ImagesCheckSettings class

The methods in this class are used as part of the checkWithTag 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, using a series of nested calls.

Import statement

@import EyesImagesAppKit

accessibility method

Syntax

Call syntax

id<CheckSettingsProtocol> target =  [ obj accessibility  : region Type:  type   ]
;

Declaration

(id<CheckSettingsProtocol>)accessibility:(Region *)region Type: (AccessibilityRegionType)type

Parameters

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: id<CheckSettingsProtocol>

Remarks

content method

Syntax

Call syntax

id<CheckSettingsProtocol> target =  [ obj content  : regions   ]
;

id<CheckSettingsProtocol> target = [ obj content ]
;

Declaration

(id<CheckSettingsProtocol>)content

Parameters

regions

Type: NSArray<Region *>*

One or more region definitions.

Return value

Type: id<CheckSettingsProtocol>

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 matchLevel.

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 matchLevel 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 imagesappkit objectivec)(regions), checksettings.layoutregions (not yet available in imagesappkit objectivec)(regions)., checksettings.contentregions (not yet available in imagesappkit objectivec)(regions) should not overlap each other or the regions defined using ignore(regions). checksettings.ignoreregions (not yet available in imagesappkit objectivec)(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 matchLevel.

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:

Parameters

regions

Type: NSArray<Region *>*

One or more region definitions.

maxOffset

maxRightOffset

Type: NSInteger

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

maxLeftOffset

Type: NSInteger

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

Return value

Type: id<CheckSettingsProtocol>

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.

id<CheckSettingsProtocol> target =  [ obj fully    ]
;

Declaration

(id<CheckSettingsProtocol>)fully

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: id<CheckSettingsProtocol>

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 [Eyes ignoreCaret] property or [Configuration ignoreCaret] property.
