    Hello Stanislav,

    Yes, I can confirm that our Visual Studio plug-in fully supports all WPF RadControls. It also has a built-in Translators to provide additional actions and verifications against sites built with Telerik RadControls.

    Hello Plamen,

    Thank you for your quick reply. Does Visual Studio plug-in allow to develop UI automated tests in C# code (find windows, controls, click, verify, get property values etc.)? I don't like Record&Playback way to create and maintain automated tests, that is why I am looking for something like Coded UI API without UIMap functionality (WpfControl, WpfButton etc.).

    Thank you.

    Stas.

    Hi Stanislav,

    Using our Visual Studio plug-in you can do pretty much anything in code. You can find some coded WPF samples in our online documentation here and here. You can also take advantage of our Convert All Steps to Code functionality, which is only available in the VS plug-in.

    Hello Plamen,

    Thank you for your reply. It looks like your automation solution supports everything I need. I would be also grateful if you could answer on my another question in this thread: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/wpf/general-discussions/does-coded-ui-support-the-following-wpf-rad-controls.aspx#2166440

    As to the provided examples, I couldn't figure out about classes that used for Rad components (my list) automation. Unfortunately, documentation is shortage of C# examples that will show all capabilities. Is it possible to use all these functionality in trial version?

    And the last question, what kind of mechanism do you use to identify and interact with Rad controls? As far as I know, most of your components do not support AutomationPeer capabilities.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards,
    Stas.

    Hello Stanislav,

    The question you are refering to is addressed to another Telerik team. I'm sure that my colleagues from the WPF team will respond you shortly.

    On your second question, yes the same functionality can be used when you are in trial mode. The only limitation is the amount of time you can use the product. The classes you are searching for are located in the Telerik.WebAii.Controls.Xaml namespace. 
      
    The way our recorder works is to locate every single element in the DOM or Visual Tree(Silverlight and WPF). You can add any verification against the elements and verify any attribute that appears in the Visual Tree which is what you actually have in the UI. We don't use any Automation Peer classes.
