Automated UI testing for Symbian – capturing visual output

Automated UI testing is annoying in general and Symbian doesn’t really provide anything to make it easier. There are many aspects to testing UIs, but one is testing the actual drawing and layout. A necessary conditions for such tests is the ability to exercise drawing code and capture the drawn output in a test.

Symbian programming – automated UI tests shows how to create a fully functioning application environment – CAknEnv (CEikonEnv), CAknAppUi (CEikAppUi) – in your unit test so that you can instantiate a CCoeControl-derived class and how to capture the control’s output to a bitmap and from there into a file.
