Overwrite Namemapping Configuration in Runtime

Is it possible to overwrite a mapped objects className within a script during runtime?


NameMapping.bla.element.this.className ="newClassName"


Sadly this doesnt work, it only overwrites the classname in the HTML document.


Is it possible to overwrite the className within the mapped objects NameMapping tree? 


I know there is a workaround with a project variable, which you can set during runtime and use it as namemapping, but I am curious if its possible to overwrite the configuration during runtime

No, you cannot do that.  As you noted, you can use a project variable, but there is no way to alter the values of the properties used for object identification otherwise.

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.
