TestComplete Does Not See Child Objects in DWM window

I'm trying to create test scripts for an application written in Delphi. Running on a VM using Windows 7 Ultimate.

The app opens a DWM dialog window which the Object Browser can see, but it can't see the text items or the Cancel button inside the dialog window. See the attached screenshot (SC1) for the properties as indicated by the object browser.

Screenshot SC2 shows an example of the dialog window itself. It doesn't look at all exotic to me.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

RE: TestComplete Does Not See Child Objects in DWM window

Just a couple things to check:

Make sure you have all plugins enabled and check to see if you possibly have a process filter enabled also.

Tools>Options>Current Project Properties>Open Applications>Process Filter set to Use All Processes and try again to enable extended properties/additional child objects.

Lastly you can try running Test Complete as Administrator.

Hi David,


 


In addition to Ryan's suggestion, I would recommend that you checked whether your tested application was prepared correctly for testing - Preparing Delphi Applications for Testing.
