How do I simplify name mapping without having to use Extended Search? I remember a check box option.
I remember that there was a check box option buried somewhere deep within the bowels of TestComplete name mapping options that, when checked, would simplify the object paths both in the Object Browser and in the Name Mapping dialog. When the option was turned on it would change the object path to a test object from something like this
effectively removing objects that were not visible like the 'gridMain' and 'Grid' objects above.
Well, that is still using Extended find... but it's part of the automatic process. Under Tools -> Options -> Engines -> Name Mapping, there's an option "use extended find when possible". It won't update existing structure and it only applies to Web applications.
And it doesn't necessarily affect the Object browser, just how items are added to Name Mapping.
