Does anyone know what is available for automated testing of software developed under mfc.  I am looking for something that will allow me to fill edit boxes, click radio and check boxes and so forth.  Thanks for any help guys and gals.

Microsoft used to have a product called Microsoft Test, but they sold it to another company.  Kind of weird, they usually buy stuff rather than sell it.  Anyway, if you search the Microsoft web site you can probably figure out who is supporting it now.  It did all the stuff you need.

If you want to do it yourself, get a copy of Jeffrey Richters Advanced Windows book.  In it he tells you how to use his sendkeys dll to send keystrokes, stuff like that to other applications.  YOu could use it to send to your own application.

Here's where you'll find the book:

It's not done under MFC as its done as a DLL and a Journal Playback Proc Hook.  But you could code it to have a built-in scripting within your application.

Thanks Duneram
  But presently we are looking for a tool in place to handle testing.  The more it's hands off the better.

There is an excellent tool I helped develop called PinPoint.  You can call 1 888 go kelly for info.  I don't know if its publically for sale, but I do know they sell the product to different clients.  YOu can find information on it at www.kellyservices.com/

I wrote the original version for 95 & NT.

Its a live concurrent CBT tool that can do testing on virtually anything. Since it runs 'live' there is no simulation, and it is the best on the market.

Once you have done this sort of stuff, its not that tough to 'make your own'
