Handeling Silverlight Async Calls

As it is the case in most of silver light Service Calls You must call them asynchronously

Since this is very well the first of the series, it will mostly cover up the architecture and the testing technique that Xamarin UI Tests uses.

The Technology
Xamarin UI Test is an automation testing framework similar to selenium, Watir, Watin (.net), Robot and Sikuli, if you have used BDD (Behavioral Driven Development) or a more advanced TDD (Test Driven Development) approach at least you must have come across one of these frameworks, and in that perspective comes Xamarin UI Testing as an automation framework designed specifically for Xamarin Automation testing, For starter Xamarin UI Tests was not build from scratch, instead it was built on top of another UI Automation testing framework that is targeting android and iOS sepecifically which is Calabash, I have to say that this choice was made wisely as of n…
