Extensibility Accelerator at a Glance

Extensibility Accelerator for Functional Testing is a Visual Studio-like IDE that facilitates the design, development, and deployment of Web Add-in Extensibility toolkit support sets.

You develop a toolkit support set in an extensibility project. The main Extensibility Accelerator functionalities are available only when you have a project open. You can open only one project at a time.

This section introduces the Extensibility Accelerator window and lists the main areas in comprises and how you can use them.

You can customize the appearance of this window by moving and docking the windows it contains and by customizing toolbars, in the same ways as you would in Visual Studio.

Note: If your computer's display is set to the Windows Classic style, the colors and appearance of some tabs will differ from the intended design.

If you are working in Windows 8, you can access program files previous accessible from the Start menu in the Windows 8 Start screen. UFT Documentation and other files are accessible in Windows 8 from the Apps screen.
