I am pretty new to, "GUI Test Automation”, hence, seek your help at this juncture. At the moment, I am being asked
to write a utility that will:
First read all the window controls on the form and store them in the excel.
Enter test data in the worksheet created against the controls that i need to automate
And later,READ (Test) input in the excel worksheet and set values to controls on my WinFrom(kind of-Automate or simulate input entry)
So far ,I have been able to automate many controls using White Automation framework which is a layer above Microsoft UI Automation.However,I
am not able to find support for all the other controls,e.g.
Well now ,I think of using Microsoft UI Automation for automating rest of the controls. There are couple of queries
popping up in my mind which i need to confirm from experts.
Firstly, Am I right when i think in this direction?
Secondly, I feel a requirement to use both White and Microsoft UI automation so that any one of the two can provide me a
solution for a particular control. Could anybody please suggest any pattern, that can assist me utilizing both efficiently.
Here is what I am trying to achieve (I appreciate your suggestions in this regard)
Launch the application under test from my tool (load assembly)
Capture all the controls and their respective handles ,insert them into an excel sheet
Enter test data in the excel sheet manually against these controls (making it sort of testcase doc)
Then my code Sets these controls on my form after reading from excel
