Post by arunviswa » Mon Sep 17, 2018 10:01 pm


Im trying to compare my application image with my repository image to validation an extra step is necessary or not.

For Example: Need to validate whether system prompt to enter Batch number, if yes, i need to enter batch number else i can proceed further.

I'm afraid, I don't have a clue what is an AS400 application ;) Ranorex supports only Windows-based apps and mobile devices with Android and iOS. Could you please share some more details about your AS400 app? Ideally, post some screenshots (yes screenshots ;) ) and a snapshot of the application you are trying to automate. Thanks.

Generally speaking, I would not recommend to use a screenshot-based automation on large screenshots or entire dialogs. It's definitely worthless, if you need to compare a textual information. So please, upload a snapshot of the application, maybe we can find a better way to achieve what you want.
