How To: Use CUITe

This is Syed Aslam Basha here from Relationship experience division (RXD) team.


CUITe is coded UI test enhanced framework available at useful for test UI automation. The advantages of CUITe is reduced code, better readability and maintainability. Let me show how to use CUITe.

  • Download and install from
  • Launch CUITe_ObjectRecorder
  • Enter website address to test
  • image
  • Click on record
  • Click on the controls in web page
  • Click on Code button in the toolbar
  • It will generate the code as  shown below

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITesting;
    using CUITe.Controls.HtmlControls;

    namespace $ProjectNameSpace.$ObjectRepository
           public class LoginWindow : CUITe_BrowserWindow
            public new string sWindowTitle = "Server Login";
            public CUITe_HtmlEdit txtusername = new CUITe_HtmlEdit("Id=username");
            public CUITe_HtmlPassword txtpassword = new CUITe_HtmlPassword("Id=password");
            public CUITe_HtmlInputButton btnLogIn = new CUITe_HtmlInputButton("Value=Log In");


  • Create test project.
  • Record a normal Coded UI test to get all references done automatically.
  • Add reference to “CUITe.dll”  from the install path. Do not copy and reference.
  • Create objectrepository folder
  • Add a class file and rename it to LoginWindow
  • Copy paste the above code in a LoginWindow.cs file which will act as object repository. Update the name space and class name appropriately.
  • Can have inheritance work for object repository classes (move common stuff to parent classes for better organization and modularity).
  • In test methods you can call the objects as


LoginWindow.txtpassword .SetText(password);

LoginWindow.btnLogIn .Click();


1. Object recorder now only works for html/web.

2. Object recorder only records the object/control definitions, not actions.

  1. Jeremy says:

    The output of the CUITe project is a myproject.dll. How can I use that dll in another application to initiate a test that has been set up in my CUITe proeject?

  2. Hi Jeremy,

    Its like object repository you should create test methods to calling these objects/methods in sequence of your test case.
