Hi there,
Reading the post located in http://www.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools/support/documentation/user-guide/write-tests-in-code/silverlight-test-automation/introduction.aspx
I can see some limitations for the framework; for example "The automation only supports the XAP deployment method.". What does mean?

Br,
Rolando

Hi Rolando,

A standard/simple instantiation of a Silverlight from an ASP.NET page looks like this:

<object data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," type="application/x-silverlight-2"
    width="100%" height="100%">
    <param name="source" value="ClientBin/SilverlightAppTesting.xap" />
    <param name="onError" value="onSilverlightError" />
    <param name="background" value="white" />
    <param name="minRuntimeVersion" value="4.0.50401.0" />
    <param name="autoUpgrade" value="true" />
    <a href="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=149156&v=4.0.50401.0" style="text-decoration: none">
        <img src="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=161376" alt="Get Microsoft Silverlight"
            style="border-style: none" />
    </a>
</object>

What's critical to us is the "source" param. You can see it is pointing to a .xap file. This is what is critical to Test Studio. I can also see from your screen shot you are emitting a "source" param that points to a .xap file. The difference is you are varying the file path/name based on some variables (debug mode, etc.).

This page talks about the various ways you can integrate a Silverlight application into a web page. What matters to us is that ultimately a .XAP file is downloaded from the web server. We detect the .XAP file being downloaded and will hook into it automatically.

All the best,
