Hello,

I'm trying to automate functional testing of a .NET 4, WPF client using the Telerik Radview control package.

I can record CodedUI tests just fine on the client. During playback, text entry halts on a text fields and the test times out and fails.
(Other WPF controls accept text just fine in the client during playback)

The text field is seen by the test tool because I used: "uIPART_ExtendedTextBoxEdit.DrawHighlight();" and can see the field highlighted.

Is there a patch that can be issued to allow this issue to be resolved?

Thanks,

Dan

Yordanka,

What's the timeline on implementing this feature? Do you have a patch that is in the works you can send? I'll test it for you free of charge.
This is a critical road block for my client's application and we're dead in the water on automation efforts.

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Dan,

We are currently figuring out how to solve problem like yours and we would really appreciate it if you could send us the test project with the test that is failing in your case. If this is not convenient we would also be grateful if you could send us the any exception message that gets displayed during the failing test run.


Kind regards,

Hello Dan,

We have performed tests on all of our control for compatibility with Coded UI Tests in Visual Studio and there a few problem with some of them like RadGridView, for example. 

We will be working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issues but it is a bit difficult to give you an ETA. If you could provide us with a list of all controls that you are having trouble with we could focus on those controls and possibly fix those issues faster. Are there other problematic controls besides RadGridView?


Sincerely yours,
Milan

Milan,

So far the only controls that work on playback are the checkbox and radio button.

The starting list of controls would be:
Drop down (combo box)
Text Box
All Labels (for assertions also)
Date Picker
Time Picker
 

Thanks,

Hello Dan,

Thank you for your feedback! We'll definitely work on improving the support of built in Coded UI tests across all of our WPF controls. Unfortunately for the time being we cannot commit to any specific date or release the availability of full support for Coded UI tests.

Hristo,

You mention there is no time frame to full support.
What about a time frame to partial support for the few controls mentioned?
The main reason I persist is If I keep telling my client I don't know, it's not useful to them.

Thanks, for the assistance

Hi Dan,

To summarize the current support for Coded UI test:s:
- RadExpander, RadProgressBar, RadComboBox, RadMenu, RadContextMenu, RadMaskedTextBox, RadDataPager – supported
- RadGridView, RadTreeListView, RadDataFIlter, RadButtons, RadTreeView, RadNumericUpDown, RadChart and RadWindow are partially supported and simple scenarios can be played back correctly. Scenarios which involve editing are not supported.
- RadBook, RadTileView, RadOutlookBar, RadPanelBar, RadRibbonBar, RadTabControl, RadToolBar, RadColorPicker, RadRating, RadCarousel, RadDock, RadScheduler, RadCalendar, RadDateTimePicker are not supported for the time being.

We are doing our best to improve the Coded UI test for our Q3 2010 official release.

As for the Drop Down (combo box), Text box and All Label, please clarify do you refer to our controls or the standard ones.

Hristo

Hello Hristo,

To clarify which controls:
The check box and radio buttons are WPF (Not Telerik)
The Telerik Combo Boxes do work.
It's mainly the Telerik Labels and Text Boxes at this time.

Sorry for the confusion.

I've passed along the timeline you mentioned to my client.
Shooting for Q3 2010 and looking forward to the release.

Thanks, for the assistance!

Is it known at this time if our issues will be addressed with the Q3 2010 WPF release?

If it is known that they are not addressed, feel free to speak to that also.

Thanks,

Hi Dan,

Unfortunately, we were not able to focus much on the VS 2010 CodedUI tests for Q3 2010 release. Although there are some small improvements for the Tab controls we couldn't manage to include more. We'll do our best to have better news for Q3 2010 SP1 release.

Hristo,

Is the PITS section of the Telerik site the main vehicle that dictates what is worked on via popular vote?

http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/wpf/2011-q1

If so, our issue hasn't been on the radar.

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Dan,

The PITS system is a way for customers to create feature suggestions and vote for them. In addition, they can report bugs and check the progress of fixing them there too.
But it is not the only vehicle. We have internal plans which we will reveal when publishing the roadmap for the Q1 2011 release on our web site.

Hi Dan,

I am sorry to hear about your frustration while working with our controls.

Indeed we are a little behind with our UI Automation support. This is a result from some shifts in our development plans. I can assure you that we have increased the priority of the CodedUI tests support and we will do our best to introduce major improvements for our Q3 2011 official release.

We’ve also have come to learn that due to the lack of MSAA control support we will not be able to do the kinds of testing we need to do with codedui test or fastforward playback using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Test Professional.

 

Please include MSAA support for your WPF controls.

 

Here’s where we learned about the lack of support after opening a Premier Support incident with Microsoft.

Hi,

now it's time to update this post, because Visual Studio 2015 is out now and the coded UI tests doesn't always run yet.
I just want to "click" a radio button and get this error result after automated test run (see below).

Hello,

Can you please confirm which Telerik controls you are testing? By mentioning radio button, do you mean RadRadioButton? Do you have reference to our CodedUI extensions assembly: Telerik.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITest.Extension.ExtensionsCore, or you are testing only level 1 functionality? If you are using this assembly, with Q2 SP we released a new version of it that targets VS2015.

Hello Ivan,

thank you for your fast reply!
because your components are third party in the solution we work on, I have to ask our vendor which version of telerik components they are using. But the screenshot could help you to identifie the radio button. So, yes, we are testing only level 1 functionality and want to automate our tests. From where can I get the assembly you mentioned? We just want to test the solution, we do not have the code of this one. Can I download a NuGet package, which solves the problem for the coded UI tests? I've read an articel which said, that there is a problem wis the WPF MSAA support in your components, but you are not the only ones. Here is a list of technique and vendor problems with components:

http://www.edsquared.com/2011/02/01/ThirdParty+Support+For+Visual+Studio+Coded+UI+Testing.aspx

What can we do? If you want to take a look on the solution, we can make a NetViewer meeting tomorrow. Please contact me if you want to do so. Don't forget the screenshot attachment.

 

Best regards
Christian

Hi Ivan,

our vendor said it's version 2013.2.717.35 of the Telerik.Web.UI. And yes, it's the RadRadioButton component, too.
Is there any way to test them with MTM 2015 or VS2015 coded UI tests?

Best Regards
Christian

Hello,

As far as I can see from the last information that you provided, you are using the Telerik components for ASP.NET AJAX. Can you please open a new thread in the APS.NET forum, as this thread already contains a discussion about WPF?
