How do you configure GUI map?
When WinRunner learns the
description of a GUI object, it does not learn all its properties. Instead, it
learns the minimum number of properties to provide a unique identification of
Many applications also contain
custom GUI objects. A custom object is any object not belonging to one of the
standard classes used by WinRunner. These objects are therefore assigned to the
generic object class. When WinRunner records an operation on a custom object,
it generates obj_mouse_ statements in the test script.
If a custom object is similar to a
standard object, you can map it to one of the standard classes. You can also
configure the properties WinRunner uses to identify a custom object during
Context Sensitive testing. The mapping and the configuration you set are valid
only for the current WinRunner session. To make the mapping and the
configuration permanent, you must add configuration statements to your startup
What is the purpose of GUI map configuration?

only the selected set of properties that WinRunner learns.
What is the purpose of obligatory and optional properties of the objects?
For each class, WinRunner learns a
set of default properties. Each default property is classified obligatory
An obligatory property
is always learned (if it exists).
property is used only if the obligatory properties do not provide unique
identification of an object. These optional properties are stored in a list.
WinRunner selects the minimum number of properties from this list that are
necessary to identify the object. It begins with the first property in the list,
and continues, if necessary, to add properties to the description until it
obtains unique identification for the object
