Based upon some excellent feedback from our customers using our Coded UI support, we’ve created a separate installation of our Coded UI Test Extension for WinForms controls. Why? Well, it’s because Coded UI is about testing, and it’s a little silly to make you install the full DXperience Universal just so you can run tests in your testing environment.
This new install includes a pre-compiled (and signed) Coded UI Test Extension binary, as well as the source files for it. The install does not contain assemblies for the DevExpress WinForms controls. When run, it deploys only the Coded UI Test Extension assembly and does not affect other assemblies. This makes it a neat package for deploying to your testing environment.
If you manually build our WinForms controls and sign the resulting assemblies with a custom Public Key Token, you will also need to manually build the Coded UI Test Extension (and sign it with the same key) in order to test them.
The installer for the Coded UI Test Extension for WinForms Controls will be available shortly for all subscribers of DXperience Universal Edition.
