This post is the Third post out of Four that builds the Visual Studio 2010 Coded UI Test User Guide. See the first post: “Visual Studio 2010 Coded UI Test User Guide – Introduction” and the second post: “Visual Studio 2010 Coded UI Test User Guide – Create A Simple Coded UI Test”
On this post I will show how to create a Coded UI Test based on prerecorded Coded UI Test.
In the Microsoft Test Management (MTM) tool you run Test Plans with the Test Runner, In case that the “Action Log and Action Recording” collector is turned on the Test Runner will create a Coded UI Test in the background while running the Manual Test.
The recorded Coded UI Test is very simple and basic test that will not answer the Automation Test Effort requirements but its a start.
The Tester that is assigned on creating the Automated Tests can have a very good starting point using these prerecorded tests.
The way to do it is based on one of the posts I have already published that covers this section: “Creating A Coded UI Test From A Manual Recording In TFS 2010”
