UI Testing the Visual Studio Extension

Published: 3/5/2016 5:25:47 PM

We are releasing the DotVVM 1.0 in a few weeks. In the meantime, we have almost completed the Visual Studio commercial extension. If you are curious how we test such complicated stuff, here is a nice video of our build agent running the UI tests through TeamCity.

We have built a simple framework which can control our Visual Studio extension remotely. In our tests, we can open a solution, load some file, type a text or press some key. We can also retrieve the text on the current line or detect whether the IntelliSense is displayed and whether it contains correct items.
