Parameter Options Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests and scripted GUI components

This dialog box enables you to define settings for a test/action parameter, a data table parameter, an environment parameter, or a random number parameter.

To access
  1. Ensure that a GUI action is in focus in the document pane.

  2. Use one of the following:

    • For argument values: In the Keyword View, click the Configure the value button  .

    • For object property values: In the Object Repository Window, select the object property value you want to parameterize and click the Configure the value button  .

    • For checkpoints: In the Configure value area of the Checkpoint Properties dialog box, select the Parameter radio button and click the Parameter Options button  .

    • For output value storage locations: In the Object Repository Window, select the output object property value you want to parameterize and click the Modify button in the Configure value area.

Note: This dialog appears when using a scripted component only for checkpoints.

Important information
  • You can also use test or action parameter variables using parameterization objects and methods in the Editor. For details, see the specific test object methods and properties in the UFT Object Model Reference for GUI Testing.

  • You cannot select Use Data Table formula if Regular expression is selected.

  • The value of an environment variable remains the same throughout the test run, regardless of the number of iterations, unless you change the value of the variable programmatically in your script.

  • Random number parameters are not appropriate for non-numeric values, such as text or hypertext links.

  • If you select an existing parameter in your test, when you modify the settings in this dialog box, all instances of that parameter are affected.
