Working with Published Properties to Support Test Object Methods and Identification Properties

UFT interacts with the application's controls by setting and retrieving the published properties provided by the Agent Object and the control itself. UFT first accesses the published properties of the Agent Object and then, if necessary, the published properties of the Delphi object.
