CommonIdentification Element


Test object identification information at the toolkit level.

Important Information

This element specifies the function that can be called to identify which test object class to use for a control, instead of calling a separate function specified in each Control element.

  • Before the function is called to perform the identification, the Identification\Conditions elements in all of the Control elements are checked, in case the test object class that represents the control can be identified without calling the function.
  • If a function is defined in this element, no functions defined specifically in Control elements are called to perform identification.

You can specify a path relative to the <UFT installation folder>\dat\Extensibility\Web\Toolkits\<Toolkit name> folder.

function string optional   The name of the implementation function.
type string optional javascript The type of implementation function.
