    Is it the case that XAML popup context menus cannot be seen by the Silverlight recorder? When I record, it seems to still hit the point, but it thinks its hitting something behind the popup menu. Is there a way to use 'Find' to locate it? That did not seem to work for me in code behind as well. Is this militation I had read about regarding popups?

    Hi Stephen,

    So were you referring something similar to the context menu thrown when right clicking on this demo page's monitor screen/desktop? If so, then this would be an instance of a Silverlight 3 child window that WebUI is unable to recognize since it is not part of the app's visual tree.

    As in the demo, the items in the context menu cannot be highlighted with WebUI. If your window/menu is not highlighted by WebUI also, then it would be a simlar case.

    We are working other ways to automate the child windows and hope to have this resolved in a future versions of the product. If you were referring to another Rad control, please point out which one in the demo pages.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Stephen,

    This is just to update this thread in regards to the problem discussed here. I'd like to point anyone interested to the latest WebUI Test Studio 2010.2 major release and the Silverlight ChildWindow & Popups automation solution here.

    As explained in the blog post we need the popups and ChildWindows to be tracked by our Telerik.WebUI.PopupTracker. The good about RadContextMenu (and any other Rad-popup when available) is that our tracker is also integrated into the RadControls for Silverlight. This means the RadContextMenu is tracked anyway so you don't have to change the application code as with any other non-Rad popups to make that popup accessible for automation.

    Should you have any feedback please let us know.
