  • We are releasing Manual Testing tools for Metro style apps using Html in Visual Studio 11. The feature is described in the //build talk - http://channel9.msdn.com/events/BUILD/BUILD2011/TOOL-530T. This feature supports touch gestures also.


    Coded UI Tests for touch and metro style apps will *not* be available in Visual Studio 11. It is very high on our product backlog.

  • Hi,

    As coded UI doesn't support record-reply style of testing automation for Metro style window apps, are there any api's available in VS 11 to automate testing. is it possible? We are looking for metro style app testing automation since longtime.
