Update Name Mapping Wizard - Select Object Page

Applies to TestComplete 15.42, last modified on August 01, 2022

TestComplete shows this page of the Update Name Mapping wizard if TestComplete cannot identify a mapped object in your tested application. On this page, you can select the object to which the mapped object should refer in your application under test.

Update Name Mapping Wizard - Select Object Page

You can select the application object in one of the following ways:

Note for mobile testing: To update the identification information of an object in a mobile application, select the object on the Mobile Screen (make sure the Mobile Screen window is not hidden before selecting the object). Also note that the 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’s objects.

TestComplete will display an image of the selected object in the Preview area. To highlight the selected object on the screen, click Highlight.

The selected object must belong to the same parent object as the original mapped object. In other words, it must be either a direct or nested child object (grandchild, great-grandchild and so on) of the parent mapped object. In the latter case, TestComplete will turn on the Extended Find setting in the object’s mapping criteria.

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.

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

Click Next to open the next page of the wizard where you can update identification properties for the selected object.

Click Finish to update the identification properties automatically.

If the wizard is called during the test run, after updating the problematic mapped object, TestComplete will rerun the test operations interacting with the object and will continue the test run.

To ignore the object identification problem, click Cancel. If the wizard is called during the test run, TestComplete will resume the test run from the following operation.
