Toolkit Support Properties Designer

This designer enables you to define settings that affect how UFT treats this toolkit support set.

To access

Select View > Toolkit Support Properties.

Important information
  • The information you define in this dialog box is stored in the XML files in your toolkit support set.

  • The settings in this dialog box are optional. If you do not set them, UFT uses default values.

How to Create or Update Support for a Custom Toolkit

User interface elements are described below:

UI Elements

Description

Common implementation file

The name of a file that contains shared JavaScript functions called from your other implementation functions. (Optional)

You cannot modify this value directly.

Use the Import File button to browse to and select the relevant JavaScript file.

Use the Clear button to clear the edit box.

The corresponding XML attribute in the toolkit configuration XML file is cleared, but the JavaScript file is not removed from the project.

Stored in: A Control\Settings\Variable element named common_file in the toolkit configuration XML file

Import File. Enables you to browse to and select a JavaScript file.

The file must be located in the project's JavaScript folder to be properly deployed. Therefore, if you select a file from another location, a local copy of the file is immediately created in the JavaScript folder.

If the file that you import has the same name as an existing file in this folder, Extensibility Accelerator appends a period (.) and a number to the imported file name (before the .js file extension).

Toolkit priority

The priority of the toolkit. When UFT attempts to identify the test object class mapped to a custom control, it searches in the different toolkits in the order of their priority (highest number first).

Default: 100

Note: In this edit box, you can type only numeric characters.

Stored in: priority attribute of the Controls element in the toolkit configuration XML file

Toolkit description

A description of the toolkit. UFT displays this description in the Add-in Manager dialog box when the toolkit support set's environment name is selected.

If you are developing this toolkit support set for distribution, include a Provided by clause indicating the relevant person or company.

Additionally, you might want to include a version number in this description.

Stored in: Controls\Description elements in the toolkit configuration XML file

Test object class priority

The priority of the test object classes defined in the test object configuration XML file. The priority is used if there are conflicts with other XML files (multiple test object classes defined with the same name).

Default: 0 (the lowest priority)

Note: In this edit box, you can type only numeric characters.

Stored in: Priority attribute of the TypeInformation element in the test object configuration XML file

Development mode - Override UFT Object Identification definitions

Specifies whether the user is in development mode.

  • Select this option when you deploy the toolkit support set during development stages. This ensures that if you modified attributes of IdentificationProperty elements in the test object configuration XML file, UFT uses all of the changes you made.

  • Make sure to clear this option before deploying the toolkit support set for regular use. This prevents the settings in the test object configuration XML file from overwriting any changes that the UFT user makes in the Object Identification dialog box.

For details, see the section on modifying deployed support in the Micro Focus UFT  Web Add-in Extensibility Developer Guide.
