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.

About Support

TestComplete can recognize jQuery UI Tabs controls in web 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: jQuery UI version 1.8.13 - 1.8.20, 1.9.2, 1.10.2 - 1.10.4, 1.11.1, 1.11.2, and 1.11.4.


Support for the jQuery UI Tabs controls is implemented by the jQuery UI 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.


When testing jQuery UI Tabs 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:
