2. Create a Test (Legacy)

Applies to TestComplete 15.65, last modified on July 17, 2024
The information below concerns legacy mobile tests that work with mobile devices connected to the local computer. For new mobile tests, we recommend using the newer cloud-compatible approach.
  1. Open the Mobile Screen window. TestComplete records only those actions over mobile applications that you perform in this window. To open the window, click Show Mobile Screen on the Test Engine toolbar:

    After you start recording, TestComplete will automatically deploy the Orders application to the mobile device and start this application. This will happen because you enabled the Deploy to the device on start and Autorun options while creating the test project at the previous step.

  3. TestComplete will launch the tested application:

    • To verify the data, we will use the ItemsSource property. It provides access to individual items of tree view controls. To find this property quickly, you can use the Search text box.

    • Click the OBJ button. The table cell will expand. Find the Item element and click PAR.

    • To specify the cell holding the Mark Twain string, enter 5 in the Value box (5 is the index of the Mark Twain item in the tree view. Indexes are zero-based). Then press Enter and click the OBJ button to access the retrieved object.

    • Select the CustomerName field of the resulting object.
