One of the realities about corporate politics (I hate to say it, but it's a big part of our job) is that everyone wants to put out the image that they're open minded and willing to do what's best for the company, but in reality most people want to go with what is safest for their career and with what they know and are comfortable with. < tangent > If ...

In the platform support section: Windows Internet Explorer 9 Important Windows Internet Explorer 9 is only supported if you have installed Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 The following scenarios are supported if you have installed Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack ...

I have figured out how to accomplish this and I will post it here since there has been a lot of views of the question but no answer. In test manager, select the Organize tab. Then select the Shared Steps Manager. Create a shared step and pace a parameter in it, e.g. '@Location', enter the URL you wish to navigate to in the parameter at the bottom of the ...

The insertion of Thread.Sleep() is typically indicative of a race condition in your test and your test is running out of sync with the thing is it testing. One suggestion may be to insert a polling loop to wait for the redirect, or an event to indicate the redirect has happened. See http://www.testingmentor.com/imtesty/?p=652 and read the comments for ...

As I understand it (I'm not that experienced with MSTest/Test Manager yet), without the Lab Management module the way to do this is to install SysInternals to each of your target environments as well as your master/controller environment, then use a batch file that runs the tests. The basic setup is a batch file to run the tests - you can call MSTest from ...

This isn't possible without some serious messing around with the TFS API right now. Part of the problem is that internally test cases are stored as work items where test plans and test results are stored in completely different parts of the system with complex relationship structures. As a result, the built in query engine can't access them. ...

You've actually got several options here. The key is that Microsoft Test Manager has to integrate with Team Foundation Server: if you can connect your Selenium tests to Team Foundation Server you can use the Associated Automation field in the test case to link your Selenium test code to MTM test cases. Team Foundation Server plugin for Eclipse: this is an ...

Actually not. Microsoft Test Manager is a simple T. management tool which allows you to run a Test case and report a bug into TFS, built on the top of Visual studio. It would be probably possible to plug it in, but usually there is nothing like this. There are several test frameworks and automated test tools build on the top of visual studio as Ranorex, so ...

You can pause the test run, then save and close. All the attachments you've created to that point will be saved. When you're ready to come back to the test, you'll need to return to the point you left and located the unfinished run (Test > Analyze Test Runs), then Resume. You should be able to pick up where you left off.

I use Microsoft Test Manager and find that I center my test plans around releases. It might be helpful to have a separate Regression Test Plan with suites set up by product area that can be updated as code updates and so new test cases can be added as new features are implemented in existing product areas (or new product areas are added). There is some ...

Microsoft Test Manager (MTM) in Visual Studio 2010 does not have this ability and I am not aware of any plugins/patches that allow this to happen. Unfortunately, it does not appear that MTM in Visual Studio 2012 will have this feature either - ...

The following steps may help to get QC working in IE9 with Windows 7. Not quite the same environment, but its worth a shot. Adjust your user account control settings to 'Never notify'. This requires a reboot. Disable any proxy account settings that you may have configured in Internet Options. Try installing the QC explorer app. It is a tool that HP ...

I'd suggest you approach this as follows: Work Out What The Font Button Is Supposed To Do Open MS Word, search the online help for "font". Read the entries related to fonts. Have a bit of a play around in Word trying various settings. Write Some Tests To Check If The Font Button Does What It's Supposed To Do Use what you learned about the font button ...

I was able to accomplish this by writing a custom TestClassExtensionAttribute and then calling a custom ITestMethodInvoker from the TestExtensionExecution. I answered a similar question on SO about this: http://stackoverflow.com/a/14673329/573218 I have posted the code on GitHub and am working on cleaning it up a bit: ...

If I understand you situation correctly you have a data-driven test, and you want to be able to run that data-driven test using the arguments in the 'datafile' against one or more services with varying locations. One approach may be to read in a file that lists the desired services (location) at runtime into an array, then loop through each element ...

"it will extend the time a program spends in development" Initially, this may be true but as the software matures and becomes more complex, the TDD approach will actually reduce the time a program spends in development since the code-base will be more robust, easier to maintain and less prone to bugs. Once you have good unit test code coverage and a full ...
