How to Add Support for a Custom Control

This task describes how to add support for a single type of custom control to an existing toolkit support set.

For instructions on creating a toolkit support set, see How to Create Support for a Custom Toolkit.

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.

Tip: To create your Add-in Extensibility files, use the project template that the WPF and Silverlight Add-in Extensibility SDK installs on Visual Studio:

UFT One 2022 or later: The template is named UFT WPF Custom Support

UFT One 2021 R1 or earlier: The templates are named UFT WPF CustomServer and UFT Silverlight CustomServer.

Using this template helps set up the XML data and the custom server class that you need to develop to support your custom control, simplifying the first three steps in the task described below. For details, see WPF/Silverlight Custom Support Setup Dialog Box (in Microsoft Visual Studio).

If necessary, you can move the XML data and custom server class that you create using the template into an existing toolkit support set. Copy the information from the XML files into the XML files of the existing toolkit support set, and copy the custom server .cs file into the existing Visual Studio WPF or Silverlight Add-in Extensibility project.
