Hello:

I am automating an application which has majority of the controls build using KendoUI such as
KendoGrid
Kendo Temaplate etc


Can you please help me how to identify these controls such as Kendo Grid and proceed further.Also please let me know Telerik Test tsudio completely supports Kendo UI controls or not.If not then from which version of test studio can we expect a complete support.

Thanks,
Naga

Hello,

To give you an accurate answer how do you define "...completely supports Kendo UI controls..."? Test Studio supports any/all HTML elements/controls to one degree or another. It always has and always will. The real question is to what level of support are you seeking?

Test Studio comes with a set of "translators" (extended support) for Silverlight controls, some of the common HTML controls, and our large set of RadControls. We do not have any translators for the special Kendo UI controls. That should not stop or prevent your test automation tasks however. Test Studio will recognize the base elements used to make up the Kendo UI controls and interact with and automate all of those elements out of the box.

If you run into any specific problems please let us know.

All the best,
Cody

Hello,

I must apologize and eat my own words now. A colleague reminded me we do have specific translators for Kendo UI. The list includes:

  • KendoCalendar
  • KendoGrid
  • KendoInput
  • KendoListview
  • KendoMenu
  • KendoPager
  • KendoPanelBar
  • KendoTabStrip
  • KendoTreeView
  • KendoWindow

Sorry for not paying attention to this fact earlier!!

All the best,

Hello Naga,

I am sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this. Here are some samples with Kendo UI controls.

Kendo Grid
 
//Get the grid object
KendoGrid grid = ActiveBrowser.Find.ById<KendoGrid>("grid");
 
 
//Search for a row that contains "Chang" in its first cell
foreach (KendoGridDataItem row in grid.DataItems)
{
    if (row.Cells[0].TextContent == "Chang")
    {
        //Create a Confirm dialog
        ConfirmDialog cd = new ConfirmDialog(ActiveBrowser, DialogButton.OK);
        Manager.DialogMonitor.AddDialog(cd);
        Manager.DialogMonitor.Start();
 
        //Click on the last cell
        row.Cells[3].MouseClick();
 
        //Handle the Confirm dialog
        cd.WaitUntilHandled();
        Manager.DialogMonitor.RemoveDialog(cd);
    }
}

Kendo Calendar
 
//Get the Calendar object
KendoCalendar calendar = ActiveBrowser.Find.ById<KendoCalendar>("calendar");
 
//Select date
calendar.selectDay("2013, 09, 18");


Kendo ComboBox    
 
//ComboBox1
HtmlControl label = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByExpression<HtmlControl>("for=categories");
Assert.IsNotNull(label);
KendoInput combo = label.BaseElement.GetNextSibling().As<KendoInput>();
 
HtmlControl arrow = combo.Find.ByExpression<HtmlControl>("class=k-icon k-arrow-down");
arrow.MouseClick();
 
ActiveBrowser.RefreshDomTree();
 
HtmlListItem item = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByContent<HtmlListItem>("Confections");
item.MouseClick();
 
 
//ComboBox2
HtmlControl label2 = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByExpression<HtmlControl>("for=products");
Assert.IsNotNull(label);
KendoInput combo2 = label2.BaseElement.GetNextSibling().As<KendoInput>();
 
HtmlControl arrow2 = combo2.Find.ByExpression<HtmlControl>("class=k-icon k-arrow-down");
arrow2.MouseClick();
 
ActiveBrowser.RefreshDomTree();
 
HtmlListItem item2 = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByContent<HtmlListItem>("Pavlova");
item2.MouseClick();
 
 
//ComboBox3
HtmlControl label3 = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByExpression<HtmlControl>("for=orders");
Assert.IsNotNull(label);
KendoInput combo3 = label3.BaseElement.GetNextSibling().As<KendoInput>();
 
HtmlControl arrow3 = combo3.Find.ByExpression<HtmlControl>("class=k-icon k-arrow-down");
arrow3.MouseClick();
 
ActiveBrowser.RefreshDomTree();
 
HtmlListItem item3 = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByContent<HtmlListItem>("London");
item3.MouseClick();

If you have a specific scenario that you want to automate, please describe it in details and I'll be glad to assist you in writing the code.

Hi Prasanna,

The code is the same for all browsers, however the implementation of some of these Kendo UI controls has been changed. Please provide detailed information on your automation scenario. What type of Kendo control you're testing and what is the problem you're experiencing? If you can provide access to your application or if you can point me to a similar publicly accessible application I'll be glad to assist you in writing the code. 

Kind regards,

I used the sample code written for Calender.    As per the example given, it is supposed to pick up the 18th September 2013.
  
            //Select date
            calendar.selectDay("2013, 09, 18");
  
But it is selecting 18th October 2013.    Even i tried with different month and date, it is always picks up following month's date.

Hello Sreekanth,

Yes, you are right. The month list starts from 0. So for January you should type 0, for February 1, for March 2, e.t.c.

