This is to the Infragistics team.
Our application was developed using Wpf Infragistics 9.1 version and QTP was about to recognise the WpfEdit control in a WpfGrid container... now our developement have upgraded to Wpf Infragistics 9.2 which screws up QTP's ability to recognise the objects.
Now when I spy the same WpfEdit box QTP identifies the WpfWindow and nothing else.
Could someone tell me, does this 9.2 version have any kind of backward compatibility.
I have not used Test-Advantage addin but still QTP used to work fine.
Currently there is no TestAdvantage for WPF product to support NetAdvantage for WPF. As to change in behavior between 2009 Volume 1 and 2009 Volume 2 as to how it interacts with QuickTest Professional, that I am not sure. You may need to either check on the NetAdvantage for WPF forum, or with HP. But as it stands I do not believe NetAdvantage for WPF is stated to be supported by QuickTest Professional.
Thanks you very much for your detailed answer. Could you please tell me if there are any other automation tools which support XAMDockManager Panel, because QTP doesn't get past this control.
Example : when a WpfButton is placed on WpfWindow ewvery things fine and QTP can recognise all the object.
As soon as a XamDockManager is comes into picture, QTP does not recognise any objects.
Could you please let us know if there is any other automation tool with TestAdvantage Add In which can handle this issue.
We are currently looking into the options of what testing software supports custom WPF controls like our NetAdvantage WPF suite. To my knowledge there is currently no testing software package that offers solid support for our WPF controls as is, so we are looking into the possibility of creating a TestAdvantage suite specifically designed to support them.
Is there any vision when this will be available?
While yes you would require custom support for testing WPF applications using NetAdvantage for WPF to test an application with QuickTest Professional. At this moment there is no QTP extensibility kit for WPF to allow for custom support. We are currently reviewing all possibilities for a testing platform to support NetAdvantage for WPF. So at this moment we cannot speculate as to when it will be available.
