Working With Syncfusion GridControl

Applies to TestComplete 14.74, last modified on March 01, 2021

TestComplete can simulate user actions over the GridControl of the Syncfusion Essential Grid library (WinForms version) in the same manner as it does with windows. You can simulate mouse clicks, keystrokes, execute low-level procedures, and so on. Since GridControl is a .NET control and is used only within .NET applications, which are always “open” to TestComplete, the properties and methods of the GridControl are also visible to TestComplete. This “openness” means that you can use the GridControl's native methods and properties to perform desired actions, for example, to get the value of a grid cell.

In order for you to get access to internal objects, methods and properties of the tested .NET application with the GridControl, the .NET Application Support plugin must be installed and enabled.

The topics of this section contain information about operations commonly performed when testing applications with Syncfusion GridControl. 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 the Essential Grid library.
