Automation of Swing application steps in minimized mode

Post by sagar1375 » Fri Jul 08, 2016 5:05 pm

I have set of Swing application instances running simultaneously and need to automate the form completion activities. Can these activities be performed using Ranorex while the Swing application is in minimised mode. The point I want to make here is can I run Ranorex automation on the objects in the form (like button, text box) without using the keystroke/mouse movement mechanism.

Thanks !

Hi,

I believe you (or any of your colleagues) already started a thread about this problem here...
http://www.ranorex.com/forum/running-pa ... t9641.html

Please don't start multiple topics about the same issue! It will not speed up the answer time.

Anyway, I think that what you are trying to achieve is pointless. Ranorex is a GUI testing tool, which means it expect the GUI is available during test execution. Performing GUI tests with minimized GUI is definitely silly ;)
