September 2017 is not a great month of mine personally, but to make it great, I am going to share more videos than any other month. So keep an eye on your YouTube notification, you should be getting it every day*, instead of the usual pattern of every other day
Curious about the topics of the month ?
We are going to discuss following topics in this month
- Xamarin.UITest cross-platform mobile automation testing
- ExecuteAutomation Reporting System and ExecuteAutomation TestHarness system
- C# for automation testing – C# 7.0 new features and more
- IoT new features and more..
Hope you will enjoy learning it !
I am very excited to announce that today we have released our 400th video in our ExecuteAutomation YouTube channel.
ExecuteAutomation YouTube channel is there for close to 2 years and 6 months now with over 16,000+ subscribers from across the globe. We have video series for different types of tools and technologies such as
Automation testing tools
DevOps and Microservices
Thank you once again for making this happen my thee.
In this post we are going to discuss about running Chrome in headless mode with Selenium C#
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 ?
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 ?
Here is the complete video of the above discussion Read more
In this article we will talk about running Selenium test with .Net core 2.0 Preview 2 using Visual Studio 2017 15.3
I am very happy and excited to write this article, since many of automation testers like you and me were waiting for this news and its finally happening !
Here is the System Requirement for running Selenium with .Net core
- Download .Net Core 2.0 Preview 2
- Download Visual Studio 2017 15.3
Once installed, you need to follow following steps
Create new Unit Test Project for .Net Core
Add following Nuget references to the project Read more
In this post, I am going to discuss about one of the important extension added in my Udemy course Automation framework development with Selenium C# (Advanced) which is custom configuration for selenium automation framework
Currently in our EAFramework discussed in the course we are using GlobalConfig.xml file to read information for our framework as one shown below
Well, the problem with the above configuration is, while working with EAFramework in remote machines to deploy the code via
- TFS or
- Running in remote machines on Azure
In this post we will discuss yet another useful feature introduced in NUnit 3.x where we can pass a parameter to NUnit test class of C# from Command Line Interface (CLI) using a new feature called –params
Starting NUnit 3.x, there is an most awaited option introduced for Nunit-console runner, which is passing parameters to test method(s) via CLI using –params
What’s the use case of this?
Consider a scenario something like this, Lets say we have to test application with multiple browsers and we somehow have to parameterize the BrowserType like Firefox,Chrome,IE
Then, we can do it via CLI and pass the parameter to the whole framework to run test based on the parameter (browser type) that we passed.
Here is the complete video of the above discussion
Here is the complete modified code
You can checkout the complete code from GitHub here
Thanks for reading the post and watching the video!!!
Please leave your comments and let me know if there is anything I should update in this post.
In this post we will discuss how to handle multiple assert in Selenium with Assert.multiple of NUnit 3.6, this is one of the most requested feature of NUnit.
Nunit 3.6 released by Jan 9th 2017 has number of notable improvement and features something like this
- .NET Standard 1.6 is now supported
- Adds support for Multiple Assert blocks
- Added the –params option to NUnitLite
- Theories now support Nullable enums
- Improved assert error messages to help differentiate differences in values
- Added warnings with Warn.If(), Warn.Unless() and Assert.Warn()
- Enabled Path, File and Directory Asserts/Contraints for .NET Core testing
- Added NonTestAssemblyAttribute for use by third-party developers to indicate that their assemblies reference the NUnit framework, but do not contain tests
Where is Assert.Multiple helpful ?
Consider a scenario something like this
Lets say we have to test multiple properties of an UI element in Selenium
In Nunit test framework, if the first assert fails (not meeting the condition), then the second assertion will not even takes place and the whole test fails (which we all know)
But using new Assert.Multiple method, the code can be written something like this
Benefits of Assert.Multiple
