I am wondering if there is anyone who is using the AQA automation software Test Complete with web applications using EXTJS? If there is anyone sucessfully using this combination I would be greatful to hear from you. We are having issues with the panel numbers changing which causes the values of the DOM objects to change between builds. I would like to know if anyone else is seeing this and if you have seen it did you find a workaround?
TestComplete will work with EXT if you can find a property that will remain consistant in your app. I found that the classname property is very descriptive and usually isn't changing. It is also key to note that adding properties to the mapped object acts as an 'AND' function to further create a unique identification for the object in question. I had success using InnerHTML and InnerText properties along with the classname to create uniqueness for the object being mapped.
I've been struggling with this for about 3 years and I have found that the problem is more manageable in Firefox and Safari browsers where the web page window is a single object. Then it's simply a matter mapping the page, delaying until all objects are viewable and then plotting the click points. It's kind of painful getting the points and it all becomes obsolete with any changes in the page but it can be done.
I'm still working on the IE dynamic. IE does try to map every object on the IE page and I have had problems with the appearance of a freeze while it remaps the page based on (I assume and has been tentatively confirmed by AQA) changes created by a button click.

Reason: confusing syntax
I am currently evaluating the current release of TestComplete and running into many of the issue listed on this thread. Can you provide some detail how to overcome the trouble with dynamic objects ? we also use Ozone Widget Framework in addition to Ext JS.
