Are there some Flex controls without test automation support? We have been having issues with TabNavigator. Although the application is compiled with automation libraries, our testing tool is not able to recognize TabNavigator. We use a tool called "Compuware TestPartner" and it works fine with the other Flex controls. When we checked with compuware, they suggested that TabNavigator is not built with automation support.
We want to find if there are other controls with the similar issue.
Has anyone faced this issue?
Please let us know.
TabNavigator is automation-ready. By default it will not appear in automation hierarchy because it has showInAutomationHierarchy set to false (as are many other containers derived from Container). Set showInAutomationHierarchy to true in your application and it will be recognized by automation tool (provided that the tool correctly honors the setting).
AFAIK all built-in Flex controls are automation-ready.
Thanks riatest. We will try that.
