Control Click using cordinates

How to click on a control using coordinates .

In codedui we get the control .Then do Mouse.click(new point(control.x,control.Y).

Is there a similar method in testcomplete .

  • Hi,

     

    In TestComplete You are able to map Your control into NameMapping Repository and use .Click() method on it without coordinates.

     

    example:

     

    button.Click()

     

    You can also refer to this object by using Sys. object

     

    Spy object -> add it into nameMapping repository -> use its properties and methods.

    Wamboo has the right steps.  In TestComplete, you have the more accurate way of addressing the objects by name.  Coordinates can change from machine to machine or even on one machine if the setup or page is changed.  Using the name will make your tests much more accurate and portable.
