This training seminar demonstrates how to record tests run against various types of application user interfaces using Microsoft Visual Studio’s Coded UI Tests and how to replay them at any time. Additionally, we explore how to embed validations, either simple or elaborate, to ensure your application is producing the correct results. Learn how to improve the quality of your applications by having a repeatable set of Microsoft Coded UI Tests available to ensure defects don’t go unnoticed!

  • Getting Started with Coded UI Testing: Building Your First Automated Test Imaginet Resources Corp. www.imaginet.com
  • Speaker BioAnna RussoSr. ALM Consultant• TFS/ALM is what I do!• Work for Imaginet since 2008• ALM MVP• Testing Background• In my free time: – Cycling in Southern California – Blogging – Volunteer Testing Tools on Visual Studio Gallery
  • Agenda• Coded UI Test Overview• Recording Coded UI Tests• Adding Test Validation• Writing your own code• Best Practices
  • Coded UI Test Tools• Used to automate testing from the user interface• Test development/maintenance in Visual Studio• Tools provided to improve creation and maintenance of Coded UI tests• Can author and maintain tests without writing code or can extend tests using .NET• Can run within Visual Studio or through automation (e.g., a build) Test development and maintenance from within Visual Studio
  • Supported Platforms• Supported (2012 RTM) – Windows Forms 2.0+ • Partially Supported – WPF 3.5+ – MFC – SharePoint – Dynamix (Ax) 2012 Client – Internet Explorer 8.0, 9.0 – Citrix / Terminal Services – Internet Explorer 10.0 – PowerBuilder (Desktop) – Dynamix CRM web client • Unsupported – Internet Explorer < 8.0• Supported (2012 Update 1) – Silverlight – Google Chrome 21+ – Flash/Java – Firefox 15+ – SAP – Microsoft Office• Unsupported but may work – Apple Safari – Windows Win32 – Opera
  • Third-Party Support
  • Agenda• Coded UI Test Overview• Recording Coded UI Tests• Adding Test Validation• Writing your own code• Best Practices
  • Creating Coded UI Tests Action Recordingfrom Manual Tests Visual Studio Test Builder Coded UI Test Visual Studio (Hand Coded)
  • Option 1: Based on Existing Tests Define Define Capture Automate Rqts Tests Tests Tests• Using Microsoft Test Manager (MTM)… – Analyst defines requirements – Tester defines manual test cases for the requirement – Tester runs test cases and records the steps• As needed, “Automation Tester” converts recorded steps into a Coded UI Test
  • AnnaBots
  • Option 2: Using the Coded UI Test Builder• Approach: – Click the record button – Perform the steps in your test target – Click the generate code button – Repeat to generate more methods for the test – Show recorded steps to delete missteps
  • DEMONSTRATION• Converting Test Cases• Recording tests with the Coded UI Test Builder
  • Option 3: Author Tests using .NET• Hand-code in .NET, without any additional assistance• Utilize one of the Coded UI-based community frameworks: – CUITe (Coded UI Test Enhanced) • Authored by Microsoft employees but not a „product‟ • Uses its own tooling to maintain a separate UI object repository • Improves code maintainability • Browser-based only • Currently only supported on Visual Studio 2010 • Maintained on CodePlex: http://cuite.codeplex.com/ – Code First Coded UI • Led by Microsoft employees but not a „product‟ • Pure code – does not use an object repository • Installable via NuGet • Uses Scaffolding approach to generate tests • Browser-based only • Currently only supported on Visual Studio 2010 • Maintained on CodePlex: http://codeduicodefirst.codeplex.com/
  • Agenda• Coded UI Test Overview• Recording Coded UI Tests• Adding Test Validation• Writing your own code• Best Practices
  • Validation• Use the Coded UI Test Builder to add assertions• Drag the crosshairs to a target control• Bundle assertions into methods called from the test Click to add assertion Select a property Generate a method to record the assertion(s)
  • DEMONSTRATION• Adding Assertions (Verification/Validation)
  • Agenda• Coded UI Test Overview• Recording Coded UI Tests• Adding Test Validation• Writing your own code• Best Practices and References
  • The Primary Components• Test Class (e.g., MyTest.cs) – A .NET Coded UI Test class containing one or more Test Methods.• Test Method – An individual automated test case inside a Test Class.• Recorded Method – Code which actually automates the UI and performs assertions. (Do not change this code!)• UIMap – An XML designer file and related generated classes containing the recorded methods.
  • Overriding Generated Properties[TestMethod]public void CodedUITestMethod1(){ this.UIMap.OpenCalc(); this.UIMap.AddThreeAndTwo(); this.UIMap.VerifySumExpectedValues.UITxtDisplayEditText = "5"; this.UIMap.VerifySum(); this.UIMap.CloseCalc();} Hand-coded to change the “Recorded Methods” expected value for the VerifySum created using the UI Test recorded method. There are many Builder. other overrides made available to you in the generated code.
  • The APIMicrosoft.VisualStudio.TestingTools.UITesting:• UITestControl• Keyboard – SendKeys• Mouse• Playback.PlaybackSettings… – DelayBetweenActions – MatchExactHierarchy – SearchInMinimizedWindows – SearchTimeout – ThinkTimeMultiplier – WaitForReadyLevel – WaitForReadyTimeout
  • DEMONSTRATION• UIMap Editor
  • Agenda• Coded UI Test Overview• Recording Coded UI Tests• Adding Test Validation• Writing your own code• Best Practices
  • Best Practices• Create each test case as a sequence of Recorded Methods.• Use multiple UI Maps to separate areas o the application.• Use meaningful test method names.• Try to limit the length of each recorded method to less than 10 actions.• Use meaningful UI control names in the application under test.• Do not edit the UIMap.Designer.cs file.• Use the Coded UI Test Builder and UI Control Locator whenever possible.
  • Summary• Coded UI Test Overview• Recording Coded UI Tests• Adding Test Validation• Writing your own code• Best Practices
