Running Xamarin.UITest code in MacOS for Android/iOS Operating System

In our last post we discussed how to run Xamarin.UITest code using Xamarin Test Recorder in MacOS. In this post we will discuss how to work with Xamarin.UITest with our CrossPlatform framework that we created in our course “Mobile Automation testing with Xamarin.UITest” in Udemy.

Here is the complete video on how to run Xamarin.UITest code in MacOS for both Android and iOS application

Here is the code snippet of the above video to switch with different platform

Selenium PageFactory does not work in .NET Core 2.0

In this post we will discuss one of the recent burning issue with Selenium PageFactory which does not work in .NET Core 2.0 framework.

Selenium 3.6.0 and 3.7.0 are the first official package to natively support .Net Standard 2.0 as opposed to earlier version which even though works in .NET Core 2.0 framework, will still see warnings in references as shown below

 

But the problem now with Selenium 3.6.0 and Selenium 3.7.0 is its missing one of the most important Class PageFactory used for Page Object Model and Page Navigation, which we can literally see from the Object browser of visual studio in comparison with .NET framework 4.7

 

Here is the change log of Selenium 3.6.0

Xamarin Test Recorder in MacOS for iOS/Android mobile automation

In this post we are going to discuss recording Xamarin.UITest Test for iOS mobile application running in MacOS via Xamarin Test Recorder.

Xamarin Test Recorder

The Xamarin Test Recorder reduces the effort and the time it takes to create automated UI tests that can be submitted to Xamarin Test Cloud as well as local testing running via Xamarin.UITest in Visual Studio for Mac 2017

Xamarin Test Recorder is the first ever tool in mobile automation testing space which gives automation testers to

  1. Record the test
  2. Export the test as clipboard 
  3. Run the test 
  4. Export the test on Xamarin Test cloud (with very minimal configurations)

Most of the above options are already discussed in lot more detailed in the course https://www.udemy.com/xamarin-uitest

Here is the complete video of the above discussion.

Running ASP.Net MVC application on RaspberryPi 3 with .Net Core 2

In our last post we discussed running console application with .Net core 2. In this post we will extend the concept even further by running an ASP.Net MVC application on Raspberry Pi 3 with .Net Core 2

You can see we will run an full blow ASP.Net application on Windows 10 IoT core, which is really awesome !

Here is the complete video discussing the concept

Make sure you don’t forget to turn off <MvcRazorCompileOnPublish>false</MvcRazorCompileOnPublish> 

Here is the complete project in GitHub of ExecuteAutomation

Running Chrome in headless mode with Selenium C#

In this post we are going to discuss about running Chrome in headless mode with Selenium C#

Chrome headless

Headless Chrome is a way to run Chrome browser without the actual browser UI being spawned. Essentially its running Chrome without chrome! It brings all modern web platform features provided by Chromium and the Blink rendering engine to the command line and automation testing tool such as Selenium in our case

Where is it useful ?

  • A headless browser is a great tool for automated testing and server environments where you don’t need a visible UI shell.
  • And again its not a completely new technology, since there are other big players in this area such as
    • PhantomJS
    • HTMLUnitDriver

So when is Chrome Headless available ?

  • Chrome Headless is supported from Chrome 59.x and above.
  • The current stable version for Windows 10 is Chrome 60.x
  • ChromeDriver v2.30 and above supports headless mode

What changes should I make in my Existing Selenium test ?

Working with Functions, Anonymous and Arrow functions in Typescript

In our last post we discussed how to work with Variable, Enums and Arrays in Typescript. In this post we will discuss working with different types of functions

Functions

Functions are the fundamental building block of any applications in JavaScript. They’re how you build up layers of abstraction, mimicking classes, information hiding, and modules. In TypeScript, while there are classes, namespaces, and modules, functions still play the key role in describing how to do things. TypeScript also adds some new capabilities to the standard JavaScript functions to make them easier to work with

Function Parameters

  1. Parameter with types
  2. Rest parameters
  3. Default parameters

Parameters with Types

This function looks something like this

Rest Parameters

Default Parameters

Anonymous Functions

Functions which don’t have Name/identifiers are considered as Anonymous functions. These functions are dynamic and called during runtime

Arrow Functions

Working with Variables, Enums and Arrays with Typescript

In our last post we discussed an introduction and installation of Typescript, in this post we will discuss how to work with Variables, Enums and Arrays with Typescript.

Working with Variables

There are different types available in Typescript which are almost available in JS like

  1. Number
  2. String
  3. Boolean
  4. Any
  5. void
  6. Null

Variable Declaration

Declarations of variable can be done with following in Typescript

  1. let
  2. const
  3. var

Working with Arrays and Enums

Enums allow us to define a set of named numeric constants. An enum can be defined using the enum keyword.

Arrays

Inserting an value in to an array can be done something like this
