    I've been attempting to write/run some automated UI tests using and selenium on our app that is using kendo UI.  So far its been a struggle.  I've run into a lot of issues where elements "don't exist" on the page until they've been clicked, or they just don't exist in a state where cucumber can interact with them.  

    Has anyone else done any sort of UI testing and/or had issues with this kind of behavior?

    Hello Harrison,

    I have already responded to the same private support ticket, however,  I will post my response here as well in case anyone else is on the lookout for automated testing of Kendo UI Widgets.

    We use QUnit to test our widgets and I would recommend checking it out if you are not constrained by using Cucumber:

    You are correct in your observation that  occasionally the tested Kendo UI Widget is not yet available or no longer exists -  one such widget may be the Kendo UI Window (e.g. on its own or in a Kendo UI popup editable Grid or Scheduler). The tested window may be missing as it is destroyed when closed to avoid memory leaks. Kendo UI Window tests are available at:

    Finally, all open source widgets tests in our repository are available for your reference at:

    Kind Regards,
