Michael Germann / Wednesday, May 6, 2015

The primary focus for Infragistics Test Automation is to offer you peace of mind. Such that when you develop with our controls, your teams can seamlessly implement automated testing of the user interface (UI) to confidently produce higher-quality releases. IG Test Automation, currently supports our Windows Forms controls via HP’s Unified Functional Testing (UFT) and IBM’s Rational Functional Tester (RFT).  We also support our WPF controls via HP’s UFT.

As IG Test Automation’s purpose is to automate tests of the UI of applications using IG controls, this what’s new will start off with the new controls. I will follow with changes in existing controls that had changes that would affect how the UI behaved, lastly I’ll list any bug fixes that were implemented this cycle.

New Infragistics Controls


IG WPF’s XamTreeGrid

The xamTreeGrid control is the latest addition to the Data Presenter family of controls. It arranges data in a tree grid layout. Essentially the control is a xamDataPresenter that implements a single view (a tree view) which cannot by dynamically switched.
