Update on Coded UI Test support for Silverlight


Whenever we talk about platform coverage for UI automation one of the frequent requests is support for Silverlight app testing. We have been hard at work trying to cater to this need and I wanted to update you all on where we are with this effort and provide a roadmap.

We are working on adding support for Silverlight controls for “Fast forward for manual testing” and “Coded UI Test”. The focus is on line-of-business applications built with Silverlight 4 for both in-browser and on the desktop. The initial investigation is in progress and we are working with the Silverlight team to close on the overall design. We are planning to release a CTP version of a plugin by Q2CY2010. This will be delivered out of band to active MSDN subscribers (Test Professional, Premium or Ultimate) only.

We are establishing the final release timeline and will let you know of that in one of my future updates.

    Does CodedUI support silverlight now ?. If the support is still not around the corner , TestComplete has good support to SilverLight . We are planning to shift to TestComplete to test our suite of application.

    What about the support for Sliverlight destop applications ? . No support for silverlight thick client automation leaves us with no option but to use TestComplete.
