    I am working on creating automated tests with CodedUI and I am having problems with the RadDropDownList. I can't verify the values that the RadDropDownList is set to. Whenever i try to verify the values CodedUI points to the a generic text box on the page. I am using version 2011.2.11.831. Even if I get a hold of the list the selected string value == null even when a value is selected.

    I see that RadDropDownList is supports CodedUI so I wonder if I am doing something wrong or if there is a bug. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think I found a solution but I have to remove the style I am using RadDropDownStyle.DropDownList. Is there any way to continue to use a style and get the selected value from the RadDropDownList?

    Hi James,

    Thank you for writing.

    I would like to clarify what we support from Coded UI tests - we support Basic Record and Playback, but we do not support Rich Property Validation and Intent Aware Actions, because we do not provide yet a Coded UI MSAA plug-in for MS Visual Studio that should be developed for this kind of scenario. I am afraid that currently I cannot propose a workaround for this.

    For more information, please read these blog posts about Coded UI Test Extension for 3rd party Windows Forms controls:
