Add Dynamic Identifier Pattern Wizard

Applies to TestComplete 15.65, last modified on June 26, 2024

Web applications can generate dynamic identifiers for objects, for example, id5286, id4731 and so on. The Add Dynamic Identifier Pattern wizard helps you create patterns for detecting dynamic web identifiers. TestComplete can either ignore these identifiers (cross-platform and classic web tests) or extract and use their non-dynamic portion (classic web tests only). For more information, see:

To open the wizard, click Add on the Properties > Open Applications > Web Testing > Object Identification or Properties > Open Applications > Hybrid Mobile page of your project.

The wizard includes the following pages:

Add Dynamic Identifier Pattern Wizard - Select Option Page

On this page, you select how you want to specify the dynamic identifier you would like to handle.

Add Dynamic Identifier Pattern - Select Object From Screen Page
