Applies to TestComplete 14.10, last modified on May 13, 2019

One of possible testing approaches you can take to make your Flash or Flex application accessible to TestComplete is to use the Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) engine. For information on other available testing approaches, see Which Testing Approach to Choose.

Note that depending on the approach you use to test a Flash or Flex application, different sets of objects, controls and exposed object members become available to TestComplete. Since using the MSAA approach may not provide the required level of access to applications’ internals, we recommend using it if other testing approaches cannot be used.

The topics of this section describe specifics of testing Flash applications via the Microsoft Active Accessibility engine.
