Behaviour of Vertical Scrollbar

Post by SourishHalder » Thu Jun 20, 2013 5:21 am

Hello

I use Ranorex 4.0.2.21666 to automate testing for Wpf application.
But we are facing problems while trying to use Vertical Scrollbars or control their movement. When we check the spy , we can see another dummy vertical scrollbar with the same positioning being created within the same roup panel and also we are not able to manually control the field value for the Vertical Scrollbar either via user code or using the SetValue action. The reason for us to control the movement of the scrollbar is we want in our playback of the testing for the mouse action to hit the exact location on the group panel and since we are not able to control the value of the position of the scrollbar the scrollbar keeps getting reset to the original starting position in the group panel.

Version of Ranorex used - 4.0.2.21666
OS - Windows 7 32 bit
Attachments - Screenshot of the vertical scrollbar
Snapshot can be provided on request

Hello Sourish,

In general, you should be able to use 'Set Value' for the 'VerticalScrollBar'.
Is it implemented as a 'ScrollViewer' control?

Could you please post or send us ([email protected]) a Ranorex Snapshot of your application in order to analyze this issue? Please take a look at Creating Ranorex Snapshot Files in our User Guide.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Markus (T)

Hello Markus ,

It is implemented as a ScrollViewer Control. And we tried using SetValue action to set the value , but it was not working. I even tried to set the value from the user code perspective but that too did not have any effect.
Kindly do let me know if you need the snapshot .. .we can provide it on request.

Regards
Sourish

Hello Markus,

Apologies for the delay. Attached is the snapshot of the vertical scrollbar.
Please notice that even though there is one vertical scrollbar in the form , there is another dummy repository item that gets created pointing to the same repo item , but has no additional value... which is a bit strange.

Thanks in advance

Hello,

Thank you for the snapshot file.
You have to use the scroll bar element where the attribute "@accessiblename='Vertical'" is available.
This should be the element with the attribute FlavourName='msaa'.
Add the scroll bar element to your repository and use "SetValue" action as shown below.

The value "80" represents the position or the scroll indicator.

Hello ,

In regards to your response , I tried explicitly setting the value of the scrollbar with the attribute FlavourName = 'msaa' in the *.rxrec ... but we were still not able to control the movement of the scrollbar. Can you suggest any particular setting or property we should be looking at.

Regards,
Sourish
