Renewing a name in associated script(s)

You can change a vague test object name to a more meaningful name. Functional Test updates the name in associated scripts from the test object map.

Before you begin

For example, a test object named Button represents a Print Preview button on a toolbar. You can change the name of the test object to Preview Button, which is more precise.

  1. Open the test object map and select the test object.

  2. Click Test Object > Renew Name in Associated Script(s) in the Test Object Map menu,

  3. In the Renew the name of map node name with field, enter the script test object name used in the associated scripts.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Select the scripts that contains the name you want to update.

  6. Click Finish.
