Kendo UI Support

Through list of Controls Supported by TC and other Posts in this Forum , i understand that Kendo UI controls are not supported. 

 

When I tried to record script on Application built using Kendo control , events are not recognised properly and generates very generic events and actions. 

I tried to record playback same using UFT ( by HP ) and it works smoothly, so it is proven that Kendo UI is not supported by TC ...

 

Is there any work-around other than mapping to something like Kendo UI controls ? 

 

Also , Is there any timeline when Kendo controls will be supported ?

Re: Kendo UI Support

What happens with an Object Spy against a Kendo UI control?  Can you actually spy the control?  If so, you MIGHT be able to access native object properties and methods and still use it.  By default, recording won't use these native properties and methods so you'd have to construct your own manipulation of these objects (had to do so myself a few years ago when we needed support for TMS objects that weren't supported).  

So, yes, there IS a workaround, but you'll have to do some work in order to support it.  Honestly, mapping the Kendo UI controls to something pre-existing is probably the EASIEST way for the short term.  There are already Telerik controls supported so you might be able to find something to map to.

As for supporting Kendo UI... You can request as a feature request at https://community.smartbear.com/t5/TestComplete-Feature-Requests/idb-p/TestXCompleteFeatureRequests and request folks to vote it up.  You can also try contacting customer service directly with a feature request at https://support.smartbear.com/message/?prod=TestComplete and select "Product Enhancement Request" in the drop down.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Re: Kendo UI Support

The following page lists all supported control technologies.
https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/general-info/supported-technologies/controls/index.h...

 

As far as I can tell, Kendo UI has not been added explicitly.

 

Kendo UI IS Angular, though... and Angular is supported.  So, you may be able to use Kendo but rework things with object mapping.

Re: Kendo UI Support

Hi,

 

As stated by Robert (@tristaanogre) :

Kendo UI IS Angular

which means that Kendo UI is supported for many years already.

Ages old excellent explanation by Lino Tadros (@LinoTadros😞

https://community.smartbear.com/t5/TestComplete-Functional-Web/TestComplete-9-3-Does-it-support-kend...

 

and some other inspired thread:

P.S. As Kendo UI is Angular-based, consider to use Custom Attributes functionality introduced in TC 12.60: https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/general-info/whats-new.html#web-testing-improvements
