  • Just to be more specific, UIAutomation is an accessiblity technology. CodedUI Test is a test automation framework which supports various technologies like Web, Winforms, WPF, etc. It internally uses UIAutomation for certain plugins such as WPF to access the control properties/events, etc. More about CodedUI Test in the link provided above by Silviu. That's a good starting point.
