Working With Android Switch Controls

Applies to TestComplete 14.93, last modified on September 16, 2021

Switch controls are used to provide a user with an option that can be on or off. A user can touch or swipe the switch to change its state. TestComplete provides extended support for Android switch controls.

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

Supported switch classes are listed in the project’s Object Mapping options. You can extend this list, for example, add the class name of a custom switch 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.

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 switch controls in TestComplete and contain script samples that illustrate the explanation.
