How to find the shadow object in DOM

Kindly help me out with the code snippet for finding the shadow DOM object.


I tried using the ContentDocument but it doesn't work out with me. please look into the attachment for more information. 


var outer = panel.contentDocument.Script('return arguments[0].shadowRoot','my-sequence-grid');

  • That's new information...and not necessarily related to the specifics of finding objects via the DOM.  In that other thread, I suggested the user open a support issue directly with SmartBear.  Have you attempted the same?

    How does it show in the TestComplete Object Spy when you investigate the component in question?  How does your application display in general in the Object Browser? What are you trying to achieve with this code automation code you're trying to write?

      My application is web application.It doesn't recognize the object using the object spy basically i am working with wijimo grid 5.0 and need to work with the cell but using the object spy i not able to find the grid cell because it comes under the shadow root.


      In Screenshot, it is mention id = grid-part, when i try to find the object using object spy or event using the "findchildbyxpath"  test complete not allowing me to work with the object.
