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.

accessibility method

Syntax

eyes.Check(Target.window().accessibility(region))
eyes.Check(Target.window().accessibility(region, type))

Parameters

region

Type: Region

An object that defines a rectangular area in the window.

region

Type: Region

An object that defines a rectangular area in the window.

type

Type: AccessibilityRegionType

The accessibility type of the region.

Return value

Type: Self

Remarks

content method

Syntax

eyes.Check(Target.window().content(regions))

Parameters

regions

Type: Region

One or more region definitions.

Return value

Type: Self

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 match_level.

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 match_level 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 images python_sdk4)(regions), checksettings.layoutregions (not yet available in images python_sdk4)(regions)., checksettings.contentregions (not yet available in images python_sdk4)(regions) should not overlap each other or the regions defined using ignore(regions). checksettings.ignoreregions (not yet available in images python_sdk4)(regions). If they overlap each other, or regions that defined using the Test Manager then the results is undefined.

exact method

Syntax

eyes.Check(Target.window().exact())

Parameters

This method does not take any parameters.

Return value

Type:

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

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 eyes$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:

floating method

Syntax

eyes.check(name,Target().image(img).floating(max_offset, region))
eyes.check(name,Target().image(img).floating(region, max_up_offset, max_down_offset, max_left_offset, max_right_offset))

Parameters

max_offset

Type: int

The maximum amount that the region can shift in any direction and still be considered matching.

region

Type: Region

An object that defines the region.

region

Type: Region

An object that defines the region.

max_up_offset

Type: int

The maximum amount that the region can shift upwards and still be considered matching.

max_down_offset

Type: int

The maximum amount that the region can shift downwards and still be considered matching.

max_left_offset

Type: int

The maximum amount that the region can shift to the left and still be considered matching.

max_right_offset

Type: int

The maximum amount that the region can shift to the right and still be considered matching.

Return value

Type: Self

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 call this method multiple times in a given chain; each call defines a different floating region. Floating regions may not overlap each other or other types of regions, such as ignore or match level regions.

ignore method

Syntax

eyes.check(name, Target().image(img).ignore(regions))

Parameters

regions

Type: Region

One or more region definitions.

Return value

Type: Self

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 call this method multiple times in a given chain.

Ignore regions should not overlap each other or other types of regions such as floating or match level regions.

ignore_caret method

Syntax

eyes.Check(Target.window().ignore_caret(ignore))
eyes.Check(Target.window().ignore_caret())

Parameters

ignore

Type: bool [Optional : default = True ]

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: Self

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. This method overrides the global default setting or the setting chosen explicitly for the current target using Configuration.set_ignore_caret method.

ignore_displacements method

Syntax

eyes.Check(Target.window().ignore_displacements(should_ignore))
eyes.Check(Target.window().ignore_displacements())

Parameters

should_ignore

Type: bool [Optional : default = True ]

If a value of True is passed, then mismatches due to displaced content will not be displayed in the Test Manager. Otherwise, they will be displayed.

Return value

Type: Self

Remarks

Ignore displacements is only active when using a Match level of STRICT or CONTENT

layout method

Syntax

eyes.Check(Target.window().layout(regions))

Parameters

regions

Type: Region

Zero or more additional rectangle objects separated by commas or passed as an array.

Return value

Type: Self

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 match_level.

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 match_level 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 images python_sdk4)(regions), checksettings.layoutregions (not yet available in images python_sdk4)(regions)., checksettings.contentregions (not yet available in images python_sdk4)(regions) should not overlap each other or the regions defined using ignore(regions). checksettings.ignoreregions (not yet available in images python_sdk4)(regions). If they overlap each other, or regions that defined using the Test Manager then the results is undefined.
