.NET Web Forms Add-in

You can use the .NET Add-in to test .NET Web Forms user-interface objects (controls).

The following tables summarize basic information about the .NET Web Forms application support and how it relates to some commonly-used aspects of UFT.

General Information

Add-in Type

The .NET Add-in functions like a Web-based add-in when testing .NET Web Forms controls. Much of its functionality is the same as other Web-based add-ins.

Supported Environments

For details on supported .NET Web Forms environments, see the .NET Add-in section of the Unified Functional Testing Product Availability Matrix.

Test Object Methods and Properties

The .NET Add-in provides test objects, methods, and properties that can be used when testing objects in .NET Web Forms applications. For details, see the .NET Web Forms section of the UFT Object Model Reference for GUI Testing.

Important Information
  • When UFT learns .NET Web Forms objects, it does not learn the HTML elements that comprise the test objects. For example, when UFT learns the WbfGrid test object, the WbfGrid object is the bottommost object in the hierarchy, and the HTML elements used to create the grid's cells are not learned.

  • When you load the .NET Add-in, the Web event recording configurations designed for this add-in are loaded and are used whenever you record on a .NET Web Forms object. The.NET Web Forms Web event recording configurations do not affect the way UFT behaves when you record on other non-.NET Web Forms Web objects. For details, see the section on Event recording configuration.
