Description

Select the parent of the virtual object

Enables you to select an object in the tree as the parent object. The coordinates of the virtual object outline are relative to the parent object.

Selected parent

Indicates the name of the object selected as the parent object (read-only).

Identify object using
  • Entire parent hierarchy. Select this radio button to identify the virtual object in one occurrence only. UFT identifies the virtual object only if it has the exact parent hierarchy.

    For example, if the virtual object is defined using Browser("A").Page("B").Image("C"), UFT does not recognize it if the hierarchy changes to Browser("X").Page("B").Image("C").

  • Parent only. Select this radio button to identify all occurrences of the virtual object. UFT identifies the virtual object using its direct parent only, regardless of the entire parent hierarchy.

    For example, if the virtual object was defined using Browser("A").Page("B").Image("C"), UFT recognizes the virtual object even if the hierarchy changes to Browser("X").Page("Y").Image("C").
