What's New in UFT Developer 2023

This topic describes the new features and enhancements available in UFT Developer 2023.

UIA Pro (Technical Preview)

UFT Developer's new UIA Pro add-in supports testing Windows-based applications that have implemented UI Automation provider interfaces. This can help you test applications and objects that are not otherwise identified by UFT Developer.

You can use UIA Pro in JavaScript and C# tests. Create your test object descriptions using the UIA Pro mode in OIC, or by editing your test manually. Refer to the JavaScript and .NET SDK references for more information.

Note: If you want to use UFT Developer on a machine that has UFT One installed as well, you need to open UFT One before UFT Developer for UIA Pro to work.

See UI Automation in UFT Developer (tech preview).
