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 VbComboBox test object supports the description properties listed in the table below.
For a list of the object's native properties and methods see:
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.
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.
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.
The list of all items in the control (separated by a new line character).
The background color of an object.
The object's class.
Indicates whether the object is enabled.
Indicates whether the object has the focus.
Indicates whether the font style is bold.
Indicates whether the font style is italic.
The font used to display text in the control.
The size (in points) of the font used for text displayed in the control.
Indicates whether the font style is strikethrough.
Indicates whether the font style is underlined.
The color of the object's text.
The object's height (in pixels).
The handle of the run-time object's window.
The ordinal identifier that UFT One 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.
Values begin with 0.
Indicates whether the control resizes itself to display partial items.
The number of items contained in the object.
The distance between the internal left edge of an object and the left edge of its container.
The number of items in the list portion of the control.
The index of the currently selected item in the control.
The ordinal identifier that UFT One 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.
Values begin with 0.
Indicates whether the control can be edited.
The object's name.
The object's window class name.
The index of the item most recently added to a control.
The permanent part of the MFC window class.
The constant part of the window title.
The selected item text.
The number of characters selected.
The starting point of the selected text; indicates the position of the insertion point if no text is selected.
The string containing the currently selected text; consists of a zero-length string ("") if no characters are selected.
Indicates whether the elements of a control are automatically sorted alphabetically.
Indicates the display type and behavior of the control.
0 (vbComboDropDown): Dropdown combo box.
1 (vbComboSimple): Simple combo box.
2 (vbComboDrop-DownList): Dropdown list.
The tab order of the object within its parent form.
Indicates whether a user can use the Tab key to give the focus to the object.
An expression that stores any extra data needed for your program. This property is generally used to identify objects.
The object's generic type, for example, text box, list box, or table.
The object's name as it appears in the object repository. This property cannot be used with programmatic descriptions or as a description property for the ChildObjects method.
If the object is not found in the object repository, the TestObjName is defined as follows:
The text displayed in the edit control portion of the combo box.
The text displayed when the mouse pauses over the control.
The distance between the internal top edge of an object and the top edge of its container.
The item that is displayed in the topmost position of the control.
The object's name as set by the developer.
The full hierarchy of vbname with all parent objects.
Indicates whether the object is visible.
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.
SetVRIColl = TestObject.GetTOProperty("visual relations")
TestObject.SetTOProperty "visual relations", VRIColl
For details, see VisualRelationsCollection Object in the Utility section of the Micro Focus UFT One 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.
The object's width (in pixels).
The object's window identifier.
The object's x-coordinate (left) relative to the parent window (in pixels).
The object's y-coordinate (top) relative to the parent window (in pixels).
