Text Area Checkpoint

Enables you to check that a text string appears within a defined area in a Windows application, according to specified criteria.

When checking text displayed in a Windows-based application, it is often advisable to define a text area larger than the actual text you want UFT to check.

You then use the Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box to configure the relative position of the Checked Text within the captured area.

During a run session, UFT checks for the selected text within the defined area, according to the settings you configured.

Text Checkpoint

Enables you to check that the text is displayed in a screen, window, or Web page, according to specified criteria.

For example, suppose you want to check the third occurrence of a particular text string in a page. To check for this string, you can specify which text precedes and/or follows it and to which occurrence of the specified text string you are referring.

Text recognition is not supported for objects in the Active Screen.
