Scanned Components

Scanned components are used to interact with a particular form or page in an application.

Scanning a page will automatically generate a new scanned component that contains the information necessary to interact with that page. This includes:

  • programmatic identifiers for each control on the page
  • which actions are possible for each control
  • the locations of each control in a screenshot of the page

When using a scanned component in a test, one of the supported actions is chosen and then data for some or all control elements is provided. Actions can be of the type Get, Set, Verify or Click.

If an application page for which a scanned component is used changes, the component can be rescanned, which automatically updates all tests that use the scanned component, thereby making maintenance as efficient as possible.
