Using the .NET Add-in Extensibility Samples

The .NET Add-in Extensibility SDK provides a sample support set to help you learn about .NET Add-in Extensibility. The toolkit support set files are installed in the <UFT .NET Add-in Extensibility SDK installation folder>\samples\WinFormsExtSample folder. You can study the content of these files to gain a better understanding of how to develop your own toolkit support sets.

The sample support set extends UFT support for the SandBar custom .NET Windows Forms control. The custom server provided in this sample is similar to the one you create in Tutorial: Complex Custom .NET Windows Forms Control.

The SandbarSample.sln solution file located in the WinFormsExtSample folder includes a configuration file and a fully implemented custom server that supports the SandBar control. The SandBarCustomServer implementation is provided in C# and in Visual Basic, in separate projects within the solution (SandbarCustomServer and VBSandbarCustomServer). In addition, the SandbarSample solution includes a sample .NET Windows Forms application that uses the SandBar toolbar control (SandbarTestApp).

To learn how extensibility can affect UFT's interaction with custom controls, create and run a UFT GUI test on the sample application before and after deploying the sample toolkit support set to UFT.
