Welcome to OpenText UFT One .NET Add-in Extensibility

OpenText UFT One .NET Add-in Extensibility is an SDK (Software Development Kit) package that enables you to support testing applications that use third-party and custom .NET Windows Forms controls that are not supported by default by the UFT One .NET Add-in.

About the UFT One .NET Add-in Extensibility SDK

The UFT One .NET Add-in Extensibility SDK installation provides the following:

  • An API that enables you to extend the UFT One .NET Add-in to support custom .NET Windows Forms controls.

  • Custom Server C# and Visual Basic project templates for Microsoft Visual Studio.

    Each Custom Server template provides a framework of blank code, some sample code, and the UFT One project references required to build a custom server.

    Note: For a list of supported Microsoft Visual Studio versions, see the UFT One Support Matrix.

  • The wizard that runs when the Custom Server template is selected to create a new project. The wizard simplifies setting up a Microsoft Visual Studio project to create a Custom Server .NET DLL using .NET Add-in Extensibility. For more information, see Using a .NET DLL to Extend Support for a Custom Control.

  • The .NET Add-in Windows Forms Extensibility Help, which includes the following:

    • A developer guide, including a step-by-step tutorial in which you develop support for a sample custom control.

    • An API Reference.

    • The .NET Add-in Extensibility Configuration Schema Help.

    • The .NET Add-in Extensibility Control Definition Schema Help.

    • The UFT One Test Object Schema Help.

  • A sample .NET Add-in Extensibility support set that extends UFT One GUI testing support for the SandBar toolbar custom control.
