Counting rows in a table

Post by nbeule » Fri May 24, 2019 1:31 pm

There are a million posts about this. I've read them all and still need help. To me this: repository.FrmMain.dgvIntervals.Rows.Count where dgvIntervals is a table makes all the sense in the world but I always get 0. I made a variable for my rows and indexed through them while counting, but it's very slow and I need to do this multiple times. I also tried:

IEnumerable<Ranorex.Row> rowList = repository.PART_GridViewVirtualizingPanel.Find<Ranorex.Row>(./Row)
Dim includedCount As Integer = rowList.Count

but I can't find much reference online to the things it uses so I dont understand why it breaks. Any help is welcome thanks!

The problem is, that the table in your snapshot does not act as standard table, with rows and columns ;) The 'rows' are actually stored in 'Container' element...

The table appears to be WPF-based, so I would suggest to try different WPF plugin settings. This may help with correct table appearance. Otherwise, you must utilize different approach.

For example, this xpath returns all table 'rows', stored as containers (except 'header' container):

Code: Select all

Now you can use this code, which should return count of row-containers. The repoElement parameter should be filled with repository element, with above xpath:

Code: Select all

    public static void ContainersCount(RepoItemInfo repoElement)
		IList<Ranorex.Container> containerList = repoElement.CreateAdapters<Ranorex.Container>();
		int containerCount = containerList.Count;
