About Supported MooTools Controls

TestLeft can work with any web control via the control’s graphical user interface displayed in a web browser, no matter how the control is implemented on the server side. You can test web applications that use controls implemented by using various technologies and frameworks, including MooTools.

In addition, TestLeft provides extended support for most of MooTools controls. It automatically associates them with the appropriate interfaces that extend the control functionality with 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.


To implement support for the MooTools controls, apply an accessibility patch to the MooTools controls’ source code.

Patches for supported versions of MooTools controls are shipped with TestLeft. By default, they reside in the <TestLeft 15>\Open Apps\WebControls folder. To apply a needed patch to the control source code use the following instructions:

  1. Follow the link to download an archive containing the free Patch utility.

  2. Extract the patch.exe executable file and place it in the root directory of the controls’ source library (the directory that contains the mootools-more-More-NNN.js file, NNN is your MooTools version).

  3. Copy the patch file corresponding to your MooTools version from the <TestLeft15>\Open Apps\WebControls folder to the same root folder, in which you have placed the patch.exe file.

  4. Apply the patch by executing the following command line:

    patch -p0 --binary < mootools-more-NNN.diff

    Where NNN is your MooTools version:, 1.5.1, 1.5.2, 1.6.0.

Supported Browser Versions

TestLeft supports testing of MooTools controls in web applications displayed in the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer ver. 11.

    Note: The non-Chromium version of Edge is not supported.
