Getting Started with White

I've recently decided to dive into the world of Project White and MS UI Automation, since this is relevant to my current project. I had to create a tutorial for a team to get set up to use white to begin with, so I decided that I could share that tutorial with everyone else as well. It goes into some detail about Visual Studio as well, and is intended for an audience that has not necessarily done automated testing through Visual Studio before.

The tutorial uses MS Visual Studio, C#, White, and UI Spy to create an *extremely* simple test. My intent was just to show how to set it up. Next time, I will describe starting to write tests, including common functions in White and writing good tests.

Please, please offer feedback. I would love to be sure that I am doing things the best way possible!

very interesting, thanks! Curious to hear what you think of While. I'm still trying to find time to do a little more with the UI Automation Framework directly... but if I get frustrated with it's limits, will switch over & use this to get started. Thanks!

Good Read I just recently started looking at white for a possible project I'm going to. this and the reference articles def helped me get a good idea of how the framework "works".

Perfect. I am just starting to use C# and need to learn to write scripts for UI Automation for the project our team has started. Much Thanks!
