Hi I am evaluating telerik Testing Framework to Automate my test. The page "http://docs.telerik.com/teststudio/testing-framework/write-tests-in-code/silverlight-wpf-automation-wtc/locating-elements" shows that one can use "Automation Id", "ByText" etc except ByName (Which doesn't work, it doesn't find the textbox). 

Also i used "app.FindName<TextBox>("Password").Text = "xyz";"  But this throws an error saying it cannot find the element.

Please let me know what I am missing.

Hello Chandan,

Yes you can locate elements in Silverlight using the AutomationID and the TextContent.

Instead of ActiveBrowser.Find you will have to use app.Find.

Please refer to the screenshot attached for more clarity.
