JavaClassName Property

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on May 16, 2024


The JavaClassName property returns the short class name of an object of a Java application that was created with AWT, Swing, SWT or WFC libraries. Examples of short class names are JMenuBar or JButton.

If the object is an array, JavaClassName contains the brackets at the end of the returned string, for instance, if JavaAppObject is an array of components, the property will return Component[]. The number of brackets correspond to the array dimensions. For instance, if JavaAppObject is an array that has three dimensions, the property will contain three brackets at the end: Component[][][].

If the object is an array of simple types such as integer, string or boolean, the JavaClassName will return the type name and brackets, for instance, int[][].

To address objects of AWT, Swing and SWT Java applications, use the AWTObject, SwingObject or SWTObject methods. These methods can address an object by its name, or by the class name, accessible name and index. The JavaClassName property value is equal to the first parameter (class name) used by these methods.
