UI Testing using swift

Updated 29 September 2021


User Interface Testing ensures that the user interface behaves properly when expected actions are performed. XCUITests hook into your application’s accessibility elements to read values, trigger actions, and check existence. The Xcode UI test runner will not see an element if it is not visible in the accessibility hierarchy. By writing UI tests, you’ll unintentionally enhance your app’s accessibility.

Let’s implement UI testing in the app.

For this, I have created a simple app where users can login from the first page and on the second page showing all the country lists in a tableview and when the user clicks on a row it shows details of this country.

Now create UI Testing Bundle target for the test case.

After creating Target the Xcode automatically creates a directory with some files.

Now add code for UI testing.

XCUIApplication provide a proxy which can launch, monitor, and terminate app in the UI Testing.
TextFields is part if UIElement groups which help to access UITextFiled form page.
WaitForExistence use to hold screen for a duration.
TapĀ  to click the element like button.
TypeText use to set value.

Now run the test code.
