UFT 11.53 unable to identify Devexpress controls

Hi,

 

Could someone please advise does UFT supports devexpress controls as the application trying to automate consists of these controls.

 

UFT 11.53  unable to recognise pivot grids,ribbon control,tab control, menu items etc and identified as swfobjects which provides limited methods to work.

 

Do I need to do some settings or missing something.

 

Appreciate your help.

 

Thank you

Re: UFT 11.53 unable to identify Devexpress controls

We currently use UFT against a .net desktop applicaiton developed with the DevExpress framework.   I will admit we've had some challenges in interacting with objects as well as locating them easily.    I cannot provide any insight to location of elements because that seems to be based on how the applicaiton is developed.

 

As for the objects - I've found we can always interact with elements at the .object level.    We have written some simple wrappers for frequent actions to make our lives easier.    If infrequent, we just use something like SwfObject("name").object.action to do stuff.    Not perfect, not horrible...

I do agree this is one alternative, but the AUT intellisence is not showing up any  any methods after .object. Hence we are unable to proceed further.

 

Do you have any insight for this?

Re: UFT 11.53 unable to identify Devexpress controls

this is similar to the issue we have on my application. the menu ribbons are not recognizable same thing with the tabs. the application is coded on a .net framework using VB and wpf plus actipro wcf suite. i hope someone from here can help me fixing the issue.

hi, Ervin

UFT 11.53 is quite old a version that the support to it is stopped. If it is possible to upgrade UFT to 14.03 latest patch, please do and retry.

Thanks.
