selected text for the output value.
  • For a text area output value, the output value string contains all the text in the selected area. Therefore, although the Text Output Value Properties and Text Area Output Value Properties dialog boxes are identical, when you create a text area output value, the Text Before and Text After values are not captured.
