MS Office Object Identification by VSTS
The UI application is a managed COM add-in for Microsoft Excel.
Technologies used to design the app:
- Managed COM Add-Ins for Microsoft Office 2003 and Office 2007
- .NET Framework 2.0
- .NET Web Services
- Windows Forms
- Visual Studio 2005
The application to be automated is an Excel Add in, using which a user can interact with the data sources and transfer the documents on the excel sheet. It retrieves data from the Client server to excel work book using a Web service
Now we need to perform following actions on it.
• Creating Connection
• Editing Connection
• Refreshing the Data on excel
• Removing an object from Data Source
• Rearranging objects on the excel sheet
• Deleting objects on the excel sheet
• Saving the excel sheet for future use
As this application extensively involves operations on the COM objects placed in an excel sheet, we would like to know if VSTS could provide any support for this kind of application testing being a MS product.
If not could anyone please provide some material on VSTS which could be useful for testing MS applications.
Re: MS Office Object Identification by VSTS
You would need to write these tests as unit tests.
Unfortunately at this time, VSTS does not support gui testing, this will be available in the next version of VSTS, Rosario.
