Can we use the CUITe framework for Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8 applications for UI Test Automation?

Hi shikhataksande,

CUITe currently does not support testing user interfaces of applications on mobile devices.

The CUITe framework is built on top of Microsoft's Coded UI test framework, so when using Microsoft's Coded UI test framework to test the UI of mobile applications becomes possible, then it should also be possible with CUITe.

I don't know if Microsoft has any plans to support this type of functionality.

There is a commercial offering that seems to enable testing the UI of Windows Phone 8 apps:

However, if you'd like to run non-UI tests, here are some links you may be interested in:

Now since we have support for testing XAML based Windows Phone apps using CodedUI in Visual Studio 2013 Update2 ..I would really appreciate if you guys can post something related to it using CUITe
