Extending UFT object identification
Relevant for: GUI tests and components
UFT One uses an object's description properties to locate it in an application, and then maps these properties to a test object type.
UFT One provides numerous types of test objects across many technologies. However, there are times when UFT One cannot locate or learn an object in your application.
UFT One does not support the technology, or the technology version
UFT One cannot uniquely identify the object
UFT One identifies the object at too basic a level, such as identifying a table control as a general Object
In cases such as these, use one of the following methods to create test objects, and by extension meaningful functional tests:
Insight, an image-based object recognition method. For details, see Identifying objects using Insight.
Text objects, and OCR-based text recognition method. For details, see Text test objects.
Support for the Microsoft UI Automation framework. For details, see UI Automation in UFT One.
Alternatively, use Artificial Intelligence-based testing. For details, see AI-based testing in UFT One.
