About Robot Support for .NET Applications
Robot provides comprehensive support for testing applications constructed with
Robot provides enhanced support for recording GUI functional test scripts for
applications constructed with Visual Studio.NET Windows Forms controls. You can
use Robot's Microsoft .NET extension to test these applications.
You can also use Robot to record and play back GUI functional test scripts for the
HTML generated by ASP.NET WebForms controls. You can use Robot's HTML
extensions for testing these applications.
You can use Robot for your GUI Test automation of .NET applications with most
.NET-compliant programming, including C#, Visual Basic.NET and C++.
Results are best when developers have used the Windows Forms controls included
with Visual Studio.NET.
With its Object Testing technology, Robot examines data and properties that are not
visible to the user, which enables Robot to:
Recognize Visual Studio.NET Windows Forms objects, including objects that
have windows associated with them (such as EditBoxes) and objects that are
"painted" on the containing form (such as Labels).
