kandi X-RAY | FlaUI Summary
FlaUI is a .NET library which helps with automated UI testing of Windows applications (Win32, WinForms, WPF, Store Apps, ...). It is based on native UI Automation libraries from Microsoft and therefore kind of a wrapper around them. FlaUI wraps almost everything from the UI Automation libraries but also provides the native objects in case someone has a special need which is not covered (yet) by FlaUI. Some ideas are copied from the UIAComWrapper project or TestStack.White but rewritten from scratch to have a clean codebase.

I'm writing some integration tests for an app that monitors certain windows forms apps to see if those apps are running or crashed.
One of the requirements is to identify if it's showing error window or information window and act accordingly.
To mock the case where an information window is showing, I created a test app (as shown above) with a button that would show some information window when clicked.
This is how my test looks like:...

I tried the way @stuartd suggested in the comment, but unfortunately that didn't work out as I ran into the same issue of not going anywhere when the
.Invoke() method is (called until manual intervention is made).
So I looked into this awesome nuget package called FlaUI by Roman Roemer and things went pretty smooth afterwards.
This is how my test looks now:
Is it possible to test views with FlaUI?
I have usercontrols with views and tabs on it and not windows. With windows you can do this:
But how can I do that with views?...
ANSWERAnswered 2021-Jan-05 at 15:56
As usual I create special UI test application project with window and put my view to this window. Then I just call Application.GetMainWindow. It is supposed to create some window to test UI through UI Automation.
I'm working on a program and I need to capture the red area in the image below:
The problem is it should capture that part no matter what size the photoshop window is, so i can't hard code the coordinate.
I also tried inspect and FlaUInspect and they both get toggle between that area and full window area, also there are to automationId and the name is dynamic.
Since the ClassName is Photoshop I have tried the c# code below with flaui and doesn't work:...
ANSWERAnswered 2020-Dec-15 at 10:34
There is no ui automation frameworks for photoshop, flaui and inspect.exe don't work with photoshop, so i used the capture method to get a screenshot of photoshop window and then crop it.
this is the final code:

The property that works here is
IsOffScreen. The UIA framework provides this property as Visibility is a
WPF property and not
IsOffScreen returns True if the element is not currently on the screen else returns

As an exercise, I'm trying to automate typing RDP credentials using FlaUI. My OS is Windows 10.
I'm able to start mstsc.exe and type into this window:
But then I get this window and I can't find it anywhere:
It's not an mstsc window, even though it appears above it as a modal window: mstsc always has just one window. Apparently it's a window of "Credential Manager UI Host", but that process has... zero windows.
Even in task manager it's listed in the background tasks and not in the applications section. FlaUI Inspect doesn't see it at all.
By the way, this is my code:...
ANSWERAnswered 2020-Apr-02 at 16:36
It turns out it was just a matter of knowing the name of the "window", which is Credential Dialog Xaml Host; also, it can be found using FlaUI Inspect.
Once the mstsc part is done and the "Windows Security" window comes out, you can go on with this sample code:
I am facing an odd behaviour of the
Process class when accessing
MainWindowHandle in .NET Core (3.1).
Consider the following function:...
ANSWERAnswered 2020-Feb-22 at 12:34
It turns out this was caused by an issue with .NET Core itself. The
MainWindowHandle property would not be re-evaluated after the first attempt, no matter if it returned
When setting breakpoints, the only thing I was achieving was to delay the moment in which
MainWindowHandle was being read. I could have achieved the same with a longer
Thread.Sleep() call before that. In fact, 100 milliseconds was actually enough for Notepad in my case, but for the original WPF app I was testing I need about 1 second. Perhaps I was being too wary about debuggers in general.
I already submitted a pull request to fix this. In the meantime, if anybody is also affected by something similar, I would recommend replacing any
Refresh() call with
process = Process.GetProcessById(process.Id). This will return a new
Process instance pointing to the same process, and hence the
MainWindowHandle property can be re-evaluated without issues.
In my original example, it would look like this (reordered a bit to avoid an initial instance creation):

It is not TabItem it is DXTabItem. This is the type you should cast to.
