UIAComboBox description properties

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

For a list of the object's internal properties and methods see:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee671621(v=vs.85).aspx#RequiredCheckBoxControlPatterns

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.

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.