If you need additional assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

When user enters date format like below, they expect same month and not following month.
calendar.selectDay("2013, 09, 18"); 
  
It will be very confusing.  Is it possible to provide a fix for this.

Hi Sreekanth,

You are right that this might be counterintuitive since in C#,  DateTime months are not Zero-based as they are in JavaScript Date Object. I filed feedback on your behalf on this problem, which you can follow in our Feedback Portal. 

Thank you for your understanding.

We have written below code for KendoComboBox.

            HtmlControl sizeui = myManager.ActiveBrowser.Find.ById<HtmlControl>(capSizeId);
            HtmlListItem capSizeItem = sizeui.Find.ByContent<HtmlListItem>(selectCapSize);
            capSizeItem.Wait.ForExists();
            capSizeItem.Click();

I feel we should be able to write on similar lines for KendoListView.

Hi Srikanth,

   Thanks for your responce. Your solution is not working for me. Could you please look at my kendo listview html content.

<ul id="lvAvailablePayers" class="k-widget k-listview k-selectable" data-bind="source: AvailablePayerList" data-role="listview" role="listbox" aria-multiselectable="true">
<div data-bind="text: Name, value: PayerId" data-uid="80a5851f-3a2d-40d7-85ee-4829f4f9d8c9" role="option" aria-selected="false"> Payer1</div>
<div data-bind="text: Name, value: PayerId" data-uid="227b1c05-fa8f-4cd1-9999-99a3ac97cc3d" role="option" aria-selected="false">Payer2
</div>
<div data-bind="text: Name, value: PayerId" data-uid="9e97dc21-ed5d-4952-a665-ae9cf5664376" role="option" aria-selected="false">Payer3

@ Sreekanth - Thank you for sharing your experience.

@Manjunath -

You should be able to use code similar to the following:
KendoListViewItem newItem = Find.ByExpression<KendoListViewItem>("id=lvAvailablePayers","|","tagIndex=div:0");
This code should select the first KendoListViewItem. You can change the tagIndex depending on which item you need.

You might find our documentation very useful for cases like this one.

I hope this helps.

Hi velin,


     Thank you for response.  I got another solution.


            KendoListView lvAvailablePayers = CurrentBrowser.Find.ById<KendoListView>("lvAvailablePayers");
            ReadOnlyCollection<HtmlDiv> items = lvAvailablePayers.Find.AllByAttributes<HtmlDiv>("role=option");
            items[0].MouseClick();

Hi All, 

I am facing same issue selecting value from kendoUI combobox. I tried code mentioned above, but still no luck. Please help me out here.

In attached document, Code is for family drop down List, So if I want to select value from Family Drop Down List ,say for example option value "ABC", How do i select as a coded step? 

I tried doing this way: 
HtmlListItem value = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByContent<HtmlListItem>("ABC");
value.MouseClick();

And this code is throwing error like : Object reference not set to an instance of an object
I think it might be getting Null value,but I need your advice to successfully select value from family Drop Down.


Thank you.

Hi Darshana,

Thank you for contacting us.

If you want to select the item by its text the code should look like:

HtmlSelect mySelect = ActiveBrowser.Find.ById<HtmlSelect>("combo-family");
mySelect.SelectByText("ABC");


If you want to select if by its value:

HtmlSelect mySelect = ActiveBrowser.Find.ById<HtmlSelect>("combo-family");
mySelect.SelectByValue("675390");

Hope this helps.

Hi Boyan,

I am getting error " Object reference not set to an instance of an object.".

Before Code:(Working)

Pages.OtherItemsLedgex.TC13401ProductDiv.Wait.ForExists();
Pages.OtherItemsLedgex.TC13401ProductDiv.TypeText("xcastle Arbitrage LP");
Pages.OtherItemsLedgex.TC13401ProductDiv.ToggleCombo();
System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(250);
Pages.OtherItemsLedgex.ListitemProductSelected.MouseClick();

After Code:(Not Working)
Pages.OtherItemsLedgex.TC13401ProductDiv.ToggleCombo();
HtmlSelect mySelect = ActiveBrowser.Find.ById<HtmlSelect>("combo-product");
mySelect.SelectByText("xcastle Arbitrage LP");

 So, for before Code , I am not confident about it whether it is right way to do it or not . And  for After Code, I want to write the way you have mentioned in the code above. But it is throwing an error. 

 I tried selecting value by recording, but it is taking List Item for that particular value , so because of that I can't reuse this object in other testcases/test steps. I have to record this object again if I want to select different value. 

 Let me know if you need more information.
 Thank you for your help.

We have translator for KendoInput elements.

If the editor is implemented with some other elements Test Studio will find it also with its basic HTML elements.

I tried to test the url (http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/editor/index) where you can find the KendoEditor. During recording, In that editor I have typed as "test". When I playback those steps in telerik test studio, it shows error that element is not found. Please find the attachment where you cannot find the HTMLInput element in the KendoEditor. Please guide me how to test on this.
