WinCheckBox 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 WinCheckBox 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.

acc_name

The object's name, available for windowless objects only.

Note: This property is not available in the Object Identification and Define New Test Object dialog boxes.

attached text

The static text that is attached to a control.

checked

The check box status.

Possible values:
    ON: Selected
    OFF: Cleared
    DIMMED: Disabled

enabled

Indicates whether the object is enabled.

Possible values:     
    True
    False

focused

Indicates whether the object has the focus.

Possible values:     
    True
    False

fulltypename The full type name of the object.

height

The object's height (in pixels).

index

The ordinal identifier that UFT assigns to the object to indicate the order in which the object appears in the code relative to other objects with an otherwise identical description. 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.

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 object.

typename The type name of the object.

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 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).

x

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

y

The object's y-coordinate (top) relative to the parent window (in pixels).
