Highlighting an Object Map Item in the Test Application

After you add or record an object map item, you can click Highlight 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.

  1. In the Package Explorer, click on the Object Maps folder of the project in which the object map that you want to change is located.
  2. 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 Open.
    The object map displays a hierarchy of the object map items and the locator associated with each item.
  3. 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.
  4. Click Highlight. The 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 OK. Silk4J opens the test application and displays a green box around the control that the object map item represents.
