Use this method to obtain a scripting interface to the specified object of a Visual Basic 6.0 application (these applications are always “open” to TestComplete). The resulting object contains both VB and TestComplete methods, properties, events and actions.
|TestObj||A variable, parameter or expression that specifies a reference to one of the objects listed in the Applies To section|
The method is applied to the following objects:
To view this method in the Object Browser panel and in other panels and dialogs, activate the Advanced view mode.
The method has the following parameter:
The name of the desired object. This can be the object’s name as it is specified in the tested application’s source code (the string that is returned by the object’s “native”
Name property) or the name generated by TestComplete (when the “native”
Name property is empty). TestComplete generates the name using the object’s class name and an index. To learn the generated name, explore your application in the Object Browser.
VBObject method returns an object that provides a scripting interface to an object located in a Visual Basic 6.0 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
VBObject 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
VBObject was not successful.
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 and 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 NativeVBObject namespace.
