object model reference
Object Model Reference
  • An object model is a structural representation of software objects (classes) that comprise the implementation of a system or application
  • An object model defines a set of classes and interfaces, together with their properties, methods and events, and their relationships
what is quick test automation object model
What is Quick test automation object model?
  • It is a model to represent a real time objects which are there in the application.
  • We can use the objects, its methods and properties to customize our testing needs
  • In Esupport, to access the user name box the hierarchy is

Browser(“satyam virtual universe”).page(“satyam virtual unirverse”).webedit(txtusername)

web objects
Web Objects
  • Browser- The Web browser. The name of the Browser test object is the same as the first recorded Page object
  • Page - An HTML page
  • Webedit - An edit box, usually contained inside a form
  • Webbutton - An HTML button.
  • Webcheckbox - A check box with an ON and OFF state.
  • WebTable - A table containing a variable number of rows and columns
some examples on web objects
Some examples on web objects
  • Login to the esupport and viewing the leave balance
  • Login to the esupport and opening the power on to view the current status
windows objects
Windows objects
  • Dialog – A Windows dialog box
  • Window – A standard window.
  • WinEdit – A Windows edit box.
  • WinCheckBox - A Windows check box
  • WinEdit - A Windows edit box
  • WinButton - A Windows button.
utility objects
Utility objects
  • QuickTest reserved objects can be used for testing and result reporting preferences during a run session.

description object
Description object

“Description” - Creates a new, empty description object in which you

can add collection of properties and values in order to specify the

description object in place of a test object name in a step.


set EditDesc = Description.Create()

EditDesc("Name").Value = "userName"

EditDesc("Index").Value = "0"

Browser("Welcome: Mercury").Page("Welcome: Mercury").WebEdit(EditDesc).Set "MyName”

crypt object
Crypt Object
  • Encrypts a string




x = "mercury"

msgbox Crypt.Encrypt(x)

dynamic objects
Dynamic objects
  • Programmatic descriptions enable us to create temporary versions of test objects to represent objects from our application.
  • We can perform operations on those objects without referring to the object repository.
  • For example, suppose an edit box was added to a form on your Web site. You could use a programmatic description to add a statement in a user-defined function that enters a value in the new edit box, so that QuickTest can identify the object even though you never recorded on the object or added it to the object repository
  • TestObject("PropertyName1:=PropertyValue1", "..." , "PropertyNameX:=PropertyValueX")
  • TestObject—the test object class.
  • PropertyName:=PropertyValue—the test object property and its value. Each property:=value pair should be separated by commas and quotation marks
  • Browser("Mercury Tours").Page("Mercury Tours").WebEdit("Name:=Author", "Index:=3").Set "Mark Twain”
  • Window("Text:=Myfile.txt - Notepad").Move 50, 50

Window("Text:=Myfile.txt -Notepad").WinEdit("AttachedText:=Find what:").Set "hello"

Window("Text:=Myfile.txt - Notepad").WinButton("Caption:=Find next").Click

file system objects
File system objects

The FileSystemObject (FSO) object model allows us to use the familiar object.method syntax with a rich set of properties, methods, and events to process folders and files.

  • Counting no of lines in a file
  • File existence check
  • Comparing text files
registeruserfunc utility
RegisterUserFunc utility
  • Enables us to add new methods to test objects or change the behavior of an existing test object method during a run session
  • When we use this statement, QuickTest uses our user-defined function as a method of a specified test object class for the remainder of a run session, or until we unregister the method.
  • RegisterUserFuncTOClass, MethodName, FunctionName, SetAsDefault
  • The following example uses the RegisterUserFunc method to create a new Copy method for the WinEdit test object that copies all the text in an edit box to the Windows Clipboard.
  • Sub Copy (edit)

       Edit.Click 3, 3

       Edit.SetSelection 0, Len(Edit.GetROProperty("text"))

       Edit.Type micCtrlDwn + "c" + micCtrlUp

End Sub

RegisterUserFunc "WinEdit", "Copy", "Copy"

' Now you can call the new method

Dialog("Login").WinEdit("Agent Name:").Copy

working with api functions
Working with API functions
  • Extern object – It enables us to declare calls to external procedures from an external dynamic-link library (DLL).
  • Declare Method - Declares references to external procedures in a dynamic-link library (DLL).
  • Once we use the Declare method for a method, we can use the Extern object to call the declared method
  • Extern.Declare(RetType, MethodName, LibName, Alias [, ArgType(s)])

'Declare FindWindow method

Extern.Declare micHwnd, "FindWindow", "user32.dll", "FindWindowA", micString, micString

'Declare SetWindowText method

Extern.Declare micLong, "SetWindowText", "user32.dll", "SetWindowTextA", micHwnd, micString

'Get HWND of the Notepad window

hwnd = Extern.FindWindow("Notepad", vbNullString)

if hwnd = 0 then

MsgBox "Notepad window not found"

end if

'Change the title of the notepad window

res = Extern.SetWindowText(hwnd, "kuku")

working with outlook express
Working with outlook express
  • QuickTest Professional does not have special support for the Outlook application, so there is no built-in method that will locate an e-mail and allow you to view the attachments.
  • However, Microsoft does have an Object Model for Outlook that can be used to automate many of the features.
  • You can refer to "Microsoft Outlook 2000 Object Model" for a complete listing of Outlook methods and properties that can be used within a QuickTest Professional (QTP) script.

working with xml object
Working with XML object

QuickTest provides several scripting methods that we can use with XML data. We can use these scripting methods to retrieve data and return new XML objects from existing XML data.


The object used to access and return XML objects.


Set Object = XMLUtil.CreateXML()

loading xml file
Loading XML file

Set XMLObj = XMLUtil.CreateXML()



Code for replacing the value in XML file using XML Object:

Set doc = XMLUtil.CreateXML()

doc.LoadFile "C:\Documents and Settings\ss21189\Desktop\mails.xml"

Set root = doc.GetRootElement()

Set children = root.ChildElements()

if children.Count() <> 0 then

Set firstChild = children.Item(1)

firstChildName = firstChild.ElementName()

Set sameNameChildren = children.AllItemsByName(firstChildName)

msg = "My first child name is " + firstChildName + " and I have " + FormatNumber(sameNameChildren.Count(),0) + " of them."

End If

msgbox msg

set firstChild=root.ChildElements().Item(2)


Set child2 = firstChild.ChildElements().Item(2)

Msgbox child2.Value()


firstChild.AddChildElementByName "Value", "replacement"

Dim fso, MyFile

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set MyFile = fso.OpenTextFile("C:\Documents and Settings\ss21189\Desktop\mails.xml")
