Object Checkpoint Wizard - Select Object Page

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on May 16, 2024
Object checkpoints are deprecated. We do not recommend using them. Use property checkpoints instead.

On the first page of the Object Checkpoint wizard, you can specify the window, control or object whose data you want to verify.

Note for mobile testing: To verify data on an object in a mobile application, you can specify the object by selecting it on the Mobile Screen. Make sure that the Mobile Screen window is not hidden when you call the checkpoint wizard. Also note that the mobile application under test and the mobile device where the application is running must be prepared for testing in order for TestComplete to be able to access the application objects.

You can specify the object in one of the following ways:

Tips for selecting objects:

  • Using the second approach may be more convenient if you need to manipulate the application before selecting an object. For example, you can open and point to popup windows, tooltips, and other objects that are hidden when being inactive.

  • To select a non-onscreen object, such as a process, enter the object name manually.

  • Instead of selecting the object, you can copy its name from the Object Browser, Object Spy, keyword test, or script code beforehand and paste it into the Object box.

  • Despite the way you specify the object name, you can change or correct it directly in the Object box.

If the Map object names automatically option is selected, TestComplete automatically adds the specified object to the Name Mapping repository (if it is not there already). Your tests will take the object alias from the repository.

To make sure you have selected the correct object, click Highlight. TestComplete will highlight the appropriate object on the desktop screen or in the Mobile Screen window.

To proceed with the checkpoint creation, click Next.
