Create a Silverlight Out-of-Browser Test (Standalone)
- If you are testing a Silverlight In-Browser web application, we recommend treating it as a standard Web Test with no additional configuration.
- See here for what constitutes Out-of-Browser.
- Once a Silverlight Out-of-Browser application is configured for recording, Test Studio modifies its shortcut to point directly to the application's location on disk. This replaces the Microsoft "offline://" notation. The side effect of this is that your application will not detect that it is running in Out-of-Browser mode and code must be written in the application to work around this limitation.
- Test Studio does not support the Web Browser control in Silverlight Out-of-Browser applications.
- Launch Test Studio.
- Click Create New Project, name the project, and click OK.
- Right click the project node and click Add New Test.
- Select Web Test, name the test, press Enter, and double click it to open it.
- Click the Out-Of-Browser icon in the Silverlight ribbon.
- Check the Configure this test to run against a Silverlight application box in Out-Of-Browser options.
- Browse for the Local Application Directory or drag and drop a link to your Silverlight application.
- Select Silverlight Out-of-Browser under Recording Host.
- Click Record to launch the out-of-browser app with the recording toolbar docked at the top.
- Notice that steps are added to the test as actions are taken within the application.
- Close the application to stop recording.
