SetProperty (Property, Value)

Description

This command can change the configuration on the device during runtime. It will set the given property to the given value.

Parameters

  • Property :  Property (See the supported properties below)
  • Value : The value to be set

Supported Properties:

PropertyValueFunctionSupported in
hybridClick Enable/disable or true/false (default mode = disable/false)When hybridClick is enabled, click method will be executed using javascript.

Supported in iOS Supported in Android

report.image.width Size in pixels (default value: 500)Defines the size, in pixels, of the generated images in the report.

Supported in iOS Supported in Android

screen.latencyUnit in millisecondsSome commands, for instance, SeeTestAutomation - Click, result in two screenshots in a report: a pre-action shot, which is taken right before the command execution starts, and a post-action shot. The value of screen.latency is used in the calculation of the time when the latter screenshot is taken. Namely, SeeTestAutomation holds on during screen.latency since the action of the current step is forwarded to a physical device and then grabs its post-action screenshot. Thus if you notice that the post-action screenshot is taken too early, you can tune the latency of its taking by updating the value of screen.latency. As a trade-off, however, this will slow down the execution of the test

Supported in iOS Supported in Android

screen.quality 1-100 (percentages)To change the quality of the image received from the device.

Supported in iOS Supported in Android

screen.refresh Greater than 0 in millisecondsTo control the refresh rate time gap to get a new image from the device.

Supported in iOS Supported in Android

ignore.ocr.recommendation true/falseTo enable/disable OCR recognition.

Supported in iOS Supported in Android

Android .instrumentation.security none, smart, hard (default value: smart)

To disable the Android LayoutParams FLAG_SECURE.

  • none - will not disable the security flag.
  • smart - will disable the security flag when activity resumes.
  • hard - will disable the security flag on the activity resume and in a repeated sequence (every few sec).

Supported in Android

on.device.xpath true/falseIf it is set to true, it causes any web command that is using XPath to be calculated on the device itself. This enables a faster response. As part of the properties shown in the object spy are derivative it will not work on the device. So, if the XPath contains one of the followings tags, it will not be executed on the device (even if the property is set to true):
@onScreen, @top, @css, @width, @height, @x, @y, @hidden, @text or @nodeName

Supported in iOS Supported in Android

assert.element.idletrue/ false. (default value: false)

This property is used to control SeeTest verification behavior regarding busy elements. When the property is set to true, SeeTest will fail a command if the element in question is found on screen but in a busy state. Otherwise, the verification will ignore its busy state.

Usage examples:
1. To identify a toast which generally is a busy element, use: assert.element.idle=false.

2. To click on an element, use: assert.element.idle=true (because clicks do not work on busy elements).


Note

This property is available also as an 'app-property', which can be declared and set on/off in the app.properties file. 


Supported in Android

element.visibility.level



full/center/none/legacy_mode default value:  legacy_mode.

This property is an app property used to define the desired visibility level of elements on the device's screen for the testing flow.

Following are the visibility levels supported:
full: fully contained; This mode defines the element visibility based on whether the element rectangle is fully contained within the screen rectangle.
center: center contained; This mode defines the element visibility based on whether the center of the element (click point) is visible on the screen
none: no visibility constraints: This mode does not verify element visibility on screen once the element is found in Dump
legacy_mode: Maintains old legacy - the current default mode

For example:

Running isElementFound() on an element that is completely hidden by the devices navigation bar will retrieve the following based on each mode:

Full: false

center: false

none: true

Note: elementSwipe.partialAppearance property is deprecated and it is recommended to use element.visibility.level property instead.

Supported in iOS Supported in Android

chrome.load.timeout integer>=0 (time in milliseconds). Default value: 10,000 ms for local devices and 15000 ms for cloud devices.This property is a device property used to control the operations timeout on chrome. 
For example:  
1. when executing ' launch(chrome:...) ' command, the requested website tries to load on the current tab, this process requires first loading the last website opened on this tab and if the loading process got timed-out. Chrome will load the new URL in a new tab.  

2. Under bad network conditions, chrome might exhibit a performance deterioration. This property allows you to adjust chrome operations timeout under different network conditions.
