How to perform the CodedUI testing in WinForms TreeViewAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TreeViewAdv

CodedUI testing

You can perform the Coded UI Test (CUIT) in the TreeViewAdv can be used for testing purposes.


The Essential Tools TreeViewAdv control has basic level of Coded UI automation testing support. The Coded UI functionality can be tested from VS2010 or above with Ultimate or Premium version. TreeViewAdv supports Coded UI from Syncfusion Essential Studio version v9.1.0.20. Refer to the following steps to provide Coded UI support in the TreeViewAdv.

Create a Coded UI test project:

CUIT should contain the coded UI test project. If your application does not contain the CUIT project, create a new project. In the Solution Explorer, on the shortcut menu of the solution, choose Add, New Project, and then select either Visual Basic or Visual C#. Next, choose Test, Coded UI Test.

In case, the Coded UI test project does not appear on Visual Studio, you may be using the version that does not support CUIT. To create CUIT, you need to use Visual Studio Enterprise edition.

Adding Coded UI test file:

The CUIT file is generated automatically, when creating the Coded UI test project. To add another test file, choose shortcut menu of the CUIT project, point to add, and then choose Coded UI test.

Testing application with the Generated Coded UI Tests:

You can test the application with the generated CUIT method.

1. Add a TestMethod called CodedUITestMethod1.


public void CodedUITestMethod1()
    // Generates code for this test. Select "Generate Code for Coded UI Test" from the shortcut menu and select one of the menu items.


<TestMethod> _
Public Sub CodedUITestMethod1()
       'Generates code for this test. Select "Generate Code for Coded UI Test" from the shortcut menu and select one of the menu items.
End Sub

2. Build and run the application that has already been configured. You can also open the CUIT builder with the following steps.

3. Right click the body of the CodedUITestMethod and then select Generate Code for Coded UI Test -> Use CUIT builder as shown in the following screenshot:
