Creating tests or components

Relevant for: GUI tests and components

Can I use UFT on virtual machine or a virtualized environment.

Yes. Check the Unified Functional Testing Product Availability Matrix for the list of supported environment.

How can I record on objects or environments not supported by UFT?

  • Install and load any of the add-ins that are available for UFT

  • Map objects of an unidentified or custom class to standard Windows classes. For details on object mapping, see Test object mapping for unidentified or custom classes.

  • Use Insight recording mode.

  • Use UI Automation recording mode (for Windows-based technologies that have implemented the UI Automation interfaces).

  • Use add-in extensibility to extend UFT built-in support for various objects.

  • Define virtual objects for objects that behave like test objects, and then record in the normal recording mode. For details on defining virtual objects, see Virtual Objects.

  • You can record your clicks and keyboard input based on coordinates in the low-level or analog recording modes.

How can I launch an application from a test or component?

  • Configure the Record and Run Settings for your technology to automatically open an application

  • In a GUI test or scripted GUI component, add a SystemUtil step, such as:

    SystemUtil.Run "D:\My Music\Breathe.mp3","","D:\My Music\Details","open" 
  • In a keyword GUI component, select Operation from the Item column, select OpenApp from the Operation column, and then enter the full path in the Value column, for example:

    %ProgramFiles%\Micro Focus\Unified Functional Testing\samples\flight\app\flight4a.exe

How does UFT capture user processes in Web pages?

UFT hooks into your selected browser. As the user navigates the Web-based application, UFT records the user operations. (For details on modifying which user operations are recorded, see the section on configuring Web event recording in the Unified Functional Testing Add-ins Guide.) UFT can then run the test or component by running the steps as they originally occurred.
