Data Pane (GUI Testing)

For details about the API testing Data Pane interface, see Data Pane (API Testing). For details about the BPT Data pane interface, see Data Pane (BPT in UFT).

Relevant for: GUI tests and scripted GUI components

Insert data table parameters and output values to your test to create a data-driven test or action that runs several times using the data you supply.

Use the Data pane in the same way as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, including inserting formulas into cells.

To Access
  1. Ensure that a GUI test, action, or component is in focus in the document pane or selected in the Solution Explorer.

  2. Click the Data toolbar button.

Important information
  • Right-click anywhere in the Data pane to access menus and commands.

  • Each row in the table represents the set of values that UFT submits for the parameterized arguments during a single iteration of the test or action.

  • Each column in the table represents the list of values for a single parameterized argument. The column header is the parameter name.

  • Use the following utility objects to manipulate data: DataTable, DTSheet, and DTParameter

  • Columns without a parameter name in the column header are not used with data table parameters.
