How to create Properties file in TestComplete
I am looking for steps to create Property class and put all common web object xpaths(stable properties) inside this Properties file.
Something similar to selenium, wherein we keep all our common xpaths in property file and call them in our Test scripts.
Solved! Go to Solution.
TestComplete differs quite significantly both in architectural concept and in functioning from Selenium.
XPath is the last resort approach in TestComplete while (properly manually crafted in-advance) NameMapping with Aliases accompanied with considered use of .FindNNN() methods is a recommended approach. (And it is much more flexible and maintainable.)

Agreed. Creating a Properties file is trying to replicate Selenium in TestComplete... which is re-inventing the wheel. Find the articles on nameMapping and build your repository that way.

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.
