By default, UFT recognizes a grid as a WbfGrid test object if:

OR

If your grid does not meet one of these criteria, UFT may recognize your grid as a WebTable test object.  For more information, see the Troubleshooting and Limitations page in the .NET Add-in section of the Unified Functional Testing Add-ins Guide.
