Add Dynamic Identifier Pattern - Select Object From Screen Page

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on June 12, 2024

The Add Dynamic Identifier Pattern wizard helps you create patterns for handling dynamic object identifiers in web and hybrid mobile applications.

On this page, you can specify a web page object that has a dynamic identifier for which you want to create a match pattern. You can specify the web object in one of the following ways:

  • Drag the target to point to the object

    Drag the target glyph () to the desired object and drop it when the red frame appears around the object.

    See Selecting Objects: 'Drag the Target...' Mode.

  • Point and press a shortcut

    Click , and then move the mouse pointer to the desired object. When the red frame appears around the object, press the Select object shortcut, Shift+Ctrl+A. (The shortcut can be changed in the Global Shortcuts options.)

    See Selecting Objects: 'Point and Fix' Mode.

  • Enter the object name manually

    Enter the alias or unmapped name of the desired object into the Object box and press Enter.

TestComplete will display the identifier of the selected object below the Object text box. This identifier is the object’s id or name attribute, according to the Identification attribute project setting for web or hybrid mobile applications..

To make sure you have selected the correct object, click Highlight and TestComplete will highlight the appropriate object on the desktop screen.

After you have selected the object, click Next to proceed.
