Hello Attention: Norm,

Thank you for your interest in this feature. Currently, some of our controls support fully Coded UI tesing, other support it partially and some doesn't support it. Unfortunately RadTabControl doesn't support Coded Ui testing. 
We will be definitely working on improving the support for the built in coded UI tests. Our course of action will be first improving the controls that partially support coded UI tests and then working on the rest that do not support it at all.

Do you have a complete list of which controls are supported and which aren't? Also, are there any ETA's on when certain controls will be supported in CodedUI testing?

Thank you!

Here`s the summarized list:

-          23% of our WPF controls are fully supported

-          27% of our WPF controls  are partially supported

-          50% of our WPF controls are not supported.

·         RadExpander, RadProgressBar, RadComboBox, RadMenu, RadContextMenu, RadMaskedTextBox, RadDataPager – supported

·         RadGridView – partially supported

o   Only simple scenarios can be played back correctly

o   Scenarios involving editing cannot be replayed correctly since the cells are located by their value

·         RadTreeListView – partially supported

o   Only simple scenarios can be played back correctly

·         RadDataFilter – partially  supported

o   Cannot replay scenarios where values are entered into the various TextBox controls

·         RadButtons - partially supported

o   RadDropDownButton is recognized as a Button, not as DropDownButton. The same is valid for RadSplitButton

·         RadTreeView - partially supported

o   The RadTreeView itself is not recognized, only the RadTreeViewItem

o   The checkboxes and lines are not recognized

o   In a DataBound scenario - the headers of the RadTreeViewItem are not recognized. Also, the images within the RadTreeView are not recognized. The support for the bound TreeView is quite limited, it is not possible to expand a bound TreeViewItem

o   In the LoadOnDemand scenarios the support for the UI Coded Tests is also quite low

·         Slider - partially OK. The ranged slider isn't handled properly.

·         RadNumericUpDown – partially supported

o   Value” property is not visible for Assertion(Although it is visible when using UI SPy)

·         RadWindow – partially supported

o   The Maximized and Minimized properties do not work properly

·         RadBook, RadTileView, RadOutlookBar, RadPanelBar, RadRibbonBar, RadTabControl, RadToolBar, RadColorPicker, RadRating, RadCarousel, RadDock, RadScheduler, RadCalendar, RadDateTimePicker - NOT supported

·         Chart, Gauge and Map are not supported, except for navigation and clicking on items ( items are not recognized but clicking is performed on some coordinates ), however, all items in the Chart area of RadChart – e.g. series items, axes, labels, etc. are not recognized. The same applies for all items in RadMap. As for RadGauge - only scale labels are recognized, but not the scale itself

Unfortunately, at this stage, we cannot provide you with a certain ETA but we are currently working on this.

Hi

I am using MS Coded UI test currently as required by my company to automate tests. 

After some frustration in trying to find controls on a Silverlight 4 UI, I have been able to recognise the RadTabControl, however I cannot identify any other controls that appear within the tab.

I have just found this thread that states that the RadTabControl is not supported. Can anyone suggest a workaround for this?

We have tried the latest controls in RadControls_for_Silverlight_4_2011_1_0526_DEV_hotfix.zip (2011.1.526.1040)
but it still didn't work unfortunately.

Hi XamlmaX,

I may have not been clear in my last posts. The list with the Coded UI testing support in RadControls( that i`ve posted in this thread on January 20th) has not been updated.
On the other hand, only the RadTabControl`s Automation has been improved recently. Please excuse me if I have not been clear previously. You can also examine our Test Studio and its capabilities here. Feel free to ask if you need more info.

Can you confirm that you do not and will not support coded UI testing in Silverlight for the Microsoft Tools?

We would like to know that lack of support in the Microsoft tools is by design and is not down to configuration or bugs.

