Analyzing Custom Controls and Mapping Them to Test Objects

When you develop .NET Add-in Extensibility, you map custom .NET Windows Forms controls to existing UFT .NET Add-in test object classes and to Custom Servers that you develop.

The first mapping determines the test object class that UFT uses to represent the custom control. The second specifies the Custom Server to use. The Custom Server extends the functionality of the test object that is used for the control to match the control's functionality.

If UFT recognizes a .NET control out-of-the-box, and uses a .NET add-in test object other than SwfObject to represent it (for example SwfEdit or SwfList), then you cannot map this control to any other test object type. However, you can still map it to a Custom Server and extend the test object functionality.
