Overview of Smart Identification Process of QTP
If QTP activates the Smart Identification mechanism during a run session, it follows the following process to identify the object:
Step - 1: QTP "forgets" the learned test object description and creates a new object candidate list containing the objects that match all of the properties defined in the Base Filter Properties list.
Step - 2: QTP filters out any object in the object candidate list that does not match the first property listed in the Optional Filter Properties list. The remaining objects become the new object candidate list.
Step - 3: QTP evaluates the new object candidate list:
# If the new object candidate list still has more than one object, QTP uses the new (smaller) object candidate list to repeat step 2 for the next optional filter property in the list.
# If the new object candidate list is empty, QTP ignores this optional filter property, returns
