View refers to the visual representation of a UI Context. It captures the essence of application interactions available in a web based test application. You capture a new View with accelQ’s View Analyzer plugin.
A UI Context may have one or more Views associated with it, representing slight variations in the visual presentation of a given Context. For example, a Bank’s Login Page Context may offer Login functionality for Retail Customers and Small Business Customers. You may have slight variations in the login fields between the two types of login. These two variations become Views for the Login Page Context.
- Views allow interaction with the UI elements for Action logic development.
- Views provide offline access to the application interface.
- Views capture DOM information, which is useful in building element ID criterion.
- Views provide rich support for self-healing at runtime, in case element description has changed.
