We are automating the Web Based Termainal Emulator in IE,Edge and Chrome browsers using test complete.
As it is a product based build testing would like to test the new Features such as color Mapping, Key mapping etc.
We are not able to verify the colors that have mapped to the text in the Terminal Emulator green screens. Kindly help us to resolve this issue in Testcomplete.

> using HTML5 canvas
Unless Support provides you with a solution/workaround (which I would really appreciate if you share here), it is my opinion that end-to-end functional automation is barely possible for canvas. The only thing that you can try is to talk to Development and discuss what functions/data structures on the page can be called/examined to check this or that functionality. I.e. you might be able to reliably automate integration/grey-box tests, but not GUI-oriented functional tests from the end-user point of view.
No. Im not able to even key in the values based on the row,column position in the green screen as its identified as a single object like Frame,Canvas.
Even I want a solution to automate the green screens without simply recording . If there is any click option works with row , column wise in green screen would be useful.
As my product is a web based terminal emulator need a solution to automate in a best way using Testcomplete.
Recording is a useful tool to determine how TestComplete is actually looking at your application. I wouldn't use it for the whole test but I frequently use it for beginning a framework. Don't automatically discount it!
You might take a look at the Advanced options in the Object Spy for the frame and see if any of those values will let you drill down to the text.
Other than that, I suggest you contact Support directly with your question. Here's the link: https://support.smartbear.com/message/?prod=TestComplete

> it shows only as frame or canvas object.
If emulator's green screen is displayed using canvas, then there is no way to automate it with regular means provided by TestComplete.
This is because everything on canvas is rendered via page scripting and does not provide any internal structure that can be processed by the browser/TestComplete.
I will really appreciate it if you let us know the solution suggested by Support (if any).
Thank you for your response. I didn't get any solution yet also support team is also not providing any fruitful solution.
Feeling worse as I have tried as much I can 😞
