What is a TypeInfo.dat file in Test Complete

I have a NameMapping/TypeInfo.dat under NameMapping when I try to check in the code

Re: What is a TypeInfo.dat file in Test Complete

Hi @testbuilder , @mboyce 

The TypeInfo file contains info on properties and methods of objects added to NameMapping. What is stored there in determined by the following setting - Name Mapping > Options > Stop object data

 

This is needed so that when you are writing a script and the mapped object you are working with is missing from the system, Code Completion will still show available methods and properties for this object.

 

I've also made a request for our Documentation team to add this info to TestComplete documentation.

No I was not able to find an answer,

 

but we had merge conflicts on that file->We tried to auto merge it which was not an available option->so we took the latest version and that resulted in loosing name mappings for certain test cases
