  • 1.  Update Script Helper

    I'm looking at the RFT Script drop down menu and the Update Script Helper option.
    The Script drop down menu from the RFT Eclipse main tool bar
    Can anyone tell me what it is used for?  I know what the scriptHelper is but I can't find anything in the documentation that tells me how this feature works or why I should select and run it.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    from the documentation it's used to regenerate the helper class manually

    References:

    https://help.blueproddoc.com/rationaltest/rationalfunctionaltester/10.5.0/docs/topics/AddingObjectDescriptions.html

    "Rational® Functional Tester places the description in the helper class. The description is not inserted until the helper class file is regenerated, which occurs when you record, playback, or update recognition properties. To regenerate the helper class file manually, in the Rational® Functional Tester menu click Script > Update Script Helper."

    https://help.blueproddoc.com/rationaltest/rationalfunctionaltester/10.5.0/docs/topics/DescriptionSelectedNode.html

    "You use the Set Description Property for Selected Test Object dialog box to add descriptive text to the Administrative property set tab for the object. Rational® Functional Tester displays the description when you place the cursor over the object name in a script.
    Note: Rational® Functional Tester places the description in the helper class. The description is not inserted until the helper class file is regenerated, which occurs automatically when you record, playback, or update recognition properties. To manually regenerate the helper class file, in the Rational® Functional Tester menu, click Script > Update Script Helper."

    Let us know if you need more information

    Thank you
