Toolbox Pane (GUI Testing)

Relevant for: GUI actions, components, and function libraries

What is the Toolbox Pane The Toolbox pane displays test objects and functions available to your document sorted alphabetically. You can view these items, open them in the object repository, action, or function library in which they are defined, or use them to add steps to your document (by dragging or copying the item into the document pane).

When you should use Toolbox? Use the Toolbox pane to display available test objects and functions to add to your test.

Note: For details about the API testing Toolbox pane, see Toolbox Pane (API Testing) . For details about the business process testing Toolbox pane, see Toolbox Pane (BPT in UFT).
