Default Project Properties - UI Automation Options

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on June 12, 2024

The Open Applications | UI Automation options group of the default project properties includes options that let you specify UI Automation settings that will be used for new TestComplete projects. These settings are available only if the UI Automation Support plugin is installed in TestComplete.

To view or change these default options, select Tools | Default Project Properties from the main menu of TestComplete and then choose Project | Open Applications | UI Automation from the tree on the left of the ensuing Default Project Properties dialog.

You can change the following option --

  • List of accepted windows - Holds a list of window class names. For windows, whose class names are mentioned in this list, TestComplete will provide additional properties and methods exposed through the UI Automation Support plugin. The values mentioned in this list will be assigned to the UI Automation options of a new project when it is created. You can then modify them on the Properties page of your project editor (see Project Properties - UI Automation Options).

    TestComplete uses the default UI Automation settings properties to display window properties in the Object Browser when there is no open project.

    To add a new window class name to the list, click Add and then specify the desired class name. Note that you can use wildcards (* and ?) in window class names.

    To modify an existing window class name, click it twice (not double-click) or press F2.

    To remove the selected window class name from the list, click Remove.

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