We already discussed hand coding Coded UI Test using WinControls in previous posts, in this post, we will discuss about hand coding CUIT with UITestControls.
  • We already discussed about UITestControl, stating this class is the base class for all the technologies like WinControl, HtmlControl etc
  • UITestControl provides properties and methods which are generic to controls across technologies
Here is the complete video of the topic discuss Here is the code snippet discuss in the above video

public static void Button8Click()
    //Instance for WinWindow
    UITestControl calcWindow = new UITestControl();
    calcWindow.TechnologyName = "MSAA";
    calcWindow.SearchProperties[UITestControl.PropertyNames.Name] = "Calculator";
    calcWindow.SearchProperties[UITestControl.PropertyNames.ClassName] = "CalcFrame";

    UITestControl btn8 = new WinButton(calcWindow);
    btn8.SearchProperties[UITestControl.PropertyNames.Name] = "8";

    UITestControl btn9 = new WinButton(calcWindow);
    btn9.SearchProperties[UITestControl.PropertyNames.Name] = "9";

    UITestControl btnAdd = new WinButton(calcWindow);
    btnAdd.SearchProperties[UITestControl.PropertyNames.Name] = "Add";

    UITestControl btn2 = new WinButton(calcWindow);
    btn2.SearchProperties[UITestControl.PropertyNames.Name] = "2";

    UITestControl btn3 = new WinButton(calcWindow);
    btn3.SearchProperties[UITestControl.PropertyNames.Name] = "3";

    UITestControl btnEquals = new WinButton(calcWindow);
    btnEquals.SearchProperties[UITestControl.PropertyNames.Name] = "Equals";
