Unit test cases

Hi Experts,

I see the Web Application on which I am working is merged with both business logic and UI controls in Code behind files. Now I need to write Unit test cases for my application. I just want to confirm can I write test cases for UI controls like Gridview, Dropdownlist population. If not what can be the reason.

Thanks,
meetDinesh

Yes, you can. But it depends on the code and the used test framework:

VS general UI testing: Verifying Code by Using UI Automation
And Web test require Selenium: Selenium automates browsers.

The problem with tightly coupled code is, that you will have problems in getting a good code coverage.

Hi ste5an, thanks for the response, I have come across of testing javascript using QUnit framework and HTML using seleno i.e selenium but my concern is that while calculating code coverage using MSTest, will the test cases written using QUnit and seleno will be counted or MStest will just ignore these test cases :( because mine's ultimate goal is to improve the code coverage in a legacy application.

Since you have Visual Studio Ultimate Edition, you should have access to Coded UI tests.
