Determining the Toolkit Related Information

When you plan your toolkit support set, begin by deciding the general toolkit related information:

  • Provide a unique name for the toolkit or environment for which you are creating support.

  • UFT One displays the name of your environment in all of the dialog boxes that display lists of add-ins or supported environments. For example, when UFT One opens, it displays the name of your environment as a child of the Web Add-in in the Add-in Manager dialog box and the UFT One user can specify whether to load support for that environment.

  • Decide which controls this toolkit support set will support.

  • Decide what files will contain the JavaScript functions that you write for the toolkit support set.

    • You can specify one default file for the JavaScript functions that implement support for the different UFT One functionalities and the different test object classes. In addition, you can define separate files for your implementation functions for the different functionalities and test object classes.

    • You can specify one file that contains common JavaScript functions that you call from within others.

  • Decide whether to use one JavaScript function for the whole toolkit to match test object classes to the custom controls. For more information, Teaching UFT One to Identify the Test Object Class to Use for a Custom Web Control.

When you design the toolkit support set, you specify this information in the toolkit configuration file. For more information, see Understanding the Toolkit Configuration File.
