Overview of this book

Test Studio is Telerik's QA solution for automating your manual testing. With Test Studio's standalone edition or Visual Studio plugin, you can rule out the possibility of unreliable test execution and UI recognition, non indicative test results and reports, dispersed test repository, low code coverage, and unaffordable learning curves. With no code, this tool provides an intuitive IDE to effortlessly create maintainable tests. If you are looking for a solution to automate testing for your web, desktop, or mobile application, you can now benefit from Test Studio's rich automation features. "Learning Software Testing with Test Studio" will illustrate how to reliably automate test cases when it is time to relinquish manual testing habits. This book is all about less theory and more hands-on examples to present a complete manual and automated solution for your ASP .NET, WPF, Silverlight or iOS apps. This book gets you started directly with automation in Test Studio by exploiting its recording powers through series of concrete test cases built around the equipped applications. Each chapter starts with a typical automation problem which is then approached using Test Studio specialized automation features. You will learn how to create record and playback functional, performance, and load tests. Furthermore, we will see how to insert verification steps, logical constructs, convenient logging operations, and how to convert test scripts in order to implement keyword and data-driven architectures. To endow your tests with additional flexibility, each recorded automation feature will be approached from its coded perspective through the usage of the underlying ArtOfTest Test Studio automation library. This book also illustrates how Test Studio can automate pre-conditions, test result inputting, and the capturing of system states during manual test case execution in order to keep the tester's attention focused on the important details.

When Test Studio is installed, a plugin is added to Visual Studio, this section will exhibit how the previewed features in this chapter are integrated inside the Visual Studio IDE. The examples are also based on the File Comparer application.

Inside Visual Studio, the File Comparer solution contains only one WPF project. Test Studio projects can be added as any other project type by right-clicking on the solution node and choosing Add and then clicking on New Project. In the Add New Project window, select Telerik from the list displayed in the Installed Templates pane. Then expand the node and click on Test. Make sure that the .Net Framework 4 option is selected from the combobox at the top of the window:

Creating a new project inside Visual Studio

Two templates are displayed to give the user a choice to develop the application either in Visual Basic or C#. We are going to continue our examples in C#, so select Visual C# Test Studio Project and name the project...
