Good to hear from you. Judging on recent threads in this forum, I was
not sure if this was the right place to raise this subject.
Here is my problem. I am working on developing the framework for
testing GUIs. The objective is to cover as many types as possible, MS
apps, Java apps, browser based...
I am evaluating some commercially available tools and run into problem
which reduces to one common thing. The tools are not capable to drill
down to the bottom of the object hierarchy. For example, if I want to
perform clicks on the icons in toolbar all I see is a toolbar itself.
There is no fine structure of it, meaning that none of the buttons in
the toolbar (eg. New, Open, Close, Print etc in Notepad++ application)
are seen as separate objects.
I tried some Microsoft tools, Inspect32, Spy++ which are parts of
Active Accessibility and UI Automation but with no much improvement.
Is there a way to dissect the object on the screen to see the entire
widget hierarchy along with their properties?
