About Support

TestComplete can recognize Flex DataGrid controls in Flex applications. It provides special properties and methods that let you retrieve the controls data and simulate user actions on the controls (see below).

Supported Versions

Supported component versions: Adobe Flex ver. 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 4.0, 4.1, 4.5, 4.6; Apache Flex ver. 4.9 - 4.14.

Requirements

In order for TestComplete to be able to work with Flex DataGrid controls, the following requirements must be met:

  • You must have an active license for the TestComplete Web module.

  • The control’s class name must be specified in the Flex Controls | DataGrid group of your project’s Object Mapping options. By default, this group contains the following item:

    • mx.controls::DataGrid

    You can also command the test engine to recognize custom controls as Flex DataGrid controls. See below for information about this.

  • Support for the Flex DataGrid controls is implemented by the Adobe Flex Control Support plugin. This plugin is installed and enabled automatically as part of the TestComplete Web module.

    If you experience issues when working with the controls, select File > Install Extensions from the TestComplete main menu and check whether the plugin is active. (You can find the plugin in the Web group.) If the plugin is not available, run the TestComplete installation in the Repair mode.

Recognizing Custom Controls

To command TestComplete to recognize your custom controls as Flex DataGrid controls, open your project’s Object Mapping options and add the control’s class name to the Flex Controls | DataGrid group. The class name is specified by the control’s property. You can get the property value in the Object Browser panel. You can also choose the needed control from screen. For detailed information, see Object Mapping. Once the control is mapped, it gets all the properties, methods and actions specific to the Flex DataGrid control.

If the specified custom control does not fit the control’s type, then it may not properly respond to commands that TestComplete sends, so recording or playing back user actions over the tested control will cause errors.

Members

When testing Flex DataGrid controls, you can use properties and methods specific to these controls, as well as properties and methods that TestComplete applies to onscreen objects. For the full list of available properties and methods, see the following topics:
