Properties tab (Test Object Class designer)

This tab enables you to design the identification properties of your test object class. You can:

  • Define the list of identification properties for your test object class.

  • Add or remove properties or select base class properties to inherit and include in the list.
  • Decide on the use of properties. For example: Which properties are included in test object descriptions, which can be verified in checkpoints, and used in output values, and which should be used for Smart Identification.

  • Optionally, define advanced options.

The information you define in this tab is stored in the XML files in your toolkit support set.

For each property that you add or inherit, JavaScript code segments are added in the relevant JavaScript file to the function that you implement to retrieve the property values from the control. (If you use the advanced options to customize the name of the implementation function or file, the code segments are not added).

Click the Implementation Code button to access the function and implement it to retrieve the property values. For details, see Implement the JavaScript retrieval function.

Note: You must also implement a JavaScript function that retrieves the values of the properties from the control. For details, see the step Implement the JavaScript retrieval function in Design test object class identification properties.

To access

To access the Properties tab:

  1. In the Class View, add a new test object class or double-click an existing one.
    The test object class designer opens.

  2. In the test object class designer, select the Properties tab.

To access the advanced options, click Advanced Options.

Important information
  • To prevent the property grouping that you define in this tab from overwriting changes that the UFT One user makes in the Object Identification dialog box, clear the Development mode option in the Toolkit Support Properties designer before deploying the toolkit support set for regular use.

    For a more detailed explanation, see the UFT One  Web Add-in Extensibility Developer Guide.

  • Make sure to visit each tab in the test object class designer to ensure that all of the test object class details are defined correctly.
    A red asterisk next to the name of the tab acts as a reminder that you have not yet visited this tab.
