    I will be using Visual Studio Test Pro 2015 (with MS Test Manager) and I need to know if MTM will recognize Telerik controls when I create an Action Recording on my WPF app.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Dale,

    Could you please share some more details on your scenario? How do you plan to create your test - using MTM action recording only or using it and generating code for CodedUI test afterwards? It would be great if you could give us an example on what type of tests you plan to execute and the expected outcome, using a native Microsoft WPF control.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi Geri!

    Sure! So, we plan to create our tests by launching the software product with MTM along side ... creating action recording in the process. Later on we will playback these recordings and hopefully all the cool Telerik controls will be recognized! Brian Keller (VP of MS Test Group a few years ago) said to make sure that any third-party controls used are recognized by VSTP. Hence this question.

    For example, say we have a test case that is 5 steps long...and 3 of these steps involve Telerik controls (button, datagrid/sort, etc). We want to know if the playback of this test case in MTM will work. The expected outcome is that the test case will run all 5 steps automatically and not get stuck on the Telerik controls.

    Finally, we will export these action recordings into a CodedUI project in Visual Studio for automated testing (test case to test case). I would expect that if Telerik controls are recognized in the action recordings above then they will export just fine in the CodedUI  project.

    Thank you in advance for all your help!

    Hi Dale,

    Thank you very much for the comprehensive information you sent us.
    Currently, we're setting up Microsoft Test Manager on our side. As soon as we're set up, we'll recreate your scenario and will get back to you with more details. Also, please note Visual Studio's statement that Visual Studio Test Pro 2015 doesn't support CodedUI:

    Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
    We'll be in touch shortly.

    Here is the Youtube link (Brian Keller, former VP MS Test) we are using as the basis for CodedUI import into Visual Studio:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2Bs3ww76ng 

    Look at time mark 46:00 for the next 5 minutes or so. We will create the action recordings (with Telerik controls) in VSTP. Then import these action recordings into VS.

    Our hope is that when the TEST GROUP creates these action recordings that all the Telerik controls we use will be recognized by VSTP. Then the TG can just hit PLAY on each test and VSTP just follows the test-steps...regardless if the control is a MS control or a Telerik control.

    The CodedUI piece is how we think we can automate all these action recordings (tests)...say overnight.

    Thanks for all your help!
