Automate UI testing with WinAppDriver – now supporting Pen input

Windows Application Driver (WinAppDriver) is continuing Microsoft’s investment in UI test automation tools for Windows 10, and now, we’re excited to announce the next release of WinAppDriver—version 1.1!
A preview is available today— bringing support for Pen automation. The full v1.1 release is also on the horizon and will feature support for Multi-Touch in addition to Pen.

What is WinAppDriver?
For those of you who aren’t familiar with WinAppDriver or UI automation, WinAppDriver is an open-standards based UI automation service designed to work with all kinds of Windows 10 applications including WPF, WinForms, legacy Win32, and UWP. By complying with an open-standard, WinAppDriver users will be able to leverage the robust UI automation ecosystem already provided by Appium and Selenium.
What’s new in the v1.1 Preview
In v1.1, we’re aligning with the W3C WebDriver standard, and as a result, implementing the Actions API to bring in advanced input device support.
The Preview release of v1.1 includes the following:
WinAppDriver updated for Pen, including support for advanced Pen functionality:
Tilt X & Tilt Y
Barrel button
Eraser support

Appium-Dotnet-Driver NuGet Package
This is a preview Nuget package with updated bindings to enable Pen automation on WinAppDriver.

Samples & Documentation on GitHub
Note that the full release will also include support for Multi-Touch – more details on that below.
Getting Started with Pen
You can download the preview version of WinAppDriver on our GitHub page here:
To get started on using Pen, we highly recommend checking out our new Sticky Notes sample here.
Let’s sketch out a quick smile
To demonstrate something a little more complex than a few strokes on a sticky note, we tried drawing out the following smiley face through the following steps–
Step 1 – Using Pen to draw a basic Circle 

//Initiate a Pen object using the custom Dotnet Driver Bindings.
PointerInputDevice penDevice = new PointerInputDevice(PointerKind.Pen);
ActionSequence drawSequence = new ActionSequence(penDevice, 0);

//Set starting position of circle by its center point.
var centerX = canvasCoordinate.X + canvasSize.Width / 5 + 285;
var centerY = canvasCoordinate.Y + canvasSize.Height / 5 + 270;
//Radius of circle.
var radius = 200;
/* This value will dictate the granularity of the number of stokes to complete the strokes. The more steps, the less blocky the circle will be. Note: Sticky Notes will interpolate between the steps anyway, so it will not appear blocky if Pen is not lifted. */
var steps = 50;
// These two variables will calculate either the X or Y coordinate around the center of the circle for a given step.
int xValue = (int)(centerX + radius * Math.Cos(2 * Math.PI * 0 / steps));
int yValue = (int)(centerY + radius * Math.Sin(2 * Math.PI * 0 / steps));
drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerMove(CoordinateOrigin.Viewport, xValue, yValue, TimeSpan.Zero));
/* Function to draw circle by calculating coordinates around center point and brushing through them. */
for (var i = 0; i <= steps; i++) {
xValue = (int)(centerX + radius * Math.Cos(2 * Math.PI * i / steps));
yValue = (int)(centerY + radius * Math.Sin(2 * Math.PI * i / steps)); drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerDown(PointerButton.PenContact));
drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerMove(CoordinateOrigin.Viewport, xValue, yValue, TimeSpan.Zero));
//Lifting pen up once Circle is drawn. drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerUp(PointerButton.PenContact));
//Final step would be to execute the sequence.
newStickyNoteSession.PerformActions(new List<ActionSequence> { drawSequence });

Step 2 – Adding in the smile
We’ll have to get a little clever with this part, and modify the original for-loop from step 1 and add supplementary code following it. This will continue the same sequence.

/* Loop modified to iterate past opening step and closing step of circle. This will create an opening for the smiley ìmouthî. */
for (var i = 0; i < steps; i++) {
xValue = (int)(centerX + radius * Math.Cos(2 * Math.PI * i / steps));
yValue = (int)(centerY + radius * Math.Sin(2 * Math.PI * i / steps));
if (i > 1){

} drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerDown(PointerButton.PenContact));
drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerMove(CoordinateOrigin.Viewport, xValue, yValue, TimeSpan.Zero));
/* The following vars will calculate X & Y coordinates for start and end point of the smile. */
var xSmile = (int)(centerX + radius * Math.Cos(2 * Math.PI * 1 / steps));
var ySmile = (int)(centerY + radius * Math.Sin(2 * Math.PI * 1 / steps));
var xSmile2 = (int)(centerX + radius * Math.Cos(2 * Math.PI * (steps – 1) / steps));
var ySmile2 = (int)(centerY + radius * Math.Sin(2 * Math.PI * (steps – 1) / steps));

/* Continue previous sequence and execute the Pen actions. */
drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerMove(CoordinateOrigin.Viewport, xSmile, ySmile, TimeSpan.Zero));
drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerMove(CoordinateOrigin.Viewport, centerX, centerY, TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(400), new PenInfo { Pressure = .600f }));
drawSequence.AddAction(penDevice.CreatePointerMove(CoordinateOrigin.Viewport, xSmile2, ySmile2, TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(400)));

