What is a View
View refers to the visual representation of a UI Context. It captures the essence of the application interaction available in a web-based test application. To capture a new view in ACCELQ you will need to use 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, consider the travel site home page. Flights and Hotel tabs become two different views for the same home page.
How does ACCELQ use Views
- Views provide offline access to the application interface.
- Views capture DOM information, which is useful in building element ID criterion.
- Views allow interaction with the UI elements for Action logic development.
- Views provide rich support for self-healing at runtime, in case element description has changed.
