  • Hi,

    If ‘custom attribute’ means a custom property of a control, moreover the custom property is exposed for CodedUI, then you use this property to search the control. You can drag the crosshair on the control to check if the custom attribute is exposed for CodedUI.

    If the custom property is not exposed for CodedUI, then you need follow this article: Enable Coded UI Testing of Your Controls to make CodedUI recognize your control’s custom property.
