This question refers to testing using MS Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Edition.
I think this is simple scenario that can happen during coded UI testing and it could be useful if someone could point to right direction.
Let's say we have ASP.NET application that has several controls on one web form. We wrote coded UI test and everything is ok. After some time development team decided to change the content of the form according to the new requirements and one button was removed. But, the test remained the same as was when button was on the form. What to do in this case? Of course, we can change the test as well. But, what to do in efficient manner if we have, for example, 1000+ coded UI tests and if changes affected a lot of forms? How can we find the changes on many forms programmatically in order to get the information of significant changes earlier and not to execute the tests where these significant changes occurred?
I'm interesting if we can use .uitest file or anything else as central repository of elements on all forms that we're testing. Is this possible to achieve?
Thank you in advance.
