check if an item has an accesible name

Post by mander95 » Wed Jul 13, 2016 3:46 pm

given a repository item, is it possible to check if a it has an accessible name because I'm trying to create an exception in case the repository item doesn't have an accessible name?

With the limited information you provided, I can only assume you are trying to do this in a user code module.

You can return a repo item's attribute like this:

Code: Select all

repoItem.Element.GetAttributeValue("accessiblename")
Unfortunately being a new user I cannot link you directly to the API documentation, but you can search for more information on GetAttributeValue in Ranorex's API Documentation located in Ranorex Studio > Help menu > API Documentation

That function just accesses the accessible name, I want to prove whether or not an item has an accessible name

Try this:

Code: Select all

if(repoItem.Element.GetAttributeValue("accessiblename") == null)
            	throw new Exception();
