Passing values to LabVIEW controls


We are working on TestComplete and LabVIEW to test our embeded product,
here TC script is written to access object data from application X and then pass
values to LabVIEW controls. I was trying to use Object spy -->Drag option in
TestComplete to access LabVIEW control to display data read from
application X but only could able to access outer menu in LabVIEW window
(i mean maximize, minimize and close) and its not able access LabVIEW controls or

Below code example when i access control in comunicator application using Object Spy -->Drag option in TC.

Sys.Process("communicator").Window("#32770", "Test Inputs", 1).Window("Static", "", 1)

Below code example when i access control in LabVIEW application using Object spy -->Drag
option in TC (its not able to access controls or indicators in LabVIEW window)

Sys.Process("LabVIEW").Window("LVDChild", "TEST", 3)

Appreciate your help to resolve this problem.

Hi Venkateswaran,

Sorry for the delayed reply.

TestComplete currently doesn't support LabVIEW-based applications. We have an existing feature request for LabVIEW support, and I've increased its rating based on your post.

At the moment, you might be able to get a more detailed object hierarchy using supplementary object identification techniques such as MSAA, UI Automation, Text Recognition or OCR. You can also try other automation techniques described in the following article:
