bug report : RanorexLoader.swf file with combo box

Post by lingzhou » Wed Aug 12, 2009 10:35 pm

Hi, there,

I have a bug to report for RanorexLoader.swf file working on flash combo box list items. RanorexLoader.swf basically is a workaround for Flash CS3 application which can not build automation library (Ranorex.swc) into the application. During the testing, we access the applicaiton through:


By doing this, we should have the same access of myapp.swf through Ranorex flash automation as if it was being built automation library into. But this is not true for combo box list items.

You can reproduce using your own flash sample application in your website:
http://www.ranorex.com/web-testing-exam ... ample.html

From this website, there is combo box with "label0, label1 and label2", Ranorex Spy can recognize all list items inside this combo box.

If we load this swf file together with RanorexLoader.swf like:
http://localhost/RanorexLoader.swf?rxta ... Sample.swf
Ranorex Spy cannot recognize list items in this way

I think this is because all the list items are NOT on stage. RanorexLoader.swf, as a run time load with AUT, can only give interface on stage to the Ranorex spy.

My OS is Windows vista and build is 2.1.2

Please let me know if you need more information
