Target Property Page - Automatic Configuration

   

 

All of the GUI Automation Actions use the "Target" property page to describe the window or control that the action targets.

 

Here is an example of an automatically configured Target Property Page:

 

GUIAutomation_TargetDesc

 

 

Auto-Configure

 

This is the recommended way to configure this property page. When you click on the "Click Here..." button, FinalBuilder is hidden and the following dialog pops up:

 

FindControlDialog

 

While you search, FinalBuilder will place a red highlight rectangle around the control which is currently under the mouse pointer.

 

Navigate to a point over the control that you want to choose for the action, and Control-Click to select it. All of the other fields on the property page will be populated with a description of the control. In most cases, this is all you need to create a reproducible description of the target control.

 

However, you can fine tune the selection by editing each field on the property page. This is described in the Manual Configuration topic.
