UI Test Plugin for Silverlight Applications

Mathew Aniyan MSFT

Using the Microsoft Visual Studio UI Test plugin for Silverlight, you can create Coded UI Tests or action recordings for Silverlight applications. Action recordings let you fast forward through steps in a manual test using Microsoft Test Manager. Coded UI Tests let you record actions, generate code and play back user interface tests using Microsoft Visual Studio.

This plugin supports Silverlight 4 & 5 applications hosted in Internet Explorer versions 8, 9 & 10. It requires Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 RC.

A few members of the product team got together and built this plugin as an off-hours project. It is not an official Microsoft release. We will monitor the Q and A section on the Visual Studio Galley site for feedback and queries.


For more details and to download the plugin visit Visual Studio Gallery.
