Some interesting questions from the webinar:

Q: is there any keywords for handling captcha in Telerik test studio framework?

A: Test Studio has extensive frames support including iFrames. More details can be found here: http://docs.telerik.com/teststudio/testing-framework/write-tests-in-code/advanced-topics-wtc/frames-support

Q: How does Telerik handles dynamically rendered application products like Pega?

A: Telerik has constructs like SimulateRealClick/ SimulateRealTyping that allow automation execution against the UI (as compared to DOM). Coupled that with Wait construct, one is able to achieve a lot of automation for dynamically rendered applications.

Q: How to search in every row of radgrid?

A: One strategy for finding rows using InnerText property was showcased during the webinar. Another one could be to retrieve the entire Table and iterate over each row in a scripted step.

Q: Hi, let me know whether we can have these automation scripts available into TFS and get executed ?

A: You can store the scripts in any repository. Test Studio has more integration points with TFS. An upcoming webinar covers more on this: http://www.telerik.com/webinars/teststudio/building-an-automation-framework-that-scales
