Can I write Rational Robo scripts to test Prof-UI components? If not, which software do you recommend?

You can use any automated test systems with Prof-UIS programs, but please note the following:

1) Simple common controls provided with Prof-UIS can be tested in the same way as original Win32 common controls.

2) The popup menus in Prof-UIS are not based on Win32 popup menus. Our menus are windows written from scratch and they cannot be tested using menu access APIs provided by automated testing software. Please use testing APIs for emulation of mouse movements, mouse clicks and keyboard events to test menu item invocations.

3) Prof-UIS toolbars are not based on Win32 toolbar common controls. They are also windows written from scratch and you need to emulate mouse movements and clicks for testing them.

4) Prof-UIS provides a .set of advanced controls which are absolutely not related to standard common controls: ribbons, resizable control bars, page navigator, page container, tab page container, color/date-time/undo-redo picker controls and same popup menus, image editor control and icon editor dialog, color selection dialog, various grid controls. All these controls are also can be used in automated testing and via mouse/keyboard input emulation APIs only.
