QA Wizard Pro cannot locate a window or control if the expected value for a property used as search criteria does not match the value in the application. In some cases, you may need to change the expected value in the application repository, but you may not know the new value in the application.
You can record a test script and use checkpoints as a shortcut to view run-time property values.
- Record a new script.
- Click Checkpoint on the Recording toolbar.
- Click the window or control you want to view properties for. The Add Statement dialog box opens.
- Find the property value in the Current Value column.
Note: You can select the property in the list and copy the value in the Expected Value field so you can paste it as the new value in the application repository.
- Click Cancel to close the Add Statement dialog box.
- Click Cancel on the Recording toolbar to cancel recording.
- Right-click the window or control in the application repository and choose Properties.
- Select the old value in the Expected Value column and enter or paste the new value.
- Click OK to save the changes. The new value is used as the expected value the next time the script runs.
