The application we are using is a windows desktop application with web controls on which style sheets are applied. We tried to use QTP and Winrunner to automate the process of testing for it, but both of these tool do not recognise the objects in this application.
Do we have to use any add-ins so that these tools can be used in our application?
We are evaluating the tool which we can use with our application.
Hi, From QTP help ...
Working with AOL and Applications with Embedded Web Browser Controls
To record and run tests or components on AOL or an application with embedded Web browser controls:
make sure the ActiveX Add-in is loaded
select Record and run tests on any open Web browser in the Record and Run Settings dialog box
make sure AOL or the application is opened after QuickTest
For more information on browser settings, see Recording a Test or Component.
make sure that you start QTP before you start the AUT , also make sure you have only one browser open.
after doing the above try to spy on any object
if you aren't getting any results then I recommedn you do clean installation

From "Top 10 Stupid Comments from Developers".
we are using our own custom controls in the application
I contacted MI for this issue, they said QTP won't recognise Custom controls. so the asked to use Low level recording/ Virtual Objects
i think both options not very much useful for us
