The process of surveying all windows (including dialog boxes and web pages) currently
open on a test system, establishing their TA properties and values, and retaining that
information in cache. During test development, TestArchitect
performs a system intake whenever you open
or refresh the Interface Viewer
, allowing you to view the system's
current window environment. During playback, system intake is performed on the test machine
at automation startup, and again whenever deemed necessary by the automation.
