Checkproperty method in QTP:

Checkproperty method in QTP:
Check property in qtpAutomation tool itself does not find and report new bug(s) efficiently.It requires a skill of automation tester to let tool perform the operation in an efficient manner.We generally verify that application performs as expected;and if not,then report warning or info or error.Power of automation is unleashed only when we understand the thin line(hypothetical) that is between manual test and automation tool(s).I call this line as Auto-Manual bridge.I work out there.

Rolling back to topic again: There are different methods and properties available for checking/verifying.Exist,checkproperty, getROProperty etc.Let’s discuss Checkproperty method.We often come across a situation to verify the status of page load, test entered on the text box and similar scenarios.Checkproperty methods is very handy to solve the above problems easily.


Syntax:object.CheckProperty (PropertyName, PropertyValue, [TimeOut])

Example 1.Check the status of page.

>Browser("micclass:=Browser").Page("micclass:=Page").Object.CheckProperty ("status","done",3000)

Example 1.Verify the text Automationlab09 has been entered on the name textbox.

>Browser(“micclass:=Browser”).Page(“micclass:=Page”).WebEdit(“name of text box”).Set “Automationlab09”
sCheck=Browser(“micclass:=Browser”).Page(“micclass:=Page”).WebEdit(“Name”).CheckProperty (“value”, “Automationlab09”)

Here (in example 1), Quick test verifies whether the status on the status bar of browser is displayed as “done” or not. It waits till the timeout period ie. 3 seconds(in milliseconds),If it is unable to verify the status within 3 seconds then it’ll use the default time period specified in test settings.If verification is successful within time period it’ll return a boolean value TRUE and report test status as “PASSED” on test results else it’ll return boolean value FALSE and report the test status as “FAILED” on test results viewer.
This is an alternative way of using checkpoint in descriptive programming.

    what if we have to check more than one property of an object using CheckProperty?

    Would it be like:




    • Atul,
      CheckProperty holds only two mandatory and one optional arguments.
      object.CheckProperty (PropertyName, PropertyValue, [TimeOut])
      Better you can try with GetTOProperties ,it brings in more details about the object.

      let me know if you need more help on this.


    • See if it helps:

      Set LinkObj= Browser(“Google”).Page(“Google”).WebElement(“Google Search”)

      Set PropertyCollection = LinkObj.GetTOProperties

      For i = 0 To PropertyCollection.Count – 1
      Print PropertyCollection(i).Name
      Print PropertyCollection(i).Value


      Set PropertyCollection =Nothing

      Set LinkObj=Nothing

    In below code, QTP will throw an error as Expected Statement

    sCheck=Browser(“micclass:=Browser”).Page(“micclass:=Page”).WebEdit(“Name”).CheckProperty “value”, “Automationlab09”

    To Resolve this error, CheckProperty parameters needs to be enclosed in paranthesis as follows:

    sCheck=Browser(“micclass:=Browser”).Page(“micclass:=Page”).WebEdit(“Name”).CheckProperty (“value”, “Automationlab09”)

    Is there any difference between checkproperty and waitproperty?



  4. Nitin,
    Chekproperty:If the expected and actual values do not match, an error is reported and the test or component status is changed to failed.
    whenever you do not want to fail the test if the expected and actual values do not match, use the WaitProperty method.
    Let me know if you need more details.
