ImagesCheckSettings 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.

Require statement

const {ImagesCheckSettings} = require('@applitools/eyes-images');

accessibilityRegion method

Syntax

eyes.check(Target.window().accessibilityRegion(region, regionType));

Parameters

region

Type:

GetAccessibilityRegion|Region|AccessibilityMatchSettings

An object that defines a rectangular area in the window.

regionType

Type: AccessibilityRegionType

The accessibility type of the region.

Return value

Type: ImagesCheckSettings

Remarks

content method

Syntax

eyes.check(Target.window().content());

Parameters

This method does not take any parameters.

Return value

Type: ImagesCheckSettings

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). strictRegions(regions), layoutRegions(regions)., contentRegions(regions) should not overlap each other or the regions defined using ignore(regions). ignoreRegions(regions). If they overlap each other, or regions that defined using the Test Manager then the results is undefined.

Return value

Type: ImagesCheckSettings

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 define multiple regions that have an explicit match level by calling this method multiple times, or by passing the method multiple regions.

The region matchlevel methods strict(regions), layout(regions)., content(regions). strictRegions(regions), layoutRegions(regions)., contentRegions(regions) should not overlap each other or the regions defined using ignore(regions). ignoreRegions(regions). If they overlap each other, or regions that defined using the Test Manager then the results is undefined.

Parameters

ignoreCaret

If this parameter has a value of true, then Eyes will detect artifacts caused by a blinking cursor and will not report a mismatch for differences caused by these artifacts. If it has a value of , then Eyes will not try to detect artifacts caused by blinking cursors. If no parameter is passed then the default value is true - so the cursor artifacts will be ignored.

Return value

Type: ImagesCheckSettings

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