Re: [QF-Test] Enforce Parent Container Match

Hello Jile,

QF-Test's recognition mechanism is explicitly tuned to filter
invisible components, so this is not going to be trivial.

You need to determine the component at script level, then set it as
override for the following actions.

1. You can try to directly recognize the component at script level,
overriding the hidden parameter of getComponent:

Jython version:

rc.getComponent(id, hidden=True)

Groovy version:

rc.getComponent(id, hidden: true)

If that doesn't get you the correct component, try to get the nearest
visible ancestor and work your way down to the correct target. Once
you have the correct target component, use

rc.overrideElement(self, "PriorityWebComponent", component)

so that you can use PriorityWebComopnent as the target for the
following events and checks. For Swing the id would be
PriorityAwtSwingComponent and similar for SWT and FX. These components
are predefined in the qfs.qft standard library for this purpose. The
id doesn't really matter except that it must exist and belong to the
correct GUI engine, so using the above is preferable.

Best regards,
