main post image

In this article (which is part of our TestProject webinar which was hosted on Nov. 5th 2019) we are going to discuss how anyone who is interested in web automation testing and has little or no knowledge in Selenium can switch to TestProject with Zero effort!

In the webinar itself we’ve discussed the steps to getting started with web test automation with Selenium and TestProject, without any coding skills required! Here you can watch the full recording of the webinar:

Problem Statement

Over the past years, more and more manual testers are looking to transition into the growing test automation field, but they don’t always know where to start from and they don’t always have the necessary coding skills.

šŸ’„ In this webinar we’ve discussed the following šŸ’„

  1. The problem we might face when getting started with test automation.
  2. The solution to getting a soft land with Selenium commands and test automation, even if you do not have any coding skills (using TestProject Free Platform).
  3. Tips and tricks to create your first web test, upgrade your tests with code and get fancy reports!
  4. Q&As on anything related to manual testing, test automation, Selenium and TestProject.

We are going discuss how TestProject can leverage and simplify your Selenium coding experience in an much unified fashion. The complete detail are available in the webinar video below:

Here we will discuss some of the coding parts discussed in the webinar video such as:

  1. Automatically generating coded tests and editing the tests locally.
  2. Adding NUnit Tests to run them in different browsers.

Automatically generating coded tests from TestProject and editing the tests locally

The recorded test that was exported to C# code from TestProject platform looks like the one below, with runner and actual test code:


The runner is the code which is responsible for running the actual test code and the runner codes are those which are useful for running the test in your local machine.Ā The runner has the following most important piece of code:

  • DevToken
  • StepExecutionResult
  • RunnerFactory

As shown below in the screenshot:

Test Code

Test code is the actual code which tests the application that we are intended to as shown below:

The complete code development discussion is available in even more detail here.

Adding NUnit Tests to run them in different browsers

Here is the way we can use NUnit [TestFixture] attribute to run the test in different browsers and validate that it works as expected on all browsers. Once uploading your code back to TestProject platform, there is no need to include the NUnit library, since with TestProject’s UI and API you can easily trigger your test automation on any browser you have installed on your machine.

public class TestRunner

    public static string DevToken = "<DevToken>";

    Runner runner;

    public TestRunner(AutomatedBrowserType automatedBrowserType)
        runner = RunnerFactory.Instance.CreateWeb(DevToken, automatedBrowserType);


    public void RunTest()
        runner.Run(new EATest(), true);
