Video: Building Touch Apps With UI for WPF (Session Recording)


It’s 2015, and ever since the release of Windows 8, touch is becoming the norm for PC users. PC manufactures are releasing touch-screens for everything, including laptops. This doesn’t mean that you have to abandon you skill set and write Windows Store Apps to utilize this functionality. With Telerik UI for WPF, you can make any app touch-friendly with just a couple of lines of code. In my session from TelerikNEXT, I take a standard WPF app and turn it into an application that responds to various gestures including swipes, pinch, tap, tap and move, and tap and hold. I also explore various touch-friendly controls and explore scenarios in which you should or shouldn’t use this feature.

via UI Testing with Xcode 7 and Telerik UI for iOS.

At Telerik, we know how important is for our customers to have stable and reliable product. That is why we take testing seriously.

We know that automated tests allow us to verify that the whole product is functioning correctly. Until now, we used UIAutomation for unit tests to ensure that our API is functioning properly. Regarding UI tests, we tried different tools and products. However, no one was able to handle our requirements.

Therefore, based on our own experience and our customers’ experience, we built our own tool,Telerik Test Studio, which already implements and is going to implement a bunch of the features we were not able to find anywhere else. For more information about it, refer ​to the end of the article. Soon, we will make a deep dive into how to test UI for iOS with Telerik Test Studio.
