The Platform Builder includes a sample application, VideoApp, that the display driver writer can use to test a display driver. The application tests the driver's ability to draw lines, polygons, rectangles, text, cursors, and to display various color patterns. The application source code is located in the Platform\Cepc\Test\Videoapp directory. The VideoApp.exe is located in the Platform\Cepc\Drivers\Display\Test directory.

Testing a new driver with the VideoApp application verifies that the driver correctly performs a number of common graphics operations. The application is not intended as an exhaustive test of all possible operations. The display driver writer is responsible for thorough testing of the driver.
