Smart Identification

In some situations, the description stored in the test might not uniquely identify an object in the application. This can occur, for example, if the user manually modified the description values of the test object's description properties in the object repository, or if the application changed after the test was created. A UFT user can configure Smart Identification to enable UFT to identify an object in the application even if the description stored with the test no longer uniquely identifies the object.

To support Smart Identification in cases when there is more than one object in the application that matches the stored description, implement FindObjectId2 to return multiple object IDs.
