AcxCheckBox description properties

Object description properties can be used in the object repository description, in programmatic descriptions, in checkpoint and output value steps, and as argument values for the GetTOProperty and GetROProperty methods.

The AcxCheckBox test object supports the description properties listed in the table below.

Property Name

Description

abs_x

The object's absolute x-coordinate (left) relative to the screen (in pixels). 0,0 is always the top-left corner of the (primary) monitor.

Note: If you are working with multiple monitors, the coordinate in the secondary monitor is relative to the primary monitor.

For example, given a resolution of 1280 x 1024 in the primary monitor, if the secondary monitor is positioned to the right of the primary monitor, the x-coordinate is 1280 or greater. If the secondary monitor is placed to the left of the primary monitor, the x-coordinate is negative.

abs_y

The object's absolute y-coordinate (top) relative to the screen (in pixels). 0,0 is always the top-left corner of the (primary) monitor.

Note: If you are working with multiple monitors, the coordinate in the secondary monitor is relative to the primary monitor.

For example, given a resolution of 1280x1024 in the primary monitor, if the secondary monitor is positioned below the primary monitor, the y-coordinate is 1024 or greater. If the secondary monitor is placed above the primary monitor, the y-coordinate is negative.

acx_name

The user-readable equivalent of the binary object class identifier. (The value is retrieved by the IOleObject::GetUserType method and is the user-type name of an object for display in user-interface elements, such as menus, list boxes, and dialog boxes.)

Class Name

The object's class.

enabled

Indicates whether the object is enabled.

Possible values:     
    True
    False

focused

Indicates whether the object has the focus.

Possible values:     
    True
    False

height

The object's height (in pixels).

hWnd

The handle of the run-time object's window.

index

The ordinal identifier that UFT assigns to the object to indicate the order in which the object appears relative to other objects with an otherwise identical description. This property can be useful for uniquely identifying an object using programmatic descriptions. This property cannot be used with GetROProperty.

Values begin with 0.

location

The ordinal identifier that UFT assigns to the object to indicate where the object appears within the window, frame, or dialog box. Values are assigned from top to bottom, and left to right. This property cannot be used with GetROProperty.

Values begin with 0.

nativeclass

The object's window class name.

process id

The object's process identifier.

progid

The ActiveX control's ProgID.

TestObjGenType

The object's generic type, for example, text box, list box, or table.

TestObjName

The object's name as it appears in the object repository. This property cannot be used with programmatic descriptions or as a description property for the ChildObjects method.

If the object is not found in the object repository, the TestObjName is defined as follows:

  • If the object is found in the application, UFT uses the value of the property it normally uses when adding this object to the object repository, surrounded by [ ].

  • If the object is not found in the application, UFT uses the value of the object's Class Name property, surrounded by [ ].

text

The text associated with the ActiveX control if the ActiveX control has a text property associated with it. Otherwise the text associated with the object's window (retrieved by WM_GETTEXT).

thread id

The object's thread identifier.

visible

Indicates whether the object is visible.

Possible values:     
    True
    False

visual relations

Represents the test object's visual relations identifier.

Use this property in GetTOProperty and SetTOProperty steps to return or apply a VisualRelationsCollection object for a test object. The VisualRelationsCollection object enables you to retrieve or replace the visual relation identifier settings of a test object during a run session.

Syntax:

SetVRIColl = TestObject.GetTOProperty("visual relations")

TestObject.SetTOProperty "visual relations", VRIColl

For details, see VisualRelationsCollection Object in the Utility Objects section of the HPE UFT Object Model Reference for GUI Testing.

Note: This property is not listed in the Object Spy. It is not retrieved when you use the GetTOProperties method. It cannot be used in the Object Identification dialog box, the description area of the object repository, checkpoint or output value steps, and so on.

width

The object's width (in pixels).

window id

The object's window identifier.

Note: The window id property is unavailable for windowless ActiveX controls.

x

The object's x-coordinate (left) relative to the parent object (in pixels).

y

The object's Y coordinate relative to the parent object (in pixels).
