SFLFile description properties

Object description properties can be used in the object repository description, in programmatic descriptions, in checkpoint and output value steps, and as argument values for the GetTOProperty and GetROProperty methods.

The SFLFile test object supports the description properties listed in the table below.

Property Name

Description

abs_x

The object's absolute x-coordinate (left) relative to the screen (in pixels). 0,0 is always the top-left corner of the (primary) monitor.

If you are working with multiple monitors, the coordinate in the secondary monitor is relative to the primary monitor.

For example, given a resolution of 1280 x 1024 in the primary monitor, if the secondary monitor is positioned to the right of the primary monitor, the x-coordinate is 1280 or greater. If the secondary monitor is placed to the left of the primary monitor, the x-coordinate is negative.

abs_y

The object's absolute y-coordinate (top) relative to the screen (in pixels). 0,0 is always the top-left corner of the (primary) monitor.

If you are working with multiple monitors, the coordinate in the secondary monitor is relative to the primary monitor.

For example, given a resolution of 1280x1024 in the primary monitor, if the secondary monitor is positioned below the primary monitor, the y-coordinate is 1024 or greater. If the secondary monitor is placed above the primary monitor, the y-coordinate is negative.

class

The object's class (className property).

default value

The initial value of the object, which is set when the object is reset.

disabled

Indicates whether the object is disabled.

Possible values:                     
    True
    False

height

The object's height (in pixels).

html id

The object's HTML identifier.

html tag

The object's HTML tag.

index

The ordinal identifier that UFT assigns to the object to indicate the order in which the object appears in the code relative to other objects with an otherwise identical description. This property cannot be used with GetROProperty.

innerhtml

The HTML code contained between the object's start and end tags.

innertext

The text contained between the object's start and end tags.

location

The ordinal identifier that UFT assigns to the object to indicate where the object appears within the window, frame, or dialog box. Values are assigned from top to bottom, and left to right. This property cannot be used with GetROProperty.

name

The object's name.

outerhtml

The object's HTML code and its content.

outertext

The object's text.

readonly

Indicates whether the content of the object is read-only.

type

The type of object as defined in the HTML input tag.

For example: <input type=button> or <input type=text>

Note: Older browser versions that do not support HTML5 may treat unsupported types of input tags (such as the HTML5 email type) as text. This means that a control might have different properties, depending on the browser you use. For more details, see the Working with Multiple Browsers topic in the Web Add-in User Guide.

For example, in Internet Explorer 9, the HTML5 email input type is treated as a text input type. In Internet Explorer 10, the text input type is treated as an HTML5 email input type. UFT recognizes the WebEdit test object, even though the input type property in the test and the browsers do not match.

value

The object's value.

visible

Indicates whether the object is visible.

Possible values:                     
    True
    False

visual relations

Represents the test object's visual relations identifier.

Use this property in GetTOProperty and SetTOProperty steps to return or apply a VisualRelationsCollection object for a test object. The VisualRelationsCollection object enables you to retrieve or replace the visual relation identifier settings of a test object during a run session.

Syntax:

SetVRIColl = TestObject.GetTOProperty("visual relations")

TestObject.SetTOProperty "visual relations", VRIColl

For details, see VisualRelationsCollection Object in the Utility section of the Micro Focus UFT Object Model Reference for GUI Testing.

This property is not listed in the Object Spy. It is not retrieved when you use the GetTOProperties method. It cannot be used in the Object Identification dialog box, the description area of the object repository, checkpoint or output value steps, and so on.

width

The object's width (in pixels).

x

The object's x-coordinate (left) relative to the frame (in pixels).

xpath

The path to the object in XPath format.

For example: //TR[@id='QTP']/*/INPUT

y

The object's y-coordinate (top) relative to the frame (in pixels).
