CodedUI with Dockingwindows

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Posted 10 years ago by Marcel Goeller

We have the problem with the docking windows in Actipro, that the AutomationID is always a new generated one after restart.

So it's not possible to use CodedUI for automated UI tests, because here we need a constant id.


Do you have a suggestion how this problem can be handled, or how to use CodedUI with the Docking Windows?

Hi Marcel,

If your containers, etc. are set up in XAML, I believe you could set the AutomationID in XAML for each container.  Give each container you want to test a specific ID value.

You could probably also do the same thing via code-behind by iterating the DockSite's structure and setting the AutomationProperties.AutomationId attached property on each container.
