Known Issues - Standard Windows

  • When recording on WinMenu objects, the Active Screen is not captured.

  • You cannot insert a checkpoint on a WinMenu object.

    Workaround: Use the CheckProperty and CheckItemProperty methods to check specific property and item property values.

  • If you record using Windows logo key shortcuts, the recording may be inaccurate.

    Workaround: Use the Start menu instead of the Windows logo key when recording.

  • Changing the style of a WinCalendar (from single selection to multi-selection, for example) will cause the run session to fail.

  • When using the pointing hand mechanism from the Object Spy to point to MFC static text or tab controls, UFT may fail to return the correct object.

    Workaround: Add the object to the object repository. To do this, point to the object's parent window, select the parent window object in the Object Selection dialog box, click OK, and perform one of the following in the Define Object Filter dialog box:

    • Select the All object types option to add all of the objects in the parent window to the object repository.
    • Select the Selected object types option, click the Select button, and then select the specific object type(s) you want to add to the object repository.

    After you add the object to the object repository, you can use the GetROProperty method to retrieve the run-time values of its properties. For example:

    width = Dialog("Login").Static("Agent Name:").GetROProperty("width")
    MsgBox width
  • Checkpoints are not supported for WinComboBox objects of style Simple ComboBox.

  • Windowless objects developed using an API other than the MSAA API are not identified.

  • The description properties of a windowless control must include the acc_name property. By default, this property is not available in the list properties when you add a new test object.

    Workaround: Add the acc_name property to the list of properties. To do this from the Define New Test Object Dialog Box, in the Test object details area, click the Add description properties button . In the Add Properties dialog box, click the Define new property button and add the acc_name property.
