|Flash Player has reached end of life on December 31, 2020. Support for Flash and Flex applications is now deprecated in TestComplete and will be removed in a future release.|
|Information in this topic applies only to web tests that implement the classic approach. In cross-platform web tests, TestComplete recognizes third-party controls as standard web controls.|
TestComplete can recognize Spark DropDownList 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).
Instances of the following classes and their descendants are recognized by TestComplete as Spark DropDownList controls:
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.
Support for the Spark DropDownList controls is implemented by the Web Testing 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
If the class of your custom control is the descendant of the class specified above, TestComplete recognizes your control as the Spark DropDownList automatically.
When testing Spark DropDownList 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:
