Edit Component dialog box - Field Usage Descriptions

Field Usage Description
Component Name Modify the textual name of your choosing that uniquely identifies the component.
Sample URL Modify the URL of one page in which the component exists. This is necessary for automated testing
Selector Modify the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) selector that defines the element in which the component exists to target that element in automated testing. This can be a simple selector such as a class or ID, or a selector path. For more information, see CSS Selector Process.
Elements present on page Check all that apply. Uncheck the checked box to deselect it, as desired. This allows you to target or ignore specific types of elements and their associated accessibility rules and checkpoints to limit what is being tested.
Instructions Type any detailed textual instructions that are important for the tester to understand prior to testing the component (for example, specific information required for accessing and/or exposing the page elements to be tested). Note: Select and drag the bottom right corner of the text box to expand it outward when a larger field space is necessary.
