Test Recording

There are two ways to initiate recording. You can either launch a new browser instance with the recording toolbar attached, or you can attach the recording toolbar to an existing browser instance (or WPF application).

Launch New Recording Browser

  1. Click the Record button or press CTRL+R.

    Click Record Button                     VS 2012 Record Button

  2. Choose the recording browser.

    Select Recording Browser

If you enable Save my choice for the future, the Record button in Test Studio Standalone will display the icon for the default browser.

Default Browser Indicator

You can select a different recording browser later from the Record button drop-down.

Change recording browser                      Select Recording Browser VS 2012



Attach to Existing Instance

Click the drop-down arrow on the Record button to see a list of available browser instances or WPF applications. Select one to attach the recorder to that instance.


Connect to Existing Recording Browser

 Note: You cannot connect to an existing Silverlight Out-of-Browser application for Out-of-Browser tests.

Stop Recording

To end recording, simply close the IE window or WPF application that has the recording toolbar attached.
