Window Text and Class Name Match Rules
As you interrogate the application, OpenSpan matches the name of the window form (Window Text) and detects the platform on which the application was built (.NET, Windows, etc.) and applies a default match rule. The default match rules applied depend on the base technology as follows:
Match Rules For Application Form Window
Window Text Match Rule & .NET Control Name Match Rule
Windows NT or 2000
Window Text Match Rule & Window Class Name Match Rule
(e.g., Clarify.exe version 5.1)
Window Text Match Rule & MFC Window Class Name Match Rule
As you interrogate the objects within the application, OpenSpan uses the match rules best suited to uniquely identify the objects.
Default Match Rules
There are seven (7) basic, default match rules:
.NET Window Class Match Rule (Used for .NET Applications only) MFC Window Class Name Match Rule (Used for MFC Applications only) Window Class Name Match Rule .NET Control Name Match Rule (Used for .NET Applications only)
OpenSpan uses one or more of the above match rules to uniquely match the target.
