About Developing WPF or Silverlight Add-in Extensibility Toolkit Support Sets

Implement WPF and Silverlight Add-in Extensibility in C# using a supported version of Microsoft Visual Studio. (For a list of supported Microsoft Visual Studio versions, see the Micro Focus UFT One Support Matrix.

UFT One 2022 and later: Following the discontinuance of the Silverlight development framework, UFT One no longer supports the Silverlight Add-in out of the box.

If you need to use and extend the Silverlight Add-in, contact Micro Focus Support.

  • Visual Studio is required only to develop the support set, not to use it.

  • To develop Silverlight Add-in Extensibility, you must have the Microsoft Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio installed.

  • UFT One is required only to run and test your support set, not to develop it.

A toolkit, or an environment, is a set of controls for which you want to provide support in one package.

A toolkit support set consists of:

  • A Test Object Configuration XML File. In this file, new test object types are defined. For details, see The Test Object Configuration XML File.

  • A toolkit configuration file. In this file, WPF or Silverlight control types are mapped to test object types (classes) and to the custom servers that implement their record and run logic. For details on the structure and syntax of this file, see the Toolkit Configuration Schema.

  • .Net DLLs containing the implementation of custom servers. For details, see Custom Servers.

  • Icon and Help files (Optional).

    The icon files contain icons used in UFT One to represent your test object classes. (Supported file types: .ico, .exe, .dll)

    The Help files are used for context-sensitive Help for your test object classes and their methods and properties. (Supported file type: .chm)
