Is anyone using TestComplete v6 to do any web testing with ASP pages? I read in the "getting started" guide that the controls need to be HTML to be handled correctly, but unfortunately our pages are not simple HTML. Does anyone have a solid way to get TestComplete to recognize and handle ASP objects?
We are using ASP .NET for our eCommerce web application and I already have some libraried code that runs through the functional tests of a couple of areas of that store.
I would suggest that the first thing you do is use the Record function in TC 6 to record a few simple tasks in your site to see what is visible and what is not. Then use the object browser to do some closer examination of the various objects on your site to see what properties and such are visible.
From the browser's point of view, ASP controls are simple HTML objects, and TestComplete works with them in a regular way. However, you can encounter a recognition problem if indexes are used to address controls (this applies not only to ASP pages, but to any pages where objects do not have unique IDs assigned to them). If this problem arises, you can use possible solutions described here.
