ACCELQ supports automated testing against a Terminal Emulator screen and the fields on that screen. You define a TE element on which various commands can be exercised in Action logic. This article describes two approaches to define the selector for a TE Element. Selector is a specification of attributes to uniquely identify an element on a screen.
Creating TE Element
In ACCELQ, elements are stored in an Element Repository. Every Context centrally manages its own Element Repository. All the Actions in the Context have access to these elements.
You can access the Element Repository either from the Context screen or from the Action screen.
Click on "New TE Element" to create a new TE Element.
Position based TE Selector
This approach allows you to create a TE element based on its screen position (row number and column number)
Neighborhood-based TE Selector
This approach allows you to define an Element based on the leading/trailing text. For example, you want to define a field which is preceded by the text, "User Name"
Note: You must specify at least one of Leading or Trailing text. Both cannot be blank.
Note: This selector strategy is available only for HLL-based mainframe clients.