Hi Xamlmax,

Please first accept my apologies for not writing back to you earlier.
We can only confirm that currently the CodedUi Testing is partially, not completely supported in RadControls.
The CodedUi testing actually uses Automation Peers in our RadControls and they are not completely implemented at this stage of development.Working on these peers is task scheduled for Q3 2011 mid-July-mid-November. After Q3 Release, we will be working on other features/issues that will help the improvement of the CodedUi testing.

Please can you confirm that after the Q3 Release the Telerik Silverlight controls will be supported in Microsoft's Test Center and not just in Telerik Test Studio?

It is important that we get this clarification because we use the Microsoft tools because of Team Foundation Server integration and we do not have licences for Telerik Test Studio.

Hi Petar,

I just upgraded from RadControls for Silverlight 4 v2011.1.0419 to v2011.2.0712 but when I try to replay a Coded UI test that selects an item from a DataFormComboBoxField, it does not work as expected.
The ComboBox gets clicked successfully so its list items are displayed, but then the item that I clicked on during recording does not get clicked on during playback.

Any ideas?

Visual Studio 2010 Premium SP1
Internet Explorer 9

Thank you.

Hello Petar,

we have the same problem with automation support for RadControls as XamlmaX. We use components such as RadTabControl, RadGridView, RadTileViewItem, Radribonbar, etc.
Can you please confirm that after the Q3 Release these Telerik Silverlight controls will be supported in Microsoft's Test Center?

Thank you.

Hello Ohad,

Actually, there may have been some misunderstanding. Yes,we said that the Coded UI tests are partially supported for the RadTreeView. But actually, this means that the RadTreeViewItems are recognized. Unfortunately, this is not sufficient for the expansion and selection that you need.

Could you please point us to the link which shows which all controls are Fully / Partially  Supported and which are Not at all supported. 
If you don't have such list - I am particularly interested in RadGridView (Version - 2011.1.315.1040).

Vlad,

Thank you. I did check the documentation. 
Further Questions I have are :

  • Assume documentation talk about Microsoft UI Automation support, please correct ?
  • Is this list updated for very last version of Telerik Release (i.e. Q3 Beta at the time of writing this) ? Where can I check the support document for particular version i.e. Q2 2011 SP1. [It may be very obvious to find the link but question is due to time constraints not being able to find with quick search]
  • Is Telerik Team planning for full UI Automation Support (for Microsoft Coded UI Test) for RadGridView control ?

PS : Anyone who is reading this article and wondering where the Control support/no-support link is - it's here.

Hi Sid,

Per your questions:

    Yes.
  • Is this list updated for very last version of Telerik Release (i.e. Q3 Beta at the time of writing this) ? Where can I check the support document for particular version i.e. Q2 2011 SP1. [It may be very obvious to find the link but question is due to time constraints not being able to find with quick search]
    We are updating the article every time the UI Automation support has been extended. Unfortunately we do not keep this article for specific old versions. Therefore we can assist you vie the support channel.
  • Is Telerik Team planning for full UI Automation Support (for Microsoft Coded UI Test) for RadGridView control ?
    Yes, we are constantly working in this direction. Therefore, we will appreciate any feedback that can give us more details about your expectations and custom scenarios.

Hi ,

I am also in the similar situation.
I am automating my web application which built on Silver Light with Telerek Grid controls. The coded UI Tests are recognizing some of the controls but unable to recognize Tab Controls.

Do I need to download any patches from Telerik? What version of Telerik Controls who should have to support Coded UI Test

Hi,

 During Q3 2011, we've been working on improving the Automation peers of our controls which are the most important condition for a successful Coded UI test but not the only one. Could you please test your scenario with our Q3 2011 Official Release or Q3 2011 SP and let us know if this issue is still reproducible? Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Hi Petar, Thank you for the reply for my posting.

I checked with my dev team and we are having Telerik 2011.3.1116.1040 version which we are thinking the Q3 official release.


