I have been using Test complete to automate entire application by using ie. Now I have been asked to perform cross browser testing in Chrome and IE. But objects mapped using IE are having different properties in Chrome. Especially the images (Buttons)
Could you please help me to come over this issue ?
NameMapping has a feature called "Configurations" where you can tell the tool to use a different set of properties/values to identify the same components. See https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/testing-with/object-identification/name-mapping/conf...
Another option would be to use Conditional Mapping which would allow you to use different properties for the same object with "OR" logic. See https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/testing-with/object-identification/name-mapping/mana...
Thank you Robert.
But in this case I would have to make changes to every effected objects of name mapping file.
Is there any configuration in Test complete or Chrome plug-in, where in I could access same property values as IE ?
No configurations in TestComplete, no. There is a Chrome extension to run applications in an IE Tab... but that defeats the purpose of the cross-browser testing effort because it basically makes a Chrome tab act like the IE browser... and that's not what you want.
honestly, your best bet is to go through the objects that are giving you the issue and make the necessary corrections.
