Click Method

Description

Clicks the object.

Syntax

object.Click [x], [y], [BUTTON]

Arguments

Parameter Description
x Optional. An integer value.
The x-coordinate of the click. The specified coordinates are relative to the upper left corner of the object. The default value is the center of the object.
Default value = 0
y Optional. An integer value.
The y-coordinate of the click. The specified coordinates are relative to the upper left corner of the object. The default value is the center of the object.


Tip: You can enter micNoCoordinate (-9999) for the X and Y argument values if you want to enter a value for the button argument without specifying x- and y- coordinates for the click. micNoCoordinate indicates the center of the object.


Default value = 0
BUTTON Optional. A predefined constant or number.
The mouse button used to click the object. UFT records clicks with the right mouse button only if the Web-based objects and UFT are both configured correctly. For more information, see the Web section of the Unified Functional Testing Add-ins Guide.

Drag Method

Description

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

Syntax

object.Drag [x], [y], [BUTTON], [Modifier]

Arguments

Parameter Description
x Optional. An integer value.
The x-coordinate within the source object. 

Default = micNoCoordinate (center of the source object)


Default value = 0
y Optional. An integer value.
The y-coordinate within the source object.

Default = micNoCoordinate (center of the source object)


Default value = 0
BUTTON Optional. A predefined constant or number.
The mouse button used to drag the object. (Releasing the button performs the Drop operation.)

Default = micLeftBtn (0)


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 always 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 > Advanced node). 

 

Notes for Scenario A:

--Recording session. You cannot record cross-object or cross-frame types of drag and drop operations (operations in which you try to drop an object on another object or in another frame). You can, however, insert these types of Drop steps manually. Note that it may be helpful 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. 

--Run session. If the application being tested supports scrolling, then UFT supports scrolling when the Drag and Drop test objects are both located in the same frame. UFT drags the Drag object to 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 of 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 the x-coordinate is relative to the upper left corner in the source location prior to being dragged.

Default = micNoCoordinate (center of the target object)


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

Default = micNoCoordinate (center of the target object)


Default value = 0

Return Type

None
