This project delivers practical and scenario based sample code and guidance for the Visual Studio Coded UI Microsoft Word Add-in, which extends the Coded UI feature support to Microsoft Word documents.image

Without this Add-in, the Coded UI feature has the following shortcomings:

  • Can only reference Word menu and ribbon controls
  • Can only reference the screen location of mouse and keyboard actions within a document
  • Does not support assertions within a document

The add-in also provides the following functionalities for Coded UI:

  • Document location referencing of mouse and keyboard actions
  • Assertions on contiguous document selection

To get started, grab the Hand-On Lab, which steps you through building the solution and using it.