// Execute sequence.
newStickyNoteSession.PerformActions(new List<ActionSequence> { drawSequence });

The additional pressure applied to the “smile strokes”—this is to add depth to the smile. The sketch should appear as the following:Step 3 – Eyes
If we wanted to finish up and add eyes, it would look something like the following:There’s a lot of clever ways you can go on about adding the eyes, so we’ll let you decide which way is best. The full code for our design will be included as part of the Sticky Notes sample on GitHub!
Details on full 1.1
The full release of v1.1 will come with the following additions:
Pen—support for Pen will be carried over to full 1.1 release from the Preview.
Multi-Touch—support for Multi-Touch will be added in as well through the Actions API. The following touch modifiers will be supported:

New Samples & Bindings
Samples from the Preview will be further expanded to demonstrate Pen and Multi-Touch functionality. The samples will incorporate a private Appium-Dotnet-Driver Nuget feed that will enable Actions implementation via the new bindings. We’re looking into having these changes be merged into the official Appium .Net Driver, and eventually be rolled-up to the Selenium Namespace in the future.
Release Date
We’re targeting this June for the full release of v1.1—stay tuned to our GitHub board for more info!
Moving Forward
The WinAppDriver team will continue to work on adding new features, resolving bugs, and improving performance. We’ve been looking into popular community requests, and as such, have a couple of cool things in the pipeline for 1.2 and beyond—one in particular being to improve performance with XPath handling.
We’ll also be releasing a new tool for the community – more details on this to follow in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
How do I provide feedback?
Please provide feedback on our Github issue board – we look forward to hearing about any suggestions, feature requests, or bug reports!
If you have any cool sketches done through v1.1 that you’d like to share—do so on the GitHub board! It may even be featured in a future blog post!
Stay Informed

The v1.1 Preview is available now—enabling users to automate Pen scenarios. Full release for v1.1 to follow, and with it will bring support for Multi-Touch as well. Head over to our releases page on GitHub to download the preview, and get a jump-start on Pen automation by reviewing our updated samples.

8gb DDR3 ram for Gen 8 Microserver

I’m running 10gb but would love to run 16gb, anyone got an 8gb stick kicking about? Pretty sure 1333Mhz would do (but will check when i get home).

If anyone fancies a trade, I’ve got an i5 2390t that works in a microserver for a good boost over the stock Celeron’s!

Let me know.

The Microsoft Cloud can save customers 93 percent and more in energy and carbon efficiency

New report outlines how businesses moving from on-premises datacenters to the Microsoft Cloud can achieve sustainable innovation

REDMOND, Wash. — May 17, 2018 — A new report issued Thursday by Microsoft Corp. in partnership with WSP shows significant energy and carbon emissions reduction potential from the Microsoft Cloud when compared with on-premises datacenters. These gains, as much as 93 percent more energy efficient and as high as 98 percent more carbon efficient, are due to Microsoft’s extensive investments in IT efficiency from chip-to-datacenter infrastructure, as well as renewable energy.

“The world is producing more data than ever, making our infrastructure decisions about how to power this digital transformation incredibly important,” said Brad Smith, president and chief legal officer, Microsoft. “Today’s report confirms what we’ve long believed — that investing in sustainability is good for business, good for customers and good for the planet.”

Specifically, the report found that cloud investments made by Microsoft in IT operational efficiency, IT equipment efficiency, datacenter infrastructure efficiency and renewable electricity were responsible for the environmental benefits. These efficiencies translate into both energy and carbon savings for Microsoft and customers using Microsoft Cloud services.

Microsoft Cloud services achieve energy and emissions reductions in comparison with every on-premises deployment scenario assessed — Microsoft Azure Cloud Compute, Azure Storage, Exchange Online and SharePoint Online.

With more regions than any other cloud provider, Microsoft provides cloud services to customers around the world. As customers across all industries move to the cloud, sustainability and environmental responsibility are key factors in their choice of cloud provider.

“Schneider Electric chose the Microsoft Cloud to power our numerous cloud-based offerings, and it has helped us achieve our goal of becoming a global leader in sustainable energy management,” said Michael MacKenzie, vice president, EcoStruxure Technology Platform – IoT & Digital Offers, Schneider Electric. “The fact that Microsoft shares our sustainability values and focus on decreasing environmental impact makes the company a natural partner for us.”

“When organizations choose low-carbon cloud computing, they are taking an important step forward on sustainability,” said Lance Pierce, president of CDP North America. “Sustainable digital transformation, powered by a cleaner cloud, enables the creation of a sustainable and thriving economy that works for people and planet in the long term.”

Learn more about the Microsoft’s investments and approach to sustainability in the cloud at The report can be found in full at “The Carbon Benefits of Cloud Computing: A Study on the Microsoft Cloud.”

Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) enables digital transformation for the era of an intelligent cloud and an intelligent edge. Its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
