  2. In the Application Name field, select the application that contains the controls you want to test and click OK.

  3. In the Test Object Map toolbar, click the Test Object: Insert Object(s) button . Functional Tester opens the Insert a GUI Object into the Object Map dialog box.

  4. On the Select an Object page, click the Object Finder icon and drag it into the application over the object you want to add to the test object map. For other methods of selecting objects, see Select an Object.

  5. On the Select Object Options page , select one of the following options:

    • Just the selected object -- Select to include only the control you selected in the test object map.

    • Include the siblings of the selected object -- Select to include children of the immediate parent.

    • Include all available objects on this window -- Select to include in the test object map all the visible controls in the current window.
