Hеllo Vinay,

Instead of using automation property try using an attached property as demonstrated in this forum post.

If you are still not able to manage this please provide us with a sample demo project so we can take a look.

Hi, Sorry for late reply.

i have tried using GetAttachedProperty() way. But that also did not works for me.
We have added a automation peer to a silverlight control.
Now i want to get the automation peer associated with a silverlight custom control using telerik testing framework. HelpText property of automation peer is used to exposed the required information. i want to get that information(HelpText of automation peer) from the custom control.

i am trying the following way:

Manager.LaunchNewBrowser(BrowserType.InternetExplorer);
ActiveBrowser.NavigateTo("http://localhost:1031/SampleSilverlightAppTestPage.aspx");
SilverlightApp app = ActiveBrowser.SilverlightApps()[0];
Assert.IsNotNull(app);
FrameworkElement myCustomControl = app.Find.ByName("myCustomControl");
string helpText = myCustomControl.GetAttachedProperty<double>("String", "HelpText");

Its throwing me the exception as :

Test method START.CrossBrowser.Tests.RegressionTesting.RegressionTesting_FullRegressionTest threw exception:
ArtOfTest.WebAii.Silverlight.ExecuteSilverlightCommandException: [Silverlight Extension Error] Details: ArtOfTest.WebAii.Silverlight.NoSuchPropertyException: Unable to find attached property owner class 'String'
   at Telerik.TestingFramework.XamlExtension.ClientServices.GetAttachedPropertyValue(AutomationProperty property, Object obj)
   at Telerik.TestingFramework.XamlExtension.ClientServices.GetRealProperty(AutomationReference reference, AutomationProperty property)
   at Telerik.TestingFramework.XamlExtension.ClientProcessor.ProcessCommand(String command).

Hello Vinay,

In order to assist further we will need a sample project against our Silverlight controls that reproduces the issue you are experiencing.

Thank you for your cooperation in advance.
