Object Repository

All text fields, buttons, checkboxes, etc. are referred as objects in UFT. UFT maps the Graphical User Interface (GUI) objects to its standard object class. For example, for a web application, edit field is mapped to WebEdit class, check box is mapped to WebCheckbox class and so on.

UFT stores the definition of the GUI objects in Object Repository (OR). This definition consists of object properties such as name, class, and html id, visual relation identifiers, and ordinal identifiers.
