Working With Android Grid View Controls

Applies to TestComplete 14.93, last modified on September 27, 2021

Grid view (GridView) controls are used to display a collection of items in a scrollable grid. A user can navigate in the grid view by touching items, iterating through the items, searching for the value.

TestComplete allows you to create and play back various kinds of user actions on grid view controls and work with their data from scripts.

TestComplete associates grid view controls in the tested application with Android GridView scripting objects by analyzing the application type and the controls’ class names. Supported grid view classes are listed in the project’s Object Mapping options. You can extend this list, for example, add the class name of a custom list view control used in your tested application, and thus enable the recording and scripting support for this control. For more information, see Default Project Properties - Object Mapping Options.

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

Note: Though the following topics deal with scripts, you can use the same approaches while testing applications from your keyword tests. For more information, see Keyword Tests Basic Operations.
