Features Added to TestComplete 7.10

Applies to TestComplete 14.72, last modified on December 24, 2020

This topic describes the changes made to TestComplete 7.10. For information on the changes made to other versions of the product, see Version History.

  • Enhanced menu item addressing. Now the Items property of the Menu object lets you access the desired menu item by its index and name. See Addressing Menu Items.

  • Automatic logging of successful checkpoints. Keyword test operations of the Checkpoints category as well as the appropriate scripting methods now log a success message if the verification passes.

  • Improved Property Checkpoint keyword test operation. In earlier versions, when you added the Property Checkpoint operation to a keyword test, TestComplete created the If... Then and Log Message operations that performed the verification and logged the result. Now Property Checkpoint is a full-fledged operation with its own UI for specifying the checkpoint parameters.

  • New script method to perform property checkpoints. The new aqObject.CompareProperty method provides a convenient way to perform various kinds of property checkpoints in scripts.

  • New action to simulate closing a tabbed page. The new CloseTab action has been added to the InfragisticsWinTab and SyncfusionTabView objects. This action allows you to close a specific tabbed page in the appropriate tab controls.

  • Enhanced Object Mapping. A Project’s Object Mapping options now include a new Derived Classes setting that lets you quickly associate all descendant classes of the selected class with the appropriate object type.

  • Easier navigation between keyword tests and related project items. The context menu of the Keyword Test editor includes new commands that help you quickly navigate between keyword tests and related project items and panels:

    • Show in Object Browser - Opens the Object Browser panel and selects an object specified in the current On-Screen Action operation.

    • Show in Name Mapping Editor - Opens the Name Mapping editor and selects an object specified by its mapped name or alias in the current On-Screen Action operation.

    • Go to Checkpoint’s Data Editor - Applied to an operation of the Checkpoints category, opens the appropriate checkpoint’s editor.

  • Support for Qt 4.4.3. Qt support modules included in TestComplete 7’s installation package provide support for the latest Qt version currently available: 4.5.0. Now, Qt v. 4.4.3 support modules are also available and can be downloaded from our web site:

    https://support.smartbear.com/downloads/testcomplete/qt-modules/

    The package contains the modules as well as installation notes.

  • New option to display the PDA Controller during test recording. TestComplete provides a new option, Show PDA Controller when recording starts, which lets you specify whether the PDA Controller panel should be automatically displayed when you start recording a mobile application test.

  • New load test setting. The Load Test editor includes a new Correct Host Field setting that specifies whether TestComplete should substitute the recorded host name with the Target Server value of the load test tasks. You can enable this setting to redirect load testing tasks to another host when the tested Web server’s address changes.

  • Better control over remote desktop connections used by network suites. In previous versions, when you run a network suite or perform verification operations, TestComplete always invoked the remote desktop window. That caused redundant traffic and could lead to unwanted user interference. Now you can specify whether to display or hide that window via the Show remote desktop window option.

  • Improved Table Checkpoint wizard. The Table Checkpoint wizard has been re-designed to provide better step-by-step assistance during the checkpoint creation.

  • Improved object selection in the Object Properties window. Selecting an object to explore with the Object Properties window is now more convenient. In previous versions, you had to switch between different object selection modes and could use only one mode at a time. Now both modes are directly available via the appropriate buttons.

    This improvement made the Capture mouse option obsolete and it has now been removed.

  • The Record Low-Level Procedure (screen coordinates) and Record Windows CE Low-Level Procedure buttons on the Recording toolbar have been grouped into a drop-down list.
