Querying values of object properties

Components in the application-under-test, such as dialog boxes, command buttons, and labels, have associated pieces of information called properties. Properties have a name and a value. This topic provides examples of why you may want to modify your script to access an object property.

You can retrieve the value of a property programmatically by calling the getProperty method, which has the following syntax:

Object getProperty(String propertyName);

The following example uses the getProperty method to test whether a value of a property is being captured and reproduced correctly. The call to getProperty retrieves the value of the text property associated with the yourOrderHasBeenReceivedYourOr object.

HCL OneTest UI also supports a setProperty method, but do not use it unless you are sure of the result. This method calls internal methods that may violate the integrity of the application-under-test.
