Description

A mobile app.

Operations

The sections below list the built-in methods and properties that you can use as operations for the App object.

Note: You can also view a list and descriptions of the App description properties, for use in object repository descriptions, programmatic descriptions, checkpoint and output value steps, and as argument values for the GetTOProperty and GetROProperty methods.

Common Method ChildObjectsReturns the collection of child objects contained within the object.
Common Method GetAllROProperties

Returns the collection of properties and current values from the object in the application.

Common Method GetROPropertyReturns the current value of the specified description properties from the object in the app.
Common Method GetTOPropertiesReturns the collection of properties and values used to identify the object.
Common Method GetTOPropertyReturns the value of the specified description property from the test object description.

SimulateVideoStarts video camera simulation.
StopSimulateVideoStops camera simulation.
StopSimulateCameraStops video camera simulation.
Common Method ToStringReturns a string that represents the current test object.
Uninstall

Uninstalls the app from the device.

Common Method WaitPropertyWaits until the specified object property achieves the specified value or exceeds the specified timeout before continuing to the next step.
