We can verify the position of an object using UFT by utilizing two properties named clientWidth and offSetLeft. Suppose that we have two elements namely element1 and element2 and we have to verify if element2 is in the extreme right of element1.
Logic behind verifying position of an object using UFT
To understand the logic behind this, first, we need to understand the two properties we are going to work on and what are they for.
The principle of verifying this is if element2 leaves as much screen width as to contain the element1 width, it means that element 2 is in the extreme right of element 1.
