Unlocking multiple container classes
How to unlock more than one container class at one time.
Unlocking container classes discusses how to unlock the class of a container control whose children you may need to access for your test. In some cases, a window may contain controls of more than one container class that you wish to unlock. Rather than repeat the unlocking process for each such class, TestArchitect allows you to select multiple container classes for unlocking at one time.
