Overview

This project delivers practical and scenario based sample code and guidance for the Visual Studio Coded UI Microsoft Word Add-in, which extends the Coded UI feature support to Microsoft Word documents.image_thumb4

Without this Add-in, the Coded UI feature has the following shortcomings:

  • Can only reference Word menu and ribbon controls
  • Can only reference the screen location of mouse and keyboard actions within a document
  • Does not support assertions within a document

The add-in also provides the following functionalities for Coded UI:

  • Document location referencing of mouse and keyboard actions
  • Assertions on contiguous document selection

To get started, grab the Hand-On Lab, which steps you through building the solution and using it.

  • Wow, it's really awesome! keep up the good work!

  • I am unfamiliar with the whole idea of Coded UI as related to Word documents. Can you point me to some reference material? I thought Coded UI tests were for testing Windows Forms apps, web apps, WPF apps. But are you saying you can test Word documents?

  • @David, this add-in sample shows how you can enable support for running Coded UI tests against Office Word. If the documentation that ships with the sample, or the vsarcodeduiword.codeplex.com site is not enough, I recommend that you start a discussion thread on vsarcodeduiword.codeplex.com/discussions.
