Using the variables in properties of the Stored Object

Currently we can use variable only in the Property Checkpoints.

I propose to extend this feature to the Object Checkpoints, too.

    Does this work for you?  It doesn't come up in the wizard but you can edit the checkpoint after you create it and use a variable.

    Hi Marsha,

     

    That is not exactly what I mean. 

     

    I have a number of complex objects, which contain a lot of nodes and each node consists of several properties.

    Some of properties can have a different values in different tests. E.g. I have a page in application with some textbox. This textbox has a placeholder property. Depending on user type this property can be = "required" or "optional". And there are few similar elements on that page.

     

    Currently I need to design the separate object for each test (user type). But if I can assign a variable to the mentioned property value, I need only one object.

    We build strings to use variables as part of an object

     

    eval("Aliases.QAD_Client.ShellForm.MdiClient." & KeywordTests.MaintainProfile_AddAttributes.Parameters.MappedName &".zmainPanel.BrowseTabbedPageControl.AssociatedControl.zmainContainer.SplitterPanel_1.ztabManager."&KeywordTests.MaintainProfile_AddAttributes.Variables.ProfileDef & ".zmainContainer.SplitterPanel.BrowseControl.zsplitContainer.SplitterPanel_1.DTApplication.DTApplication_Fill_Panel")

     

    the MappedName and ProfileDef vary with the section being tested

     

    Would something like that help?

    Hi Marsha,

     

    I do not see how to use your approach while creating the Objects in the Stores, because I can't assign a code expression as a value of the property of the stored object. I only can use a constant values.
