    Descriptive Programming


    Can I use variables with Descriptive Programming that are "Strings" or Numeric?

    My code (which returns null for the Set TableObj


    [VBA]For Gr = 1 to 13 'Loop thru GroupNames in Action1 file
    If DataTable.GetSheet("Action1").GetParameter("Execute").ValueByRow(Gr) = 1 then
    GroupName = DataTable.GetSheet("Action1").GetParameter("GroupName").ValueByRow(Gr)
    Browser("Wisdom").Page("WisdomLogin").Frame("parent").Link(GroupName).Click NumGr = Gr*2+3
    'Find table to extract data from
    Set TableObj = Browser("Wisdom").Page("WisdomLogin").Frame("parent").WebTable("Document Type.*", "name:=GroupName", "Index:=NumGr")
    Next[/vba]

    thx for any ideas?

    You need to explain what you mean by that first sentence.

    Descriptive programming is used when we want to perform an operation on an object that is not present in the object repository. There can be various valid reason to do so. We will discuss them later in this article.

    How to write Descriptive Programming?

    There are two ways in which descriptive programming can be used

    1. By giving the description in form of the string arguments.
    2. By creating properties collection object for the description.

    When using programmatic descriptions from a specific point within a test object hierarchy, you must continue to use programmatic descriptions
    from that point onward within the same statement. If you specify a test object by its object repository name after other objects in the hierarchy have
    been described using programmatic descriptions, QuickTest cannot identify the object.

    For example, you can use Browser(Desc1).Page(Desc1).Link(desc3), since it uses programmatic descriptions throughout the entire test object hierarchy.
    You can also use Browser("Index").Page(Desc1).Link(desc3), since it uses programmatic descriptions from a certain point in the description (starting
    from the Page object description).

    However, you cannot use Browser(Desc1).Page(Desc1).Link("Example1"), since it uses programmatic descriptions for the Browser and Page objects but
    then attempts to use an object repository name for the Link test object (QuickTest tries to locate the Link object based on its name, but cannot
    locate it in the repository because the parent objects were specified using programmatic descriptions).

    Is this VBA? It's just that I've never seen the synax or the objects before (limited experience) and didn't recoginize it

    [VBA]
    For Gr = 1 To 13 'Loop thru GroupNames in Action1 file If DataTable.GetSheet("Action1").GetParameter("Execute").ValueByRow(Gr) = 1 Then GroupName = DataTable.GetSheet("Action1").GetParameter("GroupName").ValueByRow(Gr) Browser("Wisdom").Page("WisdomLogin").Frame("parent").Link(GroupName).Click NumGr = Gr*2+3 'Find table to extract data from Set TableObj = Browser("Wisdom").Page("WisdomLogin").Frame("parent").WebTable("Document Type.*", "name:=GroupName", "Index:=NumGr") Next
    [/VBA]
