Find methond


Find methond

I am tring to use the find method to click on an object. My alias mapping is: Aliases.displayQt.UpgradeDialog.QtObject("QWidget", "", 2).QtObject("LocalNav::CenterButton", "", 1).QtObject("reject_button")


QtObject("reject_button") has a property of Name and a value of  QtObject("reject_button")


I am trying to do something like: 



However, this is not working and it's saying that the object doesn't exsist. How do I use this function?


I got it to work

Quite honestly, I would not use the "Name" property to find the object.  I'd use combination of "ObjectType" and "ObjectIdentifier" or perhaps other sets of properties.  The "Name" property is a construct of TestComplete's object tree.

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.
