    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 ...

The file in question is simply a C#/VB class file that has the exact same name as your test:   You can open and edit the entire class file from Standalone by using the View Class button: And you'll be able to do anything you would expect from a class file - define custom functions, add assembly references, define global variables etc. In fact, all your coded ...

    Here we grow again. Telerik acquires Fiddler. What’s next?

    We have some very exciting news to share with the Telerik community.  Telerik has just acquired Fiddler!  Even more exciting is that Fiddler’s brilliant creator Eric Lawrence will come over from Microsoft to join the team fulltime.  For those of you who don’t know, Fiddler is a web debugging proxy which logs all HTTP(S) traffic between your computer or device and the Internet. In other words, it is an essential tool for any web, desktop or mobile developer.  The popularity and sophistication of Fiddler is hugely impressive considering this has been Eric's informal side project for more than 8 years.  With Eric joining the team ...
