Applies to TestComplete 14.30, last modified on November 21, 2019

Description

Declaration

TestObj.JavaFXObject(Name)

TestObj A variable, parameter or expression that specifies a reference to one of the objects listed in the Applies To section
Name [in]    Required    String    
Result Object

TestObj.JavaFXObject(ClassNameText)

TestObj A variable, parameter or expression that specifies a reference to one of the objects listed in the Applies To section
ClassName [in]    Required    String    
Text [in]    Required    String    
Result Object

TestObj.JavaFXObject(ClassNameTextIndex)

TestObj A variable, parameter or expression that specifies a reference to one of the objects listed in the Applies To section
ClassName [in]    Required    String    
Text [in]    Required    String    
Index [in]    Required    Integer    
Result Object

Applies To

The method is applied to the following objects:

View Mode

To view this method in the Object Browser panel and in other panels and dialogs, activate the Advanced view mode.

Parameters

The method has the following parameters:

Name

The name of the desired object as it is specified in the tested application’s source code (the string that is returned by the JavaFXObjectName property).

ClassName

The window’s class name as it is specified by the JavaClassName property. You can use wildcards (* and ?) in this parameter.

Text

The window’s caption as it is specified by the JavaFXObjectText property. You can use wildcards (* and ?) in this parameter.

Index

The window’s index as it is specified by the JavaFXObjectIndex property.

The Index parameter is used only if an object contains two or more child objects that have the same class name and caption. It is used to distinguish these objects from each other. The first found object has an index of 0, the second -  1 and so on.

If there is only one child object with the specified class name and caption, index should not be specified. To decide whether the index should be used, explore your application in the Object Browser panel and use the naming format that is used by the panel.

Result Value

The JavaFXObject method returns an object that provides access to an object located in a JavaFX application. If TestComplete cannot access the specified object (for example, this object does not exist), the method will return an empty stub object and post an error message to the test log. To determine whether JavaFXObject returns a valid object, use the Exists property of the resultant object. If this property returns False, then the returned object is a stub object and the call to JavaFXObject was not successful.

Remarks

The returned object contains both methods and properties defined in the application code as well as methods, properties and actions provided by TestComplete. The returned object may hold two or more methods or properties having the same name. When you call such a method or property, a naming conflict will occur. To avoid it and to specify which method or property is to be called, use the NativeJavaFXObject namespace.

The JavaFXObject method is available only if the Java Application Support and JavaFX Application Support plugin are installed. Otherwise, the method is absent in the method list of the TestObj object.
If the plugin are installed, you cannot use the Window method to address windows of your JavaFX application, you should use the JavaFXObject instead.

To obtain the class name, text and index used by the second or third implementation of the JavaFXObject method, use the JavaClassName, JavaFXObjectText and JavaFXObjectIndex properties.
