We have application which uses Infragistics – 2.0.5001.36 controls, Just wanted to check, Is there any way to automate that application which has these controls. Currently We are unable to automate it with Coded UI.
Just wanted to check if the automation support is available for Infragistics – 2.0.5001.36 controls or not.
The controls are of type: Tree View, Menu
What platform are the control on? What product are they part of?
The Platform is VB6, and it's our Internal legacy application.
I just wanted to check if the controls are automatable or not using Microsoft UIAutomation API.
The UI Automation that Coded UI Test uses is newer than the VB 6 controls and as such they don't support the UI Automation that Coded UI Test needs so it is expected that you will not be able to automate testing with these controls using Coded UI Test.
Let me know if you have any questions with this matter.
Hi Alan Halama,
Thanks for your information, I am really impressed with your prompt response.
Is there any other tool at your end to automate the mentioned application (VB 6 + Infragistics – 2.0.5001.36 Controls), If it's available then, I'll be glad to know.
As per my understanding and information, there is one tool named TestStack White - https://github.com/TestStack/White
Will it able to help?
Please let me know your comments.
Even when the controls were maintained Infragistics didn't provide any tools for automation of the VB6 controls and I am not sure what would work well. You could test other testing tools on your own to see if is able to record/replay actions on the VB6 controls and allows automating your tests.
I have never looked at TestStack White so I don't know if this will help you. Some others that you could look into as well are HP Quick Test Professional and IBM Rational Functional Tester as they may give you enough functionality to automate your application though again I haven't tested these with the VB6 controls and don't know how well they will work.
Let me know if I may be of further assistance.
