I am trying to support our QA department which uses QTP for automation testing. QTP is failing miserably at recognizing custom item renderers for Spark List (and DataGroup too). There is nothing special going on in the custom item renderer. There is a basic Group layout with some labels and buttons. I would like to be able to click on a button inside the item renderer; but, QTP sees the whole item renderer as a SparkListLabel. QTP is not able to recognize anything inside the item renderer.
I know there are custom automation delegates that need to be created for some components; but this is basic layout inside an ItemRenderer. I would expect that to work with out creating custom automation classes to support it.
