Locating an Object Map Item in the Test Application
After you add or record an object map item, you can click
Locate to highlight the item in the test application. You might want to highlight an item to confirm that it's the item that you
want to modify in the object map.
View > Asset Browser or select
Get Started > Asset Browser in the
Asset Types list, select
Any existing object maps for the selected project display in the right pane.
Tip: If you do not see the object map that you want to edit, ensure that the correct project is selected in the
Active Project list.
Choose one of the following:
Double-click the object map that you want to use.
Right-click the object map that you want to use and choose
The object map displays a hierarchy of the object map items and the locator associated with each item.
Note: If another user is currently editing the object map that you select, a message box notifies you and names the user who currently
has the object map locked.
By default, the object map is read only. Clicking
Edit gives you read/write access and ensures that no other users can edit the entries while you are modifying them. You can also
F2 to edit the currently selected field in the object map.
Edit button changes to
Revert. If you want to undo any changes that you make during this session, click
In the object map hierarchy, select the object map item that you want to highlight in the test application.
Note: Ensure that only one instance of the test application is running. Running multiple instances of the test application will
cause an error because multiple objects will match the locator.
Select Application dialog box might open if the test application has not been associated with the object map. If this happens, select the application
that you want to test and then click
If you select the incorrect application in the
Select Application dialog box, click
Change Application and Locate from the
Locate submenu. The
Select Application dialog box opens and you can select the correct test application.
Silk Test Workbench opens the test application and displays a green box around the control that the object map item represents.
