Access to TStringGrid elements

Post by genesiss » Thu Dec 16, 2010 10:16 am

Hi!

I'm trying to access elements in TStringGrid ( which is - as google suggested a delphi object: http://delphi.wikia.com/wiki/TStringGrid_Class ).

How could I get rows inside the grid?

Thank you for your time.

Hi,

It seems there is no MSAA implementation for TStringGrids.
Please have a look at following post:

You can also try to access your grid with our GDI Plug-In:

It works with GDI Capture Plug-In.

But now I have another problem:

I want to edit some text elements (with *.TextValue = "...") - but Ranorex recognizes them as RawText elements. How could I edit these elements?

Thank you.

Try clicking the item and entering through the keyboard. As far as I am aware rawtext is readonly, you cannot modify -

Dim rawtext as rawtext = rxpath
rawtext.click
keyboard.press("1234")

Hi,

sorry but you can't set any attribute if you have accessed an UI element wit the GDI plugin.

I did it with clicking the item, as sdaly suggested.

Thank you for quick response!
