  • Expandable Expression Objects (sub-items) in UFT Watch Window?
Question ID: 106493

How can I make my expression objects expandable in the UFT Watch window?

Since installing UFT 12.02 on a separate machine in trial version, watch expressions of built-in UFT web objects have Object for Value. In version 11, licensed, on my laptop, UFT display 4 sub-items for a browser object. A useful side effect is that when the object does not exist, 11.05 would display 3 sub-items. Is there a way to get the same behavior in 12.02 for watch expressions or is this a side effect of my environment.

The included Microsoft Script Debugger is fairly old/limited. To update in order to enable enhanced debugging features (including being able to expand objects in the UFT Watch window), you can either install Visual Studio which will automatically register a newer version of the PDM.dll, or you can grab an updated version from Internet Explorer (copy C:Program FilesInternet Explorerpdm.dll to C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedVS7DEBUGpdm.dll and register it using regsvr32).
