    When trying to create recordings for test cases in Microsoft Test Manager 2013, we are running across the 3 issues below:

    1-     MTM is unable to pass parameters that we set in the test cases for the dropdowns selected

    2-     MTM is unable to select multiple (3) dropdowns on the same row within a table; it crashes after selecting the first dropdown

    3-     MTM is unable to record any actions in the Kendo UI Grids

    We are currently running Kendo UI version Q3 2014.

    Are any of these issues resolved in the latest version of Kendo UI?

    Thanks,

    Hello Rick,

    We do not officially support Microsoft Test Manager 2013.
    A resource that may be of help in addressing the challenges you meet when creating automated tests for Kendo UI is Jim Holmes' article
    “Functional GUI Testing and Kendo UI”.

    Our recommended product for test automation is “Telerik Test Studio” which has built-in translators for Kendo UI.
    You can have a look at how it works at:

    Hi Atanas,I tried the test studio, couple of things we ran into are as follows (We are using IE 11):  - 

    1. The Kendo Grid incell edits are not persisting. While the test studio captures the Grid's SaveChangesLink it does not persist the updated value. On a regular editor control it works fine.

    2. When clicking on "kendoMenuOption" the test fails with the following exception : Invalid control '[Element: 'li:18']'.  Control does not match FindExpression '[class 'Contains' k-item] AND [TagName 'Exact' li]'
    Invalid control '[Element: 'li:18']'.  Control does not match FindExpression '[class 'Contains' k-item] AND [TagName 'Exact' li]'

    Thanks

    Hi Atanas, 

    Attached are the test case files from Test Studio.

    Also the error message appears below:

    Invalid control '[Element: 'li:22']'.  Control does not
    match FindExpression '[class 'Contains' k-item] AND [TagName 'Exact' li]'

    Invalid control '[Element: 'li:22']'.  Control does not
    match FindExpression '[class 'Contains' k-item] AND [TagName 'Exact' li]'

    Hello Rick,
    My assumption is that the find expression for some dynamic elements on the page have to be corrected, so the test will run smoothly every time. In order to adjust these we will need a sample site against which to run the test.
    You can take a look at the find settings when you right click on an element (in the Elements panel in Test Studio) and select “Edit Element”.
