App Testing Framework

Write automated tests for App Designer apps

You can use the MATLAB® app testing framework to test App Designer apps, or apps built programmatically using the uifigure function. The app testing framework lets you author a test class that programmatically performs a gesture on a UI component, such as pressing a button or dragging a slider, and verifies the behavior of the app.

To get started, see Overview of App Testing Framework.
