CloseApplication

Post by JoeR » Mon Mar 14, 2011 3:57 pm

There is a new CloseApplication action available in the recordings for 3.0. Can that be used to close a browser window and if so how?

To close a DOM, you should be able to use the WebDocument Close method as below -

Code: Select all

Ranorex.WebDocument dom = "/dom[@domain='www.ranorex.com']";
dom.Close();
To use the CloseApplication, you can do the following to close the application in which the element resides-

Code: Select all

Ranorex.MenuItem mi = "RxPath";
Host.Local.CloseApplication(mi);

Yes, as the API documentation points out, this method closes the application or web page which contains the specified element, respectively. Just pass in an element of the application/web site and Ranorex will try to close the application/web site.

Thanks guys,

I had trouble getting this to work by just pointing to an element trying to close the application. I finally used the root dom i.e. /dom[@domain='ipaddress:port']. This worked.

Again thanks
