Select Learn Mode Dialog Box

Relevant for: GUI tests and components

This dialog box enables you to specify which learning mode to use when adding an Insight test object to the object repository.

  • When using the automatic mode, you click on the control in the application and UFT automatically determines the borders of the control.
  • When using the manual mode, you draw a rectangle around the control in the application, specifying the borders of the control.

In both cases, UFT takes a snapshot of the control within the application and the Add Insight Test Object dialog box opens, enabling you to adjust the image that will be saved with the new test object.

Note: To display the Select Learn Mode dialog box if it does not open when you click these buttons, select Tools > Options > GUITesting tab > Insight node and then select Display Select Learn Mode dialog box.
