About Rational Robot Support for Delphi
With Rational Robot, you get comprehensive support for testing your Delphi
applications. With its Object Testing technology, Robot examines data and
properties that are not visible to the user. Robot uses Object-Oriented Recording to
recognize a Delphi component by its internal name.
Use Robot to test Delphi and third-party components, including:
Visual Component Library (VCL) components
Win 32 controls
ActiveX controls
Data-aware components
Nonvisual components
Internet-enabled controls
Visual inheritance forms
NOTE: Robot supports the testing of applications built with Delphi 3.0, 4.0, and
5.0 for Windows NT, Windows Me, Windows 2000, and Windows 98.
