Use UII inspector to create bindings for the hosted application in Unified Service Desk

After you create a hosted application, you can inspect it to create bindings. Inspecting an application means that you can select user interface (UI) controls for automating the hosted application. More information: Automate hosted applications using HAT automation activities

  1. Right-click the application to view the Application Context menu, and then choose Inspect.

    Use the shortcut menu to configure.

  2. The application selected is displayed and is ready to be inspected. This example uses the web application created in the previous section.

  3. Choose UII Inspector on the toolbar to display the UII Inspector dialog box. Make sure that the Visual Studio Toolbox is not in focus when you choose the UII Inspector button. If it is, the UII Inspector displays the following error message: "Active Window is not the UII Inspector."

  4. With the UII Inspector dialog box open, move the mouse over the control you want to capture, and then press the Ctrl key. The Inspector will provide a default control name and retrieve the component's binding information.

  • SearchText – The text field on the home page.

  • Search – The search button in the home page.

  • SearchText2 – The text field on the results page.
