Understanding the Toolkit Configuration File

To begin developing your toolkit support set, you define a basic toolkit configuration file. You can verify the toolkit configuration file you design against the <Extensibility Accelerator installation folder>\dat\Toolkit.xsd file. (This file is also located in the <UFT installation folder>\dat\Extensibility\Web\Toolkits folder.)

In a toolkit configuration XML, you must define a Control element for each test object class that you plan to use to support controls in your toolkit. Each Control element must include a TestObjectClass attribute that specifies the name of the test object class to which it applies.

The Control elements are contained within one Controls element, which represents the toolkit as a whole.

The toolkit configuration file must provide information that enables UFT to identify which test object class to use for each control in the toolkit. This information can be provided at toolkit level or at control level, as described in the following sections.

The toolkit configuration XML can also contain additional information. A brief summary of the possible content of this XML is provided below and more detail on how to design and use the toolkit configuration XML is provided in the subsequent sections of this guide.

The toolkit specific information can include:

A test object class element can include:
