Working With Syncfusion GridGroupingControl

Applies to TestComplete 14.81, last modified on May 04, 2021

TestComplete has the Syncfusion System Control Support plugin that expands TestComplete abilities to interact with Syncfusion Essential Grid (GridGroupingControl) controls from scripts. If this plugin is installed and enabled, TestComplete extends the GridGroupingControl functionality with methods, properties and actions of the SyncfusionEssGrid object. These supplementary members let you perform specific operations over GridGroupingControl, for example, simulate clicks on grid cells, obtains and set values in grid cells, expand and collapse rows and so on.

Since GridGroupingControl is a .NET control and can be used within .NET applications, which are always “open” to TestComplete, the internal methods and properties of the GridGroupingControl object are also visible to TestComplete. This “openness” means that you can use the GridGroupingControl’s “native” methods and properties to perform the needed actions as well.

Finally, you can work with GridGroupingControl as a black-box application window, that is, you can simulate various mouse actions and keystrokes, record and play back low-level procedures, and so on. For more information, see Simulating User Actions.

In order for TestComplete to have access to internal methods and properties of the GridGroupingControl object and to extend the GridGroupingControl functionality, both the .NET Application Support and Syncfusion Systems Control Support plugins must be installed and enabled.

The topics of this section contain information about operations commonly performed during testing applications with the GridGroupingControl. They also contain numerous sample routines that you can use in your scripts with minimum changes. The sample scripts in these topics work with the sample applications that are shipped with Syncfusion Essential Studio.
