    If it is that only the object location is changing then adding the object to OR and then scripting will be enough. But if the object property is changing then it might be a problem

    Re: Tool is not identifying location changing object

    Hey.. i have a similar problem,
    I have to automate a test case where i have to Check some data in a table on a web page..
    The problem is i am identifying the table based on location only,and storing it in GUI map.
    for eg : the description of any table will be like
    {
    class: object,
    MSW_class: html_table,
    location: 18
    }
    ..
    Is there any method where i can make the object location independent??
    For example, can i add ID of the table (which will be unique in the web page) to this description somehow and avoid identifying the table by its location alone>>>??
    It will of a great help to me since the location keeps changing..!!

    Hi,
    If object location is keeps changing then you have to
    Remove x,y coordinates from object repository.
    Then run, it will work..

    Re: Tool is not identifying location changing object

    Hey..
    Thanks for the help..!
    I am very new to automation and i really dont know about QTP, object repository etc.I better learn and get back.

    Perhaps i should reframe my question this way.
    What i wanted to know was if i can somehow make the script identify the table even when the location changes,
    for eg:
    (Obj_exists(tableLogicalName)==E_OK)
    gives false when location changes,

    when i learn the table from UI,to copy it to the GUI map,i get the description of the table as
    {
    class: object,
    MSW_class: html_table,
    location: 6
    } or similar, only the location of the table changes for each table in the UI.

    i thought if i can perhaps delete the location from the description and add id of the table or something which is unique for a table,even if the location changes,
    my script will identify the table, and
    (Obj_exists(tableLogicalName)==E_OK) would return me true.,,

    Can i edit the GUI map somehow to make the table independent of location, but dependent on ID of the table??

    Thanks...!
