Hi sir,

The swfconfig.xml is the configuration file which contains all the mapping information for QTP to recognize Syncfusion controls.


QTP is not recognizing syncfusion controls

1)Make sure that the installed Essential studio version and Essential QTP add-on version are same.

2) Copy the swfconfig.xml  file from the location ‘{Installed location of Essential QTP Add-On}\Config\<version-2.0, 3.5, or 4.0>\swfconfig.xml,’ to the following location <QuickTest Professional Installation Path>\dat

Restart the machine once the mentioned configuration has been done.

Please refer to the links for further details:



3) Open HP QTP and record the application.

Please let us know your current version, if you need any further help on this.

Please  let me know if you are facing the same issue still.
