Property sets

The lower (or right) pane of the Test Object Map window contains property sets, which provide information about the selected object.
There are two property set tabs:
  • Recognition
  • Administrative

The Recognition tab contains the recognition data used by HCL OneTest™ UI. The Administrative tab contains the internal administrative data of the object. These properties are used to manage and describe the test object. Updating the properties on this tab affects the future code generation of scripts that use this test object. For example, updating the Descriptive Name causes the new name to be used the next time this test object is added to a script, depending on the template used.

Recognition and administrative data are the properties from the object map that are used to locate and manage this test object in the context of the associated script. For information, see Using ScriptAssure (TM).

To edit a value in either of the tabs, double-click the value.

If you select a recognition property value and right-click, you can use any of these various options:

Open -- Displays the value in a separate window, which enables you to see long lines of text.

Case Sensitive Regular Expression Case Sensitive Regular Expression -- Sets case-sensitive comparison in regular expressions on and off.

Evaluate Regular Expression Evaluate Regular Expression -- Starts the Regular Expression Evaluator, which enables you to test the regular expression before you try it in a test object find.

Convert Value to Regular Expression Convert Value to Regular Expression -- Converts the recognition property value in the Updated Test Object Properties grid to a regular expression. For more information, see Replacing an Exact-Match Property with a Pattern.

Undo Regular Expression Undo Regular Expression -- Restores the original value of the regular expression.

Convert Value to Numeric Range Convert Value to Numeric Range -- Converts the recognition property value in the Updated Test Object Properties grid to a numeric range. For more information, see Replacing an Exact-Match Property with a Pattern.

Undo Numeric Range Undo Numeric Range -- Converts the numeric range back to the original value.

You can change a property value to a regular expression or numeric range by using the test object map editor. For information, see Replacing an Exact-Match Property with a Pattern.

When a test object changes, you can update its recognition properties in the application-under-test.

You can add a descriptive name as a property on the Administrative tab for an object.

You can also specify color settings for several elements in a test object map.
