We are in the process of reviewing the QuickTest Professional extensibility kit for WPF to see if we can implement custom proxies for our NetAdvantage for WPF controls. We are still in the early stages and are working with HP to resolve some of the hurdles that we came across. But we would like to hear from those that are utilizing the NetAdavantage for WPF controls and looking to test them to see what controls they are using, what specific features of those controls they are most interested in, and if there are any special means of implementation they are using for those controls so that we can better meet your use case scenarios out of the box. I am opening this thread to any suggestions or requests, and if you have any samples of your implementation that we can test against it would greatly aid us in meeting your requests. Due to the limitations of the forums though samples should be code files only, zip compressed, requiring just inbox and Infragistics DLLs. If all goes well we are looking at a CTP release for versions of 9.2 forward for Q2 of 2011, albeit no dates are in stone yet. All future announcements will posted on these forums.
Thanks for the quick reply and the dedicated thread. At this point would you happen to know if both netadvantage WPF products ("Win Client" and/or "Data Visualization") will be supported?
While we will be looking into the Data Visualization support as well, at the moment we are looking primarily into the Win Client product line. That is not saying that they won't make it into the CTP, just that at the moment we are primarily looking into Win Client.
I am using QTP 10.0 for automating a WPF based application which has infragistics 10.2 controls.
I have taken the testadvantage 10.2 addin for it.
But its unable to identify the XamTabControl objects.
Also when i try to add checkbox objects in the Object Repository, QTP just hangs although it recognises the objects sucessfully.
I am not sure by how you stated in the post or not, but let me clarify, the XamTabControl is a NetAdvantage WPF control. By basic definition our control sets are custom controls, that differ from the default inbox controls that Microsoft offers. QuickTest Professional, for the most part, has had the policy that by default they will only definitely support inbox Microsoft controls, but they do offer the ability to create custom proxies for custom controls. As stated at the start of this thread there currently are no proxies available for the NetAdvantage WPF controls yet, although we are looking into creating them. As such, it is expected that currently there are limited ways to record\replay against our NetAdvantage WPF controls, and any default support that you may get against custom controls is not expected or supported by either HP or Infragistics.
That being said, as this thread is about letting us know what controls that you are using and what you may want us to build proxies for, I will make sure to add the NA 10.2 XamTabControl to the list of controls to make sure is supported in our first CTP.
I am using QTP 10.0 with TestAdvantage 10.2 for automation.
Recently DEV team has started designing new screens using WPF Data Visulaization.From this thread I understand that currently there is no test support available for WPF Data VisulaizationCan you please let me know the latest update on this?
If Infragistics is in process of proving this support, can you provide any interim patch/build to testmy application?
We will be starting initial beta testing of some of the proxies shortly. Specifically we would be looking to test the Editors, and rudimentary support of the DataPresenters (XamDataGrid, XamDataCarousel, XamDataPresenter). If you would be interested, contact me through this site directly, and our product manager will likely contact you when we are ready begin beta testing the proxies. Also, be sure to include your contact and company information if applicable, as well as the version of NetAdvantage for WPF that you will be testing against.
I am working on automating a Silverlight (Version 4) application for NewYork Life where the development team is using NetAdvantage 10.3 for the custom controls like XamDataGrid. I will be more happy if you can add me to your beta testing group and i can beta test proxies on both QTP 10 and QTP 11.
Please let me me know when it is available for Beta.

I think there is a bit of misunderstanding, the beta is for NetAdvantage for WPF, not for Silverlight. If you are interested we would be happy to add you to the Beta for it, but with the understanding again that the WPF proxies will not work for the automation of Silverlight controls.
Thanks for your quick reply, our developers are using NetAdvantage for Silver light application(controls like XamDataGrid), I beleive you have some solution for this as well.
