Hello Sujith,

I need a few more details about what you're trying to test. Is this Grid a Telerik control? Or is it some other third party vendor control?

Usually the code that does the Filtering and Grouping is code that is built into the control itself. If you automate and testing Filtering and Grouping you're only testing the code for the control. You'll be far more productive if you avoid testing the code of the controls your web application uses and focus on testing the business logic of your web application i.e. the code that your web developer has written. Assume the control works as expected (or manually test it if needed).

The only case where it makes sense to test the code for the control is if that's what your company is producing, a control. Then yes you want to produce lots of automation to verify the control works before you release it to your customers.

You also did not specify what type of application you are testing, Silverlight? HTML? WPF?

Hi,
    Thanks for your response. 
    We are using telerik studio to test  " HTML (MVC) application with gird properties in Kendo controls".
     Whether we can use test studio to test applications developed with telerik controls?

Hi Sujith,

Whether we can use test studio to test applications developed with Telerik controls?

Yes, we highly recommend that in fact! Test Studio can be used to test applications developed with other third party controls as well.

The real point I want to get across is that the code that performs the Filtering and Grouping is built into the KendoUI control from Telerik. If you automate this, you'll be testing Telerik code, not code your web developers wrote. I strongly encourage to skip automated testing of Filtering and Grouping. Just assume it's working. If it's broken you need to report it to the KendoUI team at Telerik. Your developers wouldn't be able to fix it. You could spend some time testing it manually just to make sure your developers wired it up. But the control will either work as a whole or not work at all. It's not possible for Filtering and Grouping to be broken while the rest of the control works.
