In a specific customer project, only 3 out of 5 tests in a test list run when executed on a remote machine. There is no error message given, no test results. They simply appear to be skipped during execution.

When running a test list in which a parent test calls a subtest with a coded step you may get the following:

If, while using IE 10 on Windows 8 machine) you try to record a Drag & Drop (from a site like https://yuilibrary.com/yui/docs/dd/drop-code.html) what gets recorded is a set of Click's instead of a Drag & Drop operation. The same thing works as expected using IE 10 on a Win 7 machine.

If a test script, when run in Chrome, causes the browser to get a Page Not Found returned the test is permanently stuck and cannot recover from this error. The rest of the iterations of a Data Drive test will not run even though it includes a NavigateTo step. NOTE: running the same test in IE works as expected. The other browsers are untested in this same scenario at this time.

A test to repro the problem can be found on the internal bug report.

1) Open a test with multiple steps and multiple storyboard images
2) Go to the storyboard
3) Turn the scroll wheel of the mouse

Expected: Either nothing or the images to be scrolled and the new step description to match the image scrolled to
Actual: The images scroll but the step description of the original image is still shown.

If the port for the storage service is blocked by a firewall on the external machine (but not for the scheduling service), and you then pick a local result and Publish to Server, after a long time (minutes) Test Studio will display "Results successfully published" but they actually were not published at all.

When you build a Test Studio test project in Visual Studio, four dll's are added to the output folder that don't appear to serve any purpose:

1) Autofac.dll
2) Microsoft.CompilerServices.AsyncTargetingPack.Net4.dll
3) Newtonsoft.Json.dll
4) Telerik.TestStudio.Shared.dll

One customer is using a different version of Newtonsoft.Json.dll and this is creating a conflict as they are putting both the build of the application and the test project into the same drop folder.

When the incoming value and value contained in an outgoing request have different encoding's Test Studio will not detect the dynamic target even though the values are actually the same, once decoded. A sample Fiddler trace demonstrating this problem will be attached to the internal problem report.

If the test records a large amount of dynamic targets the subsequent selection is very slow.

A video demonstration of the problem is in the internal description.

1) Double click on a .aiiresult file of a test list containing a failed test
2) Drill down into Step Failure Details
3) Export the details to a .zip file

Expected: The file to include the image on failure
Actual: the image on failure is missing

When a test project is connected to TFS, every time you Get Latest, the date & time stamp is updated to when you clicked Get Latest. This leads to some serious problems when you now try to schedule tests via the Telerik Scheduling Service in a multi-tester environment. Storage will take and keep the one with the latest date & time stamp which may not actually be the "latest" version. It won't take the version from tester's B machine that made a change to the test prior to the Get Latest operation. As a result the test list will run with old versions of the tests.

Playback of a test recorded in Chrome against a specific customer website fails with:

Recording the exact same sequence works perfectly when using IE.

It is very difficult to explain (and understand) when the global wait for elements applies and when it doesn't.  There seem to be lots of questions on the forums and in the suggestions around this, for example this post:


I can't find anything in the online documentation that talks about it.  We have opened support cases, asked questions on the forums and new users here get very confused.  It is pretty fundamental to "getting" the product and would be great to get some documentation on that.  I'd say it is important enough to document and call out in a blog.  Thanks!

Consider the example element below:
This logic will locate the element:
This will not and cause it to time out and fail:

This will pass if logic was recorded as such by default, but fail if the space characters were manually typed out
