TestComplete samples (both built-in and additional) are located in the <Users>\Public\Public Documents\TestComplete 14 Samples folder.
Some file managers display the Public Documents folder as Documents.
To complete this tutorial, you need the following:
An active license for the TestComplete Mobile Module.
One of the supported devices running iOS 11.0 - 11.4, 12.0 - 12.3, 13.0 - 13.2.
A Mac computer with Xcode, iOS SDK, and an iOS development license to compile the sample Orders application for iOS and retrieve certificate files.
One of the supported devices running Android 4.0.1 - 4.4.x, 5.0 - 5.1.1, 6.0, 7.0 - 7.1.1, 8.0 - 8.1, 9.0 (API Level 15 - 19, 21 - 28), 10.0.
In this tutorial, we will use the Xamarin.Forms version of the Orders application (for the Android and iOS platforms) that is shipped with TestComplete. You can find the application in the following folders:
For Android Xamarin.Forms applications use the assembled .apk file. To use the iOS sample, build the .ipa file yourself.
The Android application
The iOS application
The application lets you manage a table of purchase orders: you can view a list of existing orders, modify or remove them, and add new orders to the list.
Add your iOS device to the provisioning profile of your tested application as described in Registering iOS Devices for Testing.
Compile the Orders application for iOS as described in Preparing Xamarin.Forms iOS Applications.
Prepare your iOS device for testing as described in Preparing iOS Devices.
Prepare your Android device for testing as described in Preparing Devices, Emulators and Virtual Machines.
Prepare your computer for testing as described in Preparing Test Computers and TestComplete for iOS Testing and Preparing Test Computers and TestComplete for Android Testing.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to record a test for a Xamarin.Forms application on an iOS device and then run it on an Android device. If you are going to record your test on an Android device, we recommend that you configure your device to use the TestComplete Android Agent keyboard instead of its native onscreen keyboard. Otherwise, TestComplete may fail to record user input for text edit controls. See the Known Issues section in the About Xamarin.Forms Application Testing topic.
To learn how to configure your Android device to use the Agent keyboard, see About TestComplete Android Agent Keyboard.
