Object Repository in QTP

The Object Repository automation object model enables you to manipulate QuickTest shared object repositories and their contents from outside of QuickTest. The automation object model enables you to use a scripting tool to access QuickTest shared object repositories via automation.
Automation programs are especially useful for performing the same tasks multiple times or on multiple shared object repositories. You can write your automation programs in any language and development environment that supports automation. For example, you can use VBScript, JavaScript, Visual Basic, Visual C++, or Visual Studio.NET.
Just as you use the QuickTest Professional automation object model to automate your QuickTest operations, you can use the objects and methods of the Object Repository automation object model to write programs that manipulate shared object repositories, instead of performing these operations manually using the Object Repository Manager. For example, you can add, remove, and rename objects; import from and export to XML; retrieve and copy objects; and so forth.
After you have retrieved an object, you can manipulate it using the methods and properties available for that test object class. For example, you can use the GetTOProperty or SetTOProperty methods to retrieve and modify its properties. For more information on available test object methods and properties, see the QuickTest Professional Object Model .

Note: You can use the Object Repository automation object model to manipulate shared object repositories saved in the file system. If you want to manipulate a shared object repository stored in Quality Center, you must download the shared object repository and save it to the file system, before using the Object Repository automation object model to manipulate it.

The below stuff is very important and very frequently used by any QTP programmer in Object identification using QTP.
