Configure Value Area

Relevant for: GUI tests and components

This area enables you to configure object property values or the values of the operation arguments defined for the step.

To access

This area is available in many dialog boxes, for example, the various Checkpoint Properties and Output Value dialog boxes, the various Parameter Options dialog boxes, the Parameterization / Properties Dialog Box (Checkpoints) - Keyword Components (for components), the Data Driver Wizard, and so on.

You can edit a value directly in the Constant or Parameter box or by clicking the Constant Value Options button . This also enables you to define a string value or complex value as a regular expression.

User interface elements are described below:

UI Elements

Description

Constant

A manually defined value that remains unchanged for the duration of the run. In certain contexts, you can define a constant value using a regular expression.

If the entire value cannot be displayed in the Constant box, it is shown as [complex value]. For example, the value of a list's all items property is a multi-line value, where each line contains the value of an item in the list.

Parameter

A value that is defined or generated externally and is retrieved during a run session. For example, a parameter value may be defined in an external file or generated by UFT One.

The Parameter box displays:

  • The current parameter definition for a value that is already parameterized.
  • The default parameter definition for a value that is not yet parameterized.

Constant Value Options/Parameter Options. Opens the Constant Value Options or Parameter Options dialog boxes to edit the value for a constant value, or select a different parameter type or modify the parameter settings for a parameter value.

Note: When editing a constant value, you can define string or complex value as a regular expression.

Compare image content
(for image checkpoints only)

Enables you to compare the expected image source file with the actual image source file. If the expected and actual images are different, UFT One displays them both in the run results. If the images are identical, only one graphic is displayed.
