Can't Identify GDI menu items

Post by smilinglyqing » Sat Mar 03, 2012 2:01 am

Hi,
we are doing UI testing for toolbar. And most of the BarItems requires GDI setting enabled. when the browser width is not wide enough, then some of the baritems will be hidden in "More", like below:
Capture.PNG
Capture.PNG (13.16 KiB) Viewed 1120 times
in this case, I need to click "More" to explore the hide items.
Expend.png

the problem is that Ranorex can't identify those hidden items. I tried the way which is documented in user guild( Ctrl+Lwin). It doesn't work. Any suggestion?

Hi,
in this case, I need to click "More" to explore the hide items.
If the width is wide enough are you able to identify the specific elements which are if it is not wide enough hidden in "More"?
You have really tried to identify the elements with the instant tracking functionality of the Spy tool?
Please send us a Ranorex Snapshot file of your application, following link will show you how to generate a snapshot file:

Yes, I tried the instant tracking and it doesn't work in this situation.

Here I generated two snapshot file. one is when the browser is not wide enough and the other one is wide enough so that all of the items are exposed outside. However, I can only attached one of them. cause the other one is too big to be attached here. (3000+kb)
