Default Project Properties - Silverlight Options

Applies to TestComplete 15.59, last modified on November 30, 2023

The Open Applications | Silverlight group of the default project properties specify the default values for the Silverlight options of newly created TestComplete projects. These options affect how TestComplete works with Silverlight application objects. Note that these options are available only if the Silverlight Application Support plugin is installed in TestComplete.

To view or modify the default Silverlight options:

  • Select Tools | Default Project Properties from the main menu of TestComplete. The Default Project Properties dialog will open.

  • Select Project | Open Applications| Silverlight from the tree displayed on the left of the dialog.

You can change the following option:

  • Extended Silverlight object tree -- Specifies how TestComplete presents the object hierarchy in Silverlight applications exposed by the Silverlight Application Support plugin. If the setting is enabled, the object tree includes all Silverlight objects inherited from the System.Windows.Controls.Control class. If the setting is disabled (default), the object tree contains only those objects which the test engine considers as important for testing. This simplifies the object tree and improves TestComplete performance.

    This option affects how TestComplete records object names and addresses objects in Silverlight applications during playback. So, tests created with this option enabled may not play back correctly when the option is disabled, and vice versa.

To save the changes you have made, press OK. Cancel will close the dialog discarding any changes.
