TestComplete supports testing of various AngularUI controls. You can also modify project properties so that TestComplete recognizes your custom AngularUI controls. The sections below describe how you can test AngularUI controls in detail.
About Testing AngularUI Controls
TestComplete can work with any web control via the control’s graphical user interface displayed in a web browser, no matter how the control is implemented on the server side. You can test web applications that use controls implemented by using various technologies and frameworks, including Angular frameworks and component libraries (like AngularUI, Angular Material, and etc.).
Besides, TestComplete provides extended support for most of AngularUI controls. It automatically associates them with special scripting test objects that contain supplementary methods and properties for working with the controls, for example, for selecting individual items and retrieving the item text.
Support for AngularUI controls is rather transparent. During test recording, TestComplete automatically recognizes AngularUI controls on a page and records the appropriate test commands for your actions. You can then run the recorded test to see how TestComplete simulates user actions on the controls. The entire procedure is very similar to recording and running web tests that work with “regular” web controls. See Web Testing Tutorial, then try to record and run tests on your AngularUI web pages.
Why my control may be missing from the Object Browser
There can be a situation when your AngularUI control is recognized by TestComplete but is excluded from the object hierarchy of your tested application (the hierarchy you can explore with the Object Browser or the Object Spy). This happens because TestComplete excludes custom web elements that do not have a role assigned to them or do not have text contents. To learn more about it, see Web Elements Included in and Excluded From the Object Hierarchy. To avoid the issue, make sure that your tested control has either the role assigned to it in the application source code or has the non-empty text content.
Below is a full list of the AngularUI controls for which TestComplete provides extended support.

A license for the Web module of TestComplete.
The AngularUI Control Support plugin. It provides access to controls via special program objects.
The following plugins:
Web Testing - Implements web testing, enables testing of web applications running in Internet Explorer, Edge or WebBrowser control (but not the Edge-based WebBrowser control).
Firefox Support - Enables testing of web applications running in Mozilla Firefox.
Chrome Support - Enables testing of web applications running in Google Chrome.
Chromium Embedded Framework Support - Enables web testing in applications created with Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) or with Electron.
All these plugins are installed and enabled automatically.
If you experience issues when working with the controls, select File | Install Extensions from the main menu of TestComplete to check whether the plugins are active. If a plugin is not available, run the TestComplete installation in the Repair mode.
