Thanks a lot for your time and submission of the CodeLibrary project. I have some notes and updates you may find useful.
First I'd like to add some functionality to the project in regards to the AutomationProperty capabilities of WebAii. The automation properties are useful to get access to the actual custom control properties.
For example the Silverlight user control can expose a Text public property:
and the control wrapper can access it via an AutomationProperty like this:
AutomationProperty TextProperty =
/// Just a sample usage of automation properties.
// return this.SearchTextBox.Text;
I've also added a test to make sure I've not missed anything in the implementation:
"A sample test method demonstrating the Text automation property usage."
UserLookup userLookup = CurrentApplication.Find.ByName<UserLookup>(
I hope this info helps!
Another note is, we always recommend making the project independent from the exact assemblies version so that no matter which future build you install, you just rebuild the solution and proceed. This requires to update the SpecificVersion to "False" from the projects assembly references (ArtOfTest.Common
In order to run the tests after upgrading that project with a new version, you may also need to change the config section a bit. It currently refers the ArtOfTest.WebAii with the exact version and instead you can remove the assembly details:
As well as set the Copy Local
property of the referenced assembly to True
so that Visual Studio can get it from the output folder.
I've attached an image to show the mentioned assembly settings (SpecificVersion, CopyLocal) along with the updated project.
