Global variable criterion

You can use global variables to define your screen recognition criteria by clicking the down arrow beside the Add button and selecting Global Variable Criterion. If you use global variable criterion, you must either specify a global variable from the Global Variable drop-down list or type in the value. Specify the Verification logic by selecting one of the five bullets:
  • This global variable exists
  • This global variable does not exist
  • Check the length of this global variable where you can specify how the length will be compared from the drop-down list, as well as the length to compare.
  • Check the integer value of this global variable where you can specify how the integer value will be compared from the drop-down list, as well as the integer value to compare.
  • Check the string value of this global variable where you can specify how the string value will be compared from the drop-down list, as well as the string value to compare.

For an explanation of the Optional and Invert check boxes, in the Attributes section, see Optional versus non-optional screen recognition criteria and Inverted match of screen recognition criteria.
