This chapter describes the classes and methods available in the C++test API so that you can add them to your rule definitions in RuleWizard. Some properties are node-type dependent and not all of these properties are accessible. If a property is not accessible, a -1 will be returned if the return type is a number. An empty string will be returned if the return type is a string.
