Descriptive Programming
Descriptive Programming
3
Descriptive Programming is a method of performing operation on
the object which is not there in Object Repository. In this process
object properties will be used in script.
When to use Descriptive Programming
4
1. If the application is having Dynamic Objects
OR:- Difficult to handle Dynamic Objects using Object Repository

2. When we have more objects to perform operations
OR:- The performance will decrease if object repository is having huge number of
objects.

3. If the application is having objects that are adding in the Run Time
OR:- We cant add objects to Object Repository in run time.

4. If we need to start Automation before Build Release
OR:- There is no application to create Object Repository.

5. If Application is having similar type of objects or similar name objects
OR:- Object Repository will create multiple objects with same description
unnecessarily.

6. Big Team Size
OR:- Shared Object Repository is not changeable by multiple persons at a time.
Maintenance becomes harder if all the team members have created their own
object repositories.
Advantages of Descriptive Programming
5
1. Version Free
DP:- Script can be executed in any version of QTP without any changes.

2. Code Portability
DP:- Just code is enough run script. We can copy and paste in other
scripts for any other required requirement.

3. Reusing of Properties
DP:- We can assign properties to a global variable and reuse it for same
type of objects.

4. Plug & Play
DP:- Any time scripts will be in ready to run state. No need to worry
about any other settings or files.

5. Just Maintenance of variables
DP:- We can store the object properties in the form of variables in a txt /
vbs file which will be placed in central location. In this case we just need
to maintain that file.
Types in Descriptive Programming
6
Static
You list the set of properties and values that describe the object directly in a VBScript
statement.
Browser("micclass:=Browser").Page("micclass:=page").Link("name:=Login").Click

Dynamic
You add a collection of properties and values to a Description object, and then enter
the Description object name in the statement.

Set oBrowser = Description.create
oBrowser (micclass).value=Browser
oBrowser (name).value= Google

Set oPage = Description.create
oPage (micclass).value=Page
oPage (name).value= Google
Set oLink = Description.create

oLink (name).value= Login
oLink (index).value= 1

Browser(oBrowser).Page(oPage).Link(oLink).click
