Visual Studio Visible Docking Targets Nightly Test Case


Description

If you are unfamiliar with Tool Window Docking or Dock Targets, check out my post about it at New Window Management Features for Visual Studio 2005.

Nightly Scenarios

  1. Verify all 5 IDE-Center and all 4 IDE-Side Docking Targets appear when dragging a tool window around the empty center of the IDE
  2. Verify all 4 IDE-Side and 5 Output Window-Center Docking Targets appear when dragging a tool window over the Output Window in a docked state
  3. Verify all 4 IDE-Side and 5 Property Browser-Center Docking Targets appear when dragging a tool window over the Property Browser in dockable, but not docked state

    Can you discuss whether these tests are automated? and if so, can you talk about how they are automated? I have a WinForms / .NET 2.0 app that I’m designing tests for and would very much like to automate some tests that are akin to your visible docking targets test.

    Yes, these tests are automated. I was planning to write an article on using test hooks, so i’ll use the visible docking targets as an example.

    That would be fantastic!
