Setting UI Object Properties
Using Interaction Objects to Guide the Application Mapper through the AUT
Add all of the components required for the interaction to the Interaction Object
view. After you add all of the components, you can select interaction methods for
those that require a specific action to become available, and select styles and specify
required string cases for those that require specific text as input.
Copying and Pasting Interaction Object Components
If you want more than one instance of the same component in an interaction object,
you can place a copy of the original component at another position in the
To copy a component and paste it at another position in the interaction object:
, and then click the component that you want to copy.
2. Drag the component to another position in the interaction object.
TestFactory places a copy of the original component in the new position.
Setting the Properties for a UI Object Component
Like the UI object on which it is based, a UI object component has properties that
determine how TestFactory exercises the control in the AUT during mapping and
testing. These properties are parallel to the UI object properties displayed in the
Properties view for a UI object.
Setting an Interaction Method for a Component
The interaction method that you specify for an interaction object component
determines the action or style that TestFactory uses to exercise the corresponding
control in the AUT.
To specify an action method for a component:
In the Interaction Object view, double-click the Interaction Method field for
the component, and then click the appropriate interaction method.
If you select an action method for an input-type of component to which you have
assigned a style, the selected interaction method overrides the style.
