    Video from "Solving Common Web Automation Problems" is Live!

    The video from last week’s webinar on solving common problems in web automation is live on Telerik TV! Watch this video and you’ll learn some tricks for dealing with locators, dynamic content, and tables. Please note this is a fairly generic webinar. I spent most of my time using WebDriver in C#. There’s a bit of Test Studio, but it’s more about the overall domain. I hope you find it useful! About the author Jim Holmes Jim Holmes has around 25 years IT experience.

And here's what the user is looking to do in his own words: How do I create a test which modifies the user.config file before opening the application? Hopefully it will be interesting for you to see how I put this together. I did a bit of research and it went like this: 1) What's a user.config file? I figured I probably have one of these on my hard-drive. I did a Windows search ...

    Notes from the “Solving Common Web UI Automation Problems” Webinar

    Yesterday I hosted an hour-long webinar on Solving Common Web UI Automation Problems. The point of this webinar wasn’t to show off Test Studio; I actually did the vast amount of the webinar using WebDriver and C#. (I’m always happy to get an excuse to dive back in to writing some code…) I’m working on uploading the video; however, that likely won’t be live until tomorrow. In the meantime, please enjoy these other resources from the webinar: My main slide deck: My "Why U No Test Yur UI" deck Source code for the demos (all on my GitHub profile) Generic ...
