Adding a Specific Property Verification Point for a given control property more than once in a recording session results in script compilation error

Technote (troubleshooting)


Attemps to insert a Specific Property Verification Point for a control property more than once during a recording session result in script compilation error when IBM Rational Functional Tester (RFT) generates test scripts.


The variable name for the Specific Property Verification Point generated on the control property is same for all instances. Duplicate variable names are not allowed in Java and VB.

Resolving the problem

Apply one of the solutions below to resolve the issue.

  • Manually change the variable name in the script.
  • Modify the Verification Point name in the wizard while creating the second and subsequent Specific Property Verification Points on the same control property.
