Use this method to pause the script execution until the specified window or control of a Java application, that was created with SWT classes, becomes available to TestComplete. The method returns a program object that provides a scripting interface to the specified window or control. The resulting object contains both methods and properties defined in application code as well as methods, properties and actions provided by TestComplete.
TestObj.WaitSWTObject(ClassName, AccName, Timeout)
TestObj.WaitSWTObject(ClassName, AccName, Index, Timeout)
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 parameters:
The window’s class name is specified by the application's code (not the operating system’s class name). Note that you should specify the short class name, for instance,
Shell, rather than
org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Shell. You can use wildcards (* and ?) in this parameter.
Accessible window caption. You can use wildcards (* and ?) in this parameter.
Index of the window among other windows belonging to the same parent object (WindowObj).
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 1, the second - 2 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.
The number of milliseconds to wait until the specified object becomes available. If Timeout is 0, the method returns immediately. If Timeout is -1, the wait time is infinite.
Note that Timeout value is not strict and if the tested application is busy, TestComplete could wait for the object for a longer period of time than it is specified by the parameter. The following can cause this:
A call to any
WaitXXXObject method causes the object tree to refresh. To update object data, TestComplete may call some of object’s native methods that are accessible only from the application’s thread. When the thread is busy, TestComplete tries to call those methods during some pre-defined time (one second) thus delaying the refresh. There could be several attempts to get the object’s data which could result in a noticeable difference from the Timeout value.
WaitSWTObject method returns an object that provides a scripting interface to an object located in a Java SWT application. If TestComplete cannot access the specified object (for example, this object does not exist), the method will return an empty stub object. To determine whether
WaitSWTObject 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
WaitSWTObject 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 NativeJavaObject namespace.
