Tag Archives: Coded UI
This blog shortly introduces a new plug-in tool for Coded UI. Coded UI is the automation testing tool which is included in Visio Studio 2010 and is becoming more and more popular. Coded UI has many advantages such as the integration with TFS (Team Foundation Server) and the support of Silverlight. However, there are still some limitations compared to other more mature test automation tools. One of the biggest issues is that in Coded UI, the code for defining objects is mixed in with the automation scripts which cause difficulties when it comes to maintenance.
Recently, I found a new plug-in for Coded UI, CUITe More
With Microsoft’s Visual Studio having an integrated development and test environment, we’ve been working with several customers using Coded UI for test automation. Coded UI is a new capability of Visual Studio 2010 which provides a way to create fully automated tests to validate the functionality and behavior of your application’s user interface.
The following are some benefits from using Coded UI:
Support for Microsoft technologies (e.g. Dot net): With the application developed by Microsoft technology, the objects contained in the application can be easily recognized by Coded UI and the properties of objects are visible.
Friendly UI for automation testers to create scripts: Not only because it is based on C# and Visual Studio IDE, but also it delivers an additional GUI to help testers modify the existing scripts (this feature is in service pack 2).
Easily integrated into TFS server and controlled by Test Manager. By using Test Manager, testers can decide when the automation scripts to be executed and which machine (physical/virtual) to execute them on. The automation scripts will be executed automatically based on the schedule and then the results will be reported.
However there are some limitations in Coded UI. For example, it does not support Flash and Flex technology and currently only supports IE and Firefox browsers.
Based on my experience, I’ve listed out 5 tips in implementing Coded UI for test automation to help you save some time and get on the fast track… More
