Insight object identification

In UFT, you can use Insight, which is an image-based identification ability, to recognize objects in your application. Insight identifies objects based on what they look like, instead of using the object properties which are part of the application/object design. Insight object identification is particularly useful if your application is designed with a technology that UFT does not suppport or with an application running on a remote computer.

When you use Insight object identification, UFT stores an image of the object as part of the Insight test object it creates. Then, when running the test, UFT uses the image as the main object property to identify the object in the application in run-time.

You can create Insight objects both in the object repository or when recording. In this lesson, you will be working only with adding Insight objects in the object repository.
