Hi,

I believe you are looking for a code like this:

Code: Select all

int xVal=repo.blah.Element.Location.X;
int yVal=repo.blah.Element.Location.Y;
int widthVal = repo.blah.Element.Size.Width/2;
int heightVal = repo.blah.Element.Size.Heigh/2;
int repoCenterXVal= xVal + widthVal;
int repoCenterYVal= yVal + heightVal;
This code returns center x/y position of a given repo element, based of its client rectangle coordinates/size. If you want screen rectangle-based position, replace 'Location' keyword with 'ScreenLocation' keyword. Hope this helps? ;)

There's also an alternative using the Ranorex API, so you don't have to do all the math yourself:
System.Drawing.Point screenLocation = Ranorex.Location.Center.GetScreenLocation(element);
You can use any location (e.g. a custom one or even one including an image search) instead of the "Center" and there is also a GetElementLocation method in the Location class in case you don't want screen but relative coordinates.
