Step-by-Step Instructions for Supporting Custom Delphi Controls

This section guides you through the process of creating a UFT Delphi Add-in Extensibility toolkit support set.

Note: In some cases, it is sufficient to map your custom control to an existing Delphi test object class. In this case, create and deploy the toolkit configuration file as described in the procedure below, but compile the application you are testing with the MicDelphiAgent.pas module, as described in the Delphi section of the Micro Focus Unified Functional Testing Add-ins Guide.

In other cases, mapping the custom control to an existing test object class does not provide adequate support, even though the test object class includes all of the necessary test object methods and identification properties. In these cases, you do not need to create a new test object class to support the custom control (steps 3 and 4), but you do need to create a Delphi extensibility unit that supports the test object methods and properties (steps 6 to 9).

To create the support set for your custom control:
