    I am new to Coded UI and Telerik controls and having some issues with building coded UI tests on a Telerik based application. The AUT is developed using Telerik WPF (or Winforms not actually sure) and when I record the actions, each edit control is recorded under a separate window. Also, for each of the windows and edit boxes there are no search properties recorded. Though the test seems to work when I run it, it would be a maintenance issue if UIMAP does not have controls with unique properties.I have followed instructions provided in "". 

    Do I go back to the developers and ask them to define the control names or am I missing something ?

    Hello Sachid,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I find it hard to understand what product you are using from the provided information. Can you please check and let us know whether the technology is WinForms or WPF? 

    The WinForms technology provides Search Properties which expose the type of the control at the very least. You can also see other supported features by the WinForms suite here: Coded UI Test Extension for 3rd party controls - the basics explained - Microsoft Application Lifecycle Management - Site Home - MSDN Blogs.

    You can also consider sending a sample project which would help us further investigate this matter.

    Looking forward hearing from you again.

    Check out Telerik Analytics, the service which allows developers to discover app usage patterns, analyze user data, log exceptions, solve problems and profile application performance at run time. Watch the videos and start improving your app based on facts, not hunches.
