Variable or Test parameter using "If object" in Keyword test

Hi to everyone,

I have to verify the properties "Exists" and "Enabled" for various tabs and pages. To do it I wanted to use a keyword test, in order to run it every time I have to do the verification, specifying only the object. I thought that the "If object" was the better choice but I can't use a variable or a test parameter in it. I tried using the "if... else" function but I wasn't able to create a correct test.

Can anyone please help me?

Thanks in advance to everyone

    Here's a JavaScript example, which captures the property values contentText, Text and Enabled of Aliases.panelTable.

    Objects.Save(Aliases.panelTable, "config_table", "contentText Text Enabled", "", true);

    It then checks Aliases.panelTable with the property values stored in Stores.

  • Hi rraghvani, thank you for the response but the situation is slightly different. I have to do this test like 100 times and every time the object is different. The objects are, obviously, already mapped. I wanted to have a keyword test that I can recall inserting only the object that I need to test.

    Thank you

      Just curious, why do you have to do the test 100 times? Is your test data dynamically  or UI changing?

      The other approach is to have the objects defined in a spreadsheet, read the values, and pass this into your keyword test.

        I have to validate a lot of pages of a web app, containing a lot of buttons. This is the reason why I'm trying to create an unique function that can be reused easily. How can I define objects in a spreadsheet?
