Using Desktop Keywords - Opkey New UI

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.


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 selecting the pencil icon

Click on the arrow to proceed to the next window to edit object data of the step.

Test Objects are filled as per the keyword requirement used in the test case as shown in the image below.
