During recording, if QuickTest is unable to uniquely identify a browser object based solely on its test object description, it assigns a value to the CreationTime test object property. This value indicates the order in which the browser was opened relative to other open browsers with an otherwise identical description.During the run session, if QuickTest is unable to identify a browser object based solely on its test object description, it examines the order in which the browsers were opened, and then uses the CreationTime property to identify the correct one.
For example, if you record a test or component on three otherwise identical browsers, opened at 9:01 pm, 9:03 pm, and 9:05 pm, QuickTest assigns the CreationTime values 0 to the 9:01 pm browser, 1 to the 9:03 pm browser, and 2 to the 9:05 pm browser.
At 10:30 pm, when you rerun your test or component, suppose the browsers are opened at 10:31 pm, 10:33 pm, and 10:34 pm. QuickTest identifies the 10:31 pm browser with the browser test object with CreationTime = 0, the 10:33 pm browser with the test object with CreationTime = 1, and the 10:34 pm browser with the test object with CreationTime = 2.
