Default value = micLeftBtn
Modifier Optional. A String value.

The keyboard modifier that is pressed during the Drag operation.

Possible values:

  • micAlt
  • micCtrl
  • micShift

Return Type

None

IMPORTANT

Drag and Drop operations are performed as a coupled step. Inserting one operation without the other causes an error to occur in the run session.

UFT supports the following scenarios:

General Note:

UFT alsways runs Drag and Drop steps using the mouse API, even if you defined the Replay type as Event in the Run settings section of the Web > Advanced pane (Tools > Options > GUI Testing tab > Web pane > Advanced node).

Notes for Scenario A:

  • When recording: You cannot record crossobject or cross-frame types of drag and drop oeprations (operations in which you try to drop an object on another object or in aother frame). You can, however, insert these types of Drop steps manually. Note that it may be helfup to record a drag and drop operation on the object in order to determine valid coordinates for the Drag operation step. You will need to delete the recorded Drop step, though, and manually add a new Drop step for the target object instead.
  • When running: If the application being tested supports scrolling, then UFT supports scroplling when the Drag and Drop test objects are both located in the same frame. UFT drags the Drag object to the edge of the frame, waits for the Drop object to appear, and drops the Drag object onto the Drop object. If the application being tested does not support scrolling, then UFT displays an error message when it reaches a step that requires scrolling.
  • Run session. If you want to drag a test object from one frame to another, UFT tries to make both the Drag and Drop objects visible in their frames prior to performing the Drag and Drop operation. If the two objects cannot be viewed simultaneously (for example, because the browser window is too small), the step will fail.

Notes for Scenario B and Scenario C:

  • If the screen resolution during a run session is not the same as the screen resolution during the recording session, then the size of the frame may be different during the run session as compared to the recording session. In this case, the target location coordinates may be different during the run session, and this may cause the test steps to fail.
  • During a run session, if the coordinates of a Drop step are located outside the visible frame area (for example, because your application changed), then the step may not run accurately. To solve this, fix the specified coordinates, as needed. The test object can be dragged only within the visible area of the frame object. Dragging the object to the edge of a window or frame does not cause the area to scroll (as it does in Scenario A).

Drop Method

Description

Performs the 'drop' part of a drag and drop operation.

Syntax

object.Drop [x], [y]

Arguments

Parameter Description
x Optional. An integer value.
The x-coordinate of the target object on which the dragged object is dropped. If the dragged and dropped object is the same object, then the x-coordinate is relative to the upper left corner in the source location prior to being dragged.
Default value = 0
y Optional. An integer value.
The y-coordinate of the target boject on which the dragged object is dropped. If the dragged and dropped object is the same object, then the y-coordinate is relative to the upper left corner in the source location prior to being dragged.
Default value = 0

Return Type

None

IMPORTANT

Drag and Drop operations are performed as a coupled step. Inserting one operation without the other causes and error to occur. For more information on Drag and Drop operations, see Drag Method.
