Declarations may be edited if
a window item should have a different name than the default, a tag or
class requires a wildcard, or a control or window item needs to be added
manually. However, editing a Window Declarations file is NOT
RECOMMENDED until the user is familiar and comfortable with the
format of a Window Declarations file.
Window declarations can be edited using a standard
ASCII text editor. However, it is important to use an editor that
interprets tabs as a '\t' character, rather than a set of spaces. For
example, the DOS editor treats a tab character as a set of spaces, and
is not recommended for editing a Window Declarations file. Notepad
treats a tab as a '\t' character, and can be used to edit a Window Declarations
file. The tab order of the Window Declarations elements is very
important for the Window Declarations to work correctly.
Phantom Test Driver (PTD) version 2.0 and later includes a window declarations
editor built-in. Additionally, a window declarations file can be opened
and edited in the Window Declarations Recorder that comes with Phantom
version 2.0 and later.
