Hi all,


A urgent question.
For the white project in the codeplex(UIA), we can easy use it to do the automatic testing for window form basic controls, but for the infragistics controls that we used currently , it only supports some simple controls like button, lable…, but for the controls as combox, datagrid view and so on, it seems that these controls are not exposed by UIAutomation, we can’t operate it easy.

Then, I want to confirm whether all the complex controls have implemented the Microsoft UI Automation provider interface to make the UI available to our screen reader,

Last, whether we must use TestAdvantage to make UI automation testing

Thank you every much
Wei Wei

Hello,

Infragistics controls cannot be recorded using the Microsoft UI Automation provider interface. In order to record scripts on an application using Infragistics controls, you must use TestAdvantage.

Further, it is necessary to match the version of TestAdvantage to the version of NetAdvantage used to build the application under test. For example, if the application was built using NetAdvantage 11.1, you will need to use TestAdvantage 11.1.

Greetings!

Does this mean that the Microsoft UI Automation tools are totally unsupported (and thus cannot be used at all outside of creating a custom plug-in)?  What I mean is, some unsupported controls can still be used by the MS tools via hand-coding (tho, yes, recording does not work).  There's a difference between needing a lot of hand-coding versus no interaction at all.

Also, is there anything that developers can do to help with this?  For example, with standard WPF controls, developers have ways of exposing the controls to the MS Test Tools.  Do you know of any such solution for the Infragistics controls?

Just exploring what my options are.  Any insight or input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much!!

Hi Wei,

WE are in the process of creating custom support for our Win Forms control on CodedUITest framework (i.e. a TestAdvantage for CodedUITest)

We don't yet have a release date for this but we are targeting Q2 of 2012. We should have beta build avaialbe in late Q1 of 2012 in case you are interested. you can contact our Sales then to get a copy of the beta build.

Regards,

Ammar

As I mentioned in my post, we are in the process of creating custom support for our controls on CodedUITest which will allow testers to record, replay, and verify what they need on Infragistics controls.

In the meantime you should be able to do manual scripting since all IG controls have implemented accessibility interfaces. However for some complex controls like Grid, DockManager and ToolbarsManager the accessibility interfaces will give the tester full control support.

If you are interested in trying the Beta of TestAdvantage for CodedUITest, please contact Sales in late Q1 of 2012

Regards,

Ammar

Hi Samir,

This forum is for Windows Forms control. You should post your question in the Silverlight forums. I'm not sure what level of support the Silverlight controls have.

Also, are you asking about Coded UI Tests? Or UI Automation? These are related, but they are not the same thing and you seem to be using them interchangeably.
