"Use Insert On Screen Action" Not Available in Visualizer

Hi Everyone,

 

Just watched Test Complete 101.  In the video, Test Complete caches all the objects.  This allows you to open an image in Visualizer and add additional test steps later.  I created my first successful desktop app test, but when I open the images in Visualizer I don't have the functionality shown in the video. In the video, moving the cursor over the image caused other textboxes, etc. to be selected.  Then you could right-click and choose "Insert On Screen Action."  This is not happening for me.  What might I be overlooking?  Is there a setting that I need to turn on to get this funtionality to work?  

 

Thanks in advance!

Under Tools -> Current Project Properties -> Visualizer first of all, you have the option to capture images during playback and recording.  Obviously you have one of those turned on.  under that, there's an additional option called "Capture tested object properties".  That needs to be checked in order for the feature you're using to work.  (see https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/testing-with/visualizer/creating-test-commands-from....)

 

Hope this helps.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
