Supported Microsoft Controls

Applies to TestLeft 15.10, last modified on November 16, 2021

TestLeft can simulate user actions and access internal properties and methods of various Microsoft controls. You can also command your tests to recognize your custom controls as Microsoft controls to simulate user actions against them.

About Supported Microsoft Controls

TestLeft can simulate user actions against any Microsoft control via graphical user interface. In addition, TestLeft provides extended support for the most of Microsoft controls.

In your tests, you can cast these controls to appropriate interfaces that extend the control’s functionality with a number of additional methods and properties. Use those methods and properties to simulate various user actions over the controls, for example, select individual items or retrieve item text.

Recognizing Custom Controls

To command TestLeft to recognize your custom controls as Microsoft controls, cast your control to the interface of the appropriate type.

If your control does not fit the type of the control, for which the interface provides support, it may improperly respond to commands that TestLeft will send, and simulating user actions against your control may cause errors.
