My application uses XamDataGrid and Date Picker controls of Infragistics.
I found some issue in automating those controls using QTP.
So I downloaded a trial version of "Test Advantage for Windows (HP) 2008" in my machine.
But still QTP couldnt identify or automate those controls.
Please help me if I am missing something here.
Some details about my application:
Application is developed in WPF
We do not currently have a version of TestAdvantage usable to automate testing of our WPF toolset. Current versions of TestAdvantage are for testing our Windows Forms controls only.
I am hoping there is now a solution where there was not one last year.
Could you reply back and let me know if QTP 9.5 has an Infragistic plug-in available?
If not, what is the ETA?
Is there a Beta?
NetAdvantage WinForms is a separate product for a different platform then our NetAdvantage WPF controls. As such the TestAdvantage for WinForms which is intended to work with our WinForms controls, was not intended for our WPF Controls. Currently, as of QuickTest Professional 10, while QTP has support for basic WPF controls, they have not created an extensibility kit to allow third party vendors such as ourselves to create proxies for WPF controls. As such we are unable to support our testing of our WPF controls with QuickTest Professional.
Can't even QTP 9.5 .Net extensibility kit for custom servers support WPF Infragistic controls?
While WPF inherently a part of .NET. The QuickTest Professional .NET extensibility kit, does not include support for all of .NET. At the moment, it only supports Windows Forms controls, ie, controls that inherit from System.Windows.Forms.Control. While WPF is a Rich Client platform similar to Windows Forms, it is vastly different in architecture, least of which being, each control inherits for a System.Windows.Controls.Control. As such they need to develop a new extensibility kit specifically to allow others to support third party controls via their software. While they have added support for the base WPF controls, as of QuickTest Professional 10.0, they have not created a viable extensibility kit.
I hope this clears up any confusion on the matter,
Any update from HP side on this in 2010?
As of today, nothing new has been released from HP in the way of a WPF extensibility kit.
Is there any other tool which has full support to Automation of WPF objects?
To my knowledge, no there is no tool tha thas full support for automation of WPF objects.
