Changing the role of a control

The role of a control determines which icon is displayed in the Object Map for a TestObject. You can do this by extending the getRole() method and returning one of the HCL OneTest™ UI predefined role values.

Before you begin

You can extend the methods listed in Table 1:
Table 1. Extensible methods for changing roles
Java .Net
String getRole() string GetRole()

The following Java™ sample changes the icon for the TestObject to a slider icon:

Example

import com.rational.test.ft.domain.*;

public class someProxy extends baseProxy
{
 .
 .
 public String getRole()
 {
     return TestObjectRole.ROLE_SLIDER;
 }

}

The following .Net sample changes the icon for the TestObject to a slider icon:

using Rational.Test.Ft.Domain;

public class AnyProxy:BaseProxy
{
     .
     .
     public override string GetRole()
     {
           return TestObjectRole.ROLE_SLIDER;
     }
}

What to do next

After successfully developing and deploying this proxy code, the icon for the TestObject in the Object map changes to a slider icon.
