Description Keith Phillips 2015-12-03 16:40:09 UTC
Cell views cannot be automated for UI testing due to the value of e.View.StyleId not being valued. Even though the cell has StyleId it cannot be assigned to native view field for UI automation. Is there a better way for this to be set within code than what is provided in the sample program? If I drill down through e.View I can eventually see the StyleId. Just not sure how to set it for UI Automation.

If you drill through e.View you can find the styled for each control in the tableview.
