I have a clientFirstNameTextBox that contained data, say John, when the object was added to the OR. Indeed viewing the the OR the object shows as having "John" in the Text attribute.
Since this is a variable field, is it OK to use the OR and click on the Add/Remove button then locate the Text attribute and uncheck it?
Why would I want this you may ask. It seems to me that there will be no dependencies on this attribute to contain any particular data.
Social Engineering - do they ever use QA?
Well it's OK to do that and you can also configure the properties the QTP learns for a particular type of a object.
