Properties of screen property verification points

You can create screen property verification points to test the screen in your application. When you record the verification point, a baseline of the screen is created. Every time you play back the script, the screen is compared to check if any changes have occurred. This helps in identifying any mismatch in screen.

Table 1 shows the properties, descriptions, and default values of screen property verification points.


Table 1. Screen property verification points properties

Property Description Valid values Default value
.fieldCount Specifies the number of fields on the screen.    
accessibilityEnabled Enables the accessibility API in the terminal screen when set to true. true or false true
alignmentX Specifies the component position within BoxLayout. If border layout is specified as X_Axis, you can change the alignmentY to -1 for top or 1 for bottom. If the Y_Axis is specified, you can change the alignmentX to -1 for left or 1 for right.   0.5
alignmentY Specifies the component position within BoxLayout. If border layout is specified as Y_Axis, you can change the alignmentX to -1 for top or 1 for bottom. If the X_Axis is specified, you can change the alignmentY to -1 for left or 1 for right.   0.5
autoFontSize Automatically selects the best font size whenever the window is resized. True indicates that any calls to setFontSize() is ignored. true or false true
autoPack Automatically packs the subcomponents of the screen property verification point when set to true. true or false false
autoscrolls Specifies that when set to true, mouse-drag events are synthetically generated when the mouse is dragged outside of the component bounds and mouse motion has paused while the button continues to be held down. true or false false
background Specifies the background color. You can chose from basic, system, or specify the RGB colors to replace the default colors.   java.awt.Color[r=212,g=208,b=200]
background3DColour Specifies the background three-dimensional color. true or false true
backgroundSet Specifies whether the background color is explicitly set for the component. If false, the component inherits its background color from an ancestor. true or false true
blockCursor Displays the full height block cursor, or underscored cursor. If the window is currently in insert mode, the block or underscore cursor is not displayed until you exit insert mode. In insert mode, the window displays a half-height cursor.True causes the window to display a full height block cursor and false causes the window to display an underscored cursor. true or false false
