WebArea 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 WebArea test object supports the description properties listed in the table below.

For a list of the run-time object's native properties and methods see:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms535185.aspx

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.

alt

The object's tooltip text.

class

The object's class (className property).

coords

The coordinates of the WebArea's vertices (points).

For example: 20,40,10,50,60,70

css

The path to the object in CSS format.

For example: tr.BPTRow input

Note: This property can only be used in the object repository description and in programmatic descriptions. It cannot be used in checkpoints or output values, or as argument values for the GetTOProperty and GetROProperty methods.

height

The object's height (in pixels).

href

The location to which the browser navigates when the object is clicked.

html id

The object's HTML identifier.

html tag

The object's HTML tag.

image type

The image type.

Possible value:                     
    Client side

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.

innerhtml

The HTML code contained between the object's start and end tags.

innertext

The text contained between the object's start and end tags.

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.

map name

The name of the map element the image uses to define the area inside the image (the WebArea).

outerhtml

The object's HTML code and its content.

outertext

The object's text.

RepositoryName

The name of the object as it is stored in the object repository.

Note: This property is relevant only when working in the Siebel Test Automation environment with the Siebel Add-in loaded.

role The function of the specified object.

SiebelObjType

The type of object that the HTML element represents.

Note: This property is relevant only when working in the Siebel Test Automation environment with the Siebel Add-in loaded.

src

The image source, i.e., the URL address of the image file.

target

The target frame of the navigation.

title

The object's title.

UIName

The name of the object as it appears in the user interface.

Note: This property is relevant only when working in the Siebel Test Automation environment with the Siebel Add-in loaded.

url

The URL of the Web area. Note that unlike the href property, the url property can contain dynamic suffixes.

visible

Indicates whether the object is visible.

Note: Only True and False are valid values for this property. 1 and 0 are not valid values.

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).

xpath

The path to the object in XPath format.

For example: //TR[@id='QTP']/*/INPUT

x

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

y

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