[WebUI] Modify Object Property


Modify existing property or add a new property to test object. Use when test object has attributes changing in runtime. This keyword does not modify the object saved in Object Repository, instead, it creates another test object, modifies and returns this test object. Hence, users must use a variable to store the returned object.