But I want to confirm with you if this is the version you are talking about.    If we have the latest version, I am having issues with Coded UI tests on this latest version only.
I also evaluated Telerek Test tools which I felt one of the best Automation testing tools but, we have decided to use Coded UI tests only for my test automation.

I posted the issue in Microsoft Coded UI and please see the response in the below thread.

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vsautotest/thread/4ddcb719-9c88-4806-be79-d958c74c6ff6

I want to know what kind of support you will provide if I get any issue with Coded UI Test. Can somebody look in to this issue by a webex meeting? As I cannot share the company confidential info with you if you need any files for resolving the issue. 

This is very is critical from testing point of view as I am unable record and play back the basic smoke tests


Thanks,
Srini

Hi Can somebody respond to my query ?

1. We have Telerik 2011.3.1116.1040 version. I want to know if this is the latest version for Coded UI TESTs to Support. 
2. If "Yes”, I am still having problem with my Coded UI Tests even with the latest version of Telerik .
3. In our application, We are using Telerik Rad controls in different pages . 
4. I cannot share all my confidential information like sending sending xaml files or something like that
5. What kind of support can we expect from Telerik , Can we do a Webex  to resolve the issue if Telerik has to support Coded UI Test issue .
6. I posted the issue in Microsoft forums and they said this issues has to be resolved my Telerik only 
Follow the below thread.

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vsautotest/thread/4ddcb719-9c88-4806-be79-d958c74c6ff6
 
When  I was evaluating Telerik Test Studio , I was getting quick response from this forum , Why I was not getting that response when I posted the issue for my Coded UI TEST with Telerik Controls

Till now I don't know who has to support this issue Microsoft or Telerik ?

Hello,
Srinivasa

Regarding your points:

1. Latest version of the Telerik's controls is the Q3 SP (2011.3.1220.1040) but I doubt there would be a significant change compared to the official Q3 release regarding Coded UI Automation.

2,3,4. We understand you can not share confidential information about your project. However we would appreciate sample a project demonstrating the issue in isolated scenario.

5. You could use our support ticketing system in cases when you need a prompt response to urgent issues. This is the best way to reach our support staff - the support system assigns a response time for all of your questions, depending on your license and ensures that all questions will reach the respective developers, if needed. 

6. The answer to your post provided by Microsoft is totaly correct. Third party vendors should implement the support regarding Coded UI Automation.
You could check current UI Automation support for RadControls via following link.

All the best,
Stefan

I am getting problem with Telerik 2011.3.1116.1040 licensed version.

Here is the Test Scenario

I logged into Home page -

Patient records displayed in telerik radview control.
By default the focus is set to very first record and if we click on the 'View' button to navigate to next page , my coded ui test is working fine but when I select a any other record other than default focus record or double click on it , Coded UI test will fail

Once user is navigating to Patient info page  , all the records are displayed in a telerik radview control  ( again above issue will repeat here )
When you go to Final review page (Test results page ) , all the tests are displaying in tabbed format . 

By default focus is set for very first tab and the data is displayed again here in the telerik radview control   .
When you click on the grid or when you switch to different tab, the Coded UI Test will fail.

1. Whenever you get time, Can we go for quick webex? , in that way you will be finding the root cause of the issue very quickly and will be knowing the complexity of the issue. Our Project team also eagerly waiting for your reply.

Once again, We have already evaluated Telerik Test Studio which is best for our Silver light applications but unfortunately we have decided to stick with in Coded UI Test only which are built - in with MS Visual Studio 2010.  

Thanks,
Srini

Hello Srini,

We managed to reproduce the issue with RadTabControl locally and we logged it as bug in our PITS where you can track its progress as well as vote for it to increase the priority of the task. As a small sign of appreciation for bringing this issue to our attention I updated your Telerik account.

Also, your account information indicates that your Test Studio trial period has ran out and this is why you can't send a support ticket to the Test Studio team. In this case we can either extend your trial period or you can download another trial. Another option is to use our forums to post your questions regarding Test Studio.
