Working With Android Button Controls

Applies to TestComplete 15.0, last modified on October 14, 2021

Button controls are used to provide a user with a way to interact with the application. A user can use buttons by touching them. TestComplete provides extended support for Android button controls.

TestComplete analyzes the control class names and automatically creates wrapper Android Button test objects for button controls. These objects contain specific methods and properties for simulating user actions on buttons and for retrieving their data.

Supported button classes are listed in the project’s Object Mapping options. You can extend this list, for example, add the class name of a custom button control used in your tested application, and thus enable the recording and scripting support for this control. For more information, see Object Mapping.

Note: The described support is available only if the tested Android application is Open, that is, if it was prepared for TestComplete (see Preparing Android Applications (Legacy)).

The topics in this section provide detailed information about working with button controls in TestComplete and contain script samples that illustrate the explanation.
