TestComplete offers a set of functions to work with standard Win32 controls from your tests, including the HotKey control. This control allows you to create key combinations that can be used as shortcuts.
In the tested application, TestComplete associates HotKey controls with the
Win32HotKey object by analyzing the controls’ class names. Class names of standard HotKey controls are listed in the project’s Object Mapping options. If your tested application uses a HotKey control that is inherited from a standard HotKey control, you can associate it with the
Win32HotKey object by adding its class name to the Object Mapping list.
You can use properties and methods of this object to work with the HotKey control. For instance, you can use these properties to set and get the text of the HotKey control. The topics of this section describe how to work with HotKey controls.
|Note:||Though the following topics deal with scripts, you can use the same approaches while testing an application from your keyword tests. For more information, see Keyword Tests Basic Operations.|
