Other Categories

If TestComplete has access to internal methods, properties and files of your tested application (that is, if it is an Open Application), you can call the internal methods and properties as methods and properties of the appropriate test objects. You can view these properties and methods in corresponding categories (Private, Public, RTTI, Debug Agent, Firefox, and so on). These methods and properties are not described in the TestComplete help file. For more information on them, please see the documentation for the development tools that was used to create the application under test.
