Relevant for: GUI tests and components
This dialog box enables you to edit your checkpoint properties for a selected checkpoint object.
The advanced properties of standard checkpoint objects cannot be viewed or edited in ALM. Therefore, if one or more advanced properties are selected in a standard checkpoint object, and an ALM user views its properties in ALM, the dialog box displays text indicating that some properties are not shown.
This dialog box has the following areas:
The name that UFT assigns to the checkpoint object. By default, the name is the same as the name of the object on which the checkpoint step is being performed. You can specify a different name for the checkpoint object or accept the default name.
The type of object (read-only).
Note for keyword components: The class of the object is not displayed in ALM.
Find in Repository. Displays the checkpoint object in its object repository. This option is only available when editing an existing checkpoint step.
Note for keyword components: This option only available in advanced mode.
(only available for Keyword components
Advanced Mode/Simple Mode. Toggles the dialog box between Advanced Mode and Simple Mode.
The Properties grid area displays the properties to check in the object.
For standard checkpoints see Properties Grid Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Standard, Page, and Image Checkpoints.
For bitmap checkpoints, see Bitmap Options Section (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Bitmap Checkpoints.
For table checkpoints see Properties Grid Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Table Checkpoints.
For text or text area checkpoints, see Checkpoint Summary Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Text/Text Area Checkpoints.
For file content checkpoints, see File Content Editor (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - File Content Checkpoints.
For database checkpoints, see Properties Grid Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Database Checkpoints.
For page checkpoints, see Properties Grid Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Standard, Page, and Image Checkpoints.
For accessibility checkpoints, see Current Settings Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Accessibility Checkpoints.
For XML checkpoints, see XML Tree/Options Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - XML Checkpoints.
The Configure Value area displays the options to configure the value of the object to be checked.
For a standard checkpoint, see Configure Value Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Standard/Image Checkpoints.
For a bitmap, file content, accessibility, or XML checkpoint, this area is not applicable.
For a table or database checkpoint, see Configure Value Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Table/Database Checkpoints.
For a text or text area checkpoint, see Checkpoint Options Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Text/Text Area Checkpoints.
For a page checkpoint, see Configure Value Area (Checkpoint Properties Dialog Box) - Page Checkpoints.
Note: If you are working with a keyword GUI component, this option is available only in Advanced Mode.
User interface elements are described below:
Specifies the time interval (in seconds) during which UFT attempts to perform the checkpoint successfully. UFT continues to perform the checkpoint until it passes or until the timeout occurs. If the checkpoint does not pass before the timeout occurs, the checkpoint fails.
Example: Suppose it takes some time for an object to achieve an expected state. Increasing the checkpoint timeout value in this case can help ensure that the object has sufficient time to achieve that state, enabling the checkpoint to pass (if the data matches) before the maximum timeout is reached.
If you specify a checkpoint timeout other than 0, and the checkpoint fails, the run results display information on the checkpoint timeout.
The maximum allowed timeout for a checkpoint is 99999 seconds.
Specifies whether to insert the checkpoint step before or after the currently selected step. The default value is Before current step.
Available only when inserting a new checkpoint step during an editing session. During a recording session, the checkpoint step is always inserted as the next step.
