TagUI can use steps such as click to interact with identifiers that include image snapshots e.g. image of a button or image of text.
TagUI can OCR images (read the text content from a .PNG for example) match images to UI elements and carry out a step based on the result.
Instead of using steps such as click/type based on XPath UI elements, images can be referenced.
A snapshot image could be used to represent a search input field to type text into:
In both examples the PNG files are images of the screen search box and login button and are as valid as other identifiers when ensuring the appropriate UI element is selected.
As an example if there is a PNG of a form date field
To enter a date into the field referenced as an image the following code can be used:
In other circumstances the element on a web page can be referenced using XPath for example.
Where this is not possible images of UI or text can be saved and used within scripts.
Snapshot images used within a Word TagUI script are saved in an images folder within the working Word document folder.
