Can I use on-screen action on iOS notification dialog sheet in TestComplete?



I have an issue with creating properly my first test of iOS application, because when I start app, I can see first screen of my application with iOS dialog sheet:


But TestComplete doesn't show me the exact screen which I have on my phone.


The question is - Can Testcomplete somehow recognize iOS dialog sheets? Can I use on them on-screen action since this is also part of my application?


Thanks in advice.

Kind regards,

Yes and TestComplete can recognize all objects from my application. The issue is, that when the dialog sheet shows up, then I can't see screen of my phone (with application and dialog sheet on it) in "Show Mobile Screen" option.

After I close dialog sheet I can see screen with application again.

Hi Adam,


This screen seems to be a kind of Windows UAC dialog that can't be processed by TestComplete. I seem to remember that there was a thread here that was about setting required permissions before the tested application starts in order to avoid dialogs like yours. The bad news is that I don't remember if this article was for Android, iOS or both. Another bad news is that I don't have the link at hand now. I will try to search for it but not earlier than on Monday, sorry for that.


Update: Found the thread:

It is for Android, but I wish something similar exists for iOS as well...

Thanks for that, it's nice to hear that this is possible. I would love to know similar solution for iOS.
