Configure Emulator Classes Page

This wizard page enables you to specify emulator class information. UFT uses this information to locate classes on the emulator screen. By identifying the business components of the terminal emulator window, UFT distinguishes between the window of the terminal emulator and the screens in the host application.

Important information

You identify the business components of the emulator by clicking the pointing hand and then clicking the corresponding object on your terminal emulator window.

Description

<emulator class options>

You identify the business components of the emulator by clicking the pointing hand and then clicking the corresponding object on your terminal emulator window.

  • Main window class. The uppermost title bar of the main emulator window.
  • Text window class. The text within the emulator screen.
  • Toolbar class. The terminal emulator's toolbar (if applicable).
  • Status bar class. The lowest status bar of the main emulator window (if applicable).
Emulator Process Image Name

The process name for the emulator. (The wizard detects the process name for the emulator and displays it in this box after identifying the emulator main window class.)

UFT uses this process name to identify the correct process for this terminal emulator when recording and running tests or business components.

Make sure that the displayed process name is correct for this emulator.

You can view the image names of the currently loaded processes in the Image Name column of the Windows Task Manager Processes tab.

Configure Emulator Screen

Select this check box to configure your emulator screen correctly for use with UFT if:

  • Your emulator does not support HLLAPI.
  • Your emulator supports HLLAPI, but you want to review or change the configuration settings for the emulator screen.

If you do not select this check box, the Terminal Emulator Add-in automatically:

  1. Retrieves the configuration settings for the emulator screen.
  2. Adjusts the screen size and alignment using a proprietary algorithm with the settings retrieved for the emulator. These settings are normally correct, so you may not need to select this check box.
