On the 15th Nov 2010, Microsoft has released VS2010 Feature Pack 2, and I was waiting for a while for it. Now I tried it on our complex Silverlight 4 LOB Application.
1/ .... well, well, ... here is my first go :
We can record a new Coded UI Test for Silverlight :
2/ My second try was on a small Business project :
Seams to work fine and to record... up until the point when I click on "Generate Code"
"cannot generate code because you are in debug mode" !!
3/ Let's try again !
Yes it works... but only on a small project, and with few crashes...
4/ Conclusion of my first 'go'
Whereas my first trial of TELERIK WebUI Test Studio with Silverlight was fully satisfactory (with a large Silverlight project with MVVM and PRISM patterns),
my first go with MS Coded UI with Silverlight was a bit disappointing even if it offers more integration with the TFS Software factory.
5/ My second trial : Remove all references to the DLL, excet for 1 project in our MVVM PRISM4 project (i.e. I can record only one screen)
