To start let me be completely transparent and state that I do work at Microsoft. However, in my role I nor my team uses Coded UI, but I do teach the basics of coded UI in some of my classes. Rather than comparing the features of each tool set I would recommend including other factors in your decision such as: As a general rule of thumb we try to minimize ...

My transcribed debugging session is below - the short answer is that Compare will fail if there are unaccepted revision changes in the comparison document. Details: Here are some clues and potential answers. I reproduced the error I made a copy of the first doc and compared it with itself – that worked. I made a copy of the second file and compared it ...

In my - admittedly limited so far - experience, I've found that TestComplete's keyword tests are useful for rapid automation of self-contained, small, highly modular test items. I have yet to find anything that keyword tests can do that coded tests can't, and I keep finding new things that coded tests do easily that keyword tests either can't do, or can't do ...

I have used Coded UI Tests, but used Selenium Webdriver much more extensively. In my answer I will completely ignore the record and playback capabilities of both because I would not advocate using either except to familiarize yourself with the tool. In addition, I won't comment on features that one has vs the other because they are very nearly identical. ...

Well Coded UI Tests are hardly "new", though they were new to me as a framework when I was starting to use them early on. I put them in the category of "record and playback" but with extensibility they do add more on once you are able to get some abstraction in your tests and be able to modify the scripts to become more like a proper coded and programmed ...

You can use Sys.Process("TestComplete").FileVersionInfo to get the full version number, e.g. 9.0.1312.7, or you can use Sys.Process("TestComplete").FileVersionInfo.MajorPart, MinorPart, BuildPart and PrivatePart to get the corresponding parts of the version number.

Why: Windows API methods are used to get the computers list. There may be network policy restrictions or issues that prevent some nodes to appear on the list Windows returns. What I would check is whether the unavailable nodes appear under the Network node in Windows Explorer. If they are there, but not visible in TC's dialogs, this would be strange. What ...

I have just checked the script extension and the JScript example in TestComplete 9.0 - they work correctly. The script extensions format for TestComplete 9 is exactly the same as that of TestComplete 8, so things were expected to work. For data encrypting, the script extension's code uses the .NET Framework functions, which means that the code is expected ...

The most basic answer can be found in the help documentation on property checkpoints or object checkpoints. However, from there it depends upon whether or not your control exposes a property that specifies the restrictions you place on the control. If such a property exists, it's easy then to create one of those checkpoints on the property and call the ...

In my instance I have been doing Coded UI for about 2 years and have found that Coded UI does more in the background for you than some other products. i have also used QTP and Rational Robot and some free tools. The default Object and step repository is a bit of a pain and I would recomend abstracting it out, mainly because it tries too hard to recognise ...

Firstly, the Fill.Color.B property value is a number, not a string, so you need to remove quotes around 0: Aliases.MyApp.BtnCalculationType.WaitProperty("Fill.Color.B", 0, 9999999) Secondly, Fill.Color.B is the color's blue component. You may need to also check the red, green and alpha components. To do this, you need to use a custom comparison instead of ...
