I have a Windows Application developed in Visual Studio 2008 which I have to automate the UI functionality. I have already done some Web Performance Test and Load test using Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate version's VSTS Tool. But, does this VSTS tool supports for automating the Windows application.
I tried recording the application using Coded UI Test which records and playbacks based on the coordinates. Is there any way as we can playback without the coordinates instead hardcoding it with some object names of the application controls. Please refer me URLs if any to automate the windows application.
Thanks In Advance.

How did the coded UI testing work for you? CUIT doe NOT rely on coordinates to locate controls, only to determine relative to the control where to click. Here is a quick post on CUIT control search algorithm: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/balagans/archive/2009/12/28/9941582.aspx
here is why you see coordinates in the generated code: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mathew_aniyan/archive/2012/03/16/faq-why-are-we-using-coordinate-based-actions-in-coded-ui-test.aspx
