Using Desktop Keywords - Opkey Classic

Opkey's Desktop keywords are commands to facilitate the automation of desktop application testing scenarios. 


Let's understand this with an example of using the Win_ClearEditField keyword.

Win_ClearEditField

This keyword clears the value of the specified Edit field. It takes the Edit field Object as an Object Input argument. It does not take any Data Input Arguments.


For example, if you want to clear the value in the selected edit field, you can use the following steps:- 

 

1. Add a new step in your test case by clicking the icon on the panel as depicted in the image below. Search for this keyword and click on the search result to add it to the new test step. 




Now add the input parameters in the input field by clicking the arrow.



These are filled based on keyword requirements in the test case, as seen in the image shown
