Applies to TestComplete 14.20, last modified on September 11, 2019

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.
