AppiumCheckSettings class

The methods in this class are used as part of the check Fluent API to configure and execute checkpoints.

To use these methods, first create a target object using a method from the Target class, then call one or more of the methods in this class on the returned object, chaining them one after the other using the '.' operator.

Import statement

import com.applitools.eyes.appium.AppiumCheckSettings;

eyes.check(Target.window().content(regions))
eyes.check(Target.window().content())
eyes.check(Target.window().content(element, elements))
eyes.check(Target.window().content(elements))

Parameters

region

Type: Region

An object that defines a rectangular area in the window.

regions

Type: Region...

An array of Region objects that defines rectangular areas in the checked image.

regions

Type: Region[]

An array of Region objects that defines rectangular areas in the checked image.

Return value

Type: ICheckSettings

The value returned is the object that called the method. You can use it to call other methods supported by the object class.

Remarks

You can call this method in two ways - with parameters and without parameters. The meaning of the method, and the way it can be used is different in each case. When the method is called without parameters it sets the default match level for this target. When called with one or more regions as parameters it defines the match level for that region. The sections below provide some more details regarding how to use this method in each of these modes.

Called without parameters

If this method is called without parameters then it sets the default match level for this target. This overrides the hard-coded default and the default match level defined by using setMatchLevel.

For a given target you may call only one of the following methods (without parameters) that set a target default match level:

Called with parameters

When the method is called with one or more parameters that define one or more regions, then these set the match level for those regions, overiding the defaults set for the target (by calling these methods without a parameter), set by setMatchLevel and the hardcoded default match level.

You may define multiple regions that have an explicit match level by calling this method multiple times in a chain, or by passing the method multiple regions.

The region matchlevel methods strict(regions), layout(regions)., content(regions). checksettings.strictregions (not yet available in appium java)(regions), checksettings.layoutregions (not yet available in appium java)(regions)., checksettings.contentregions (not yet available in appium java)(regions) should not overlap each other or the regions defined using ignore(regions). checksettings.ignoreregions (not yet available in appium java)(regions). If they overlap each other, or regions that defined using the Test Manager then the results is undefined.

Remarks

This method sets the default match level for this target. This overrides the hard-coded default and the default match level defined by using setMatchLevel.

For a given target you may call only one of the following methods that set a target default match level:

To set a match level for a one or more regions within a target use one of the following methods:

Return value

Type: ICheckSettings

The value returned is the object that called the method. You can use it to call other methods supported by the object class.

Remarks

Remarks

This method overrides the global default or the most recent value set by the Eyes.setForceFullPageScreenshot method or Configuration.setForceFullPageScreenshot method.

The timeout to use in milliseconds.

variationGroupId method

Syntax

eyes.check(Target.window().variationGroupId(variationGroupId))

Parameters

variationGroupId

Type: String

The value of the variation group ID to be set.

Return value

Type: ICheckSettings

visualGridOptions method

Syntax

eyes.check(Target.window().visualGridOptions(options))

Parameters

options

Type: VisualGridOption...

One or more options for configuring the Ultrafast Grid.

Return value

Type: ICheckSettings

Remarks

The following configuration key/value pairs are currently supported:

'chromeHeadless'

Normally, the Ultrafast Grid renders its images using Headless Chrome. There are cases where the behavior of Headless Chrome is different from that of regular Chrome browser, and if the baseline was created with a regular Chrome browser, the differences will be found. Set this option to a value of false to instruct the Ultrafast Grid to use a regular Chrome browser instead of the Headless Chrome browser, so as to eliminate differences that arise because of the different types of Chrome browser.

'polyfillAdoptedStyleSheets'

Adopted Stylesheets are a way to create and distribute reusable styles when using a Shadow DOM. Adopted Stylesheets are not supported by all browsers, so their use may cause mismatches when doing cross-browser validation. By default, when the Ultrafast Grid detects that a page being checked uses Adopted Stylesheets, it will not render that checkpoint, the check will fail, and the test will be aborted. In the Test Manager, the test results for that run will have an Aborted status, and the step that failed will have a Missing status.

To enable rendering of checkpoints that include Adopted Stylesheets, and to ensure that the test can complete successfully, you need to explicitly set the Ultrafast Grid option polyfillAdoptedStyleSheets to a value of true or false:

  • Setting a value of true instructs the Ultrafast Grid to polyfill Adopted Stylesheets.
  • Setting a value of false instructs the Ultrafast Grid to render the page without polyfilling Adopted Stylesheets.

You can set this option globally using the method Configuration.setVisualGridOptions

You can override the global value for a given checkpoint using the method AppiumCheckSettings.visualGridOptions.

Example

Java

eyes.check(
Target.window()
.visualGridOptions(new VisualGridOption("polyfillAdoptedStyleSheets", true)));

withName method

Syntax

eyes.check(Target.window().withName(name))

Parameters

name

Type: String

The name to be given to this check point.

Return value

Type: ICheckSettings

The value returned is the object that called the method. You can use it to call other methods supported by the object class.

Remarks

You may only call this method once in a given chain.
