CreateAdapter with click location editing

Post by willmtz » Fri Feb 14, 2014 9:55 pm

Hello,
This is my first use of "Code: Select All," I hope it will be displayed properly.

Problem Description:
I inherited an app test suite with computer, and unfortunately the Test Developer did not provide, or created any type of “set up instructions." Consequently there are many conditions which I believe need to be met in order for the test cases to run successfully. Conditions such as; Monitor resolution, screen text size setting, positioning of the browser, etc..
I perceive the problem being that the browser is not positioned in the original location, and hence any other window form will also be at the wrong location. It is interesting that a URL link within the initial browser window is found, validated and launched, and yet it cannot minimize the browser.

In using Rx SPY, I observed and used the “location” settings displayed by Spy, in hopes of debugging the first failure I am encountering. I am assuming that I would have to set new location settings throughout the test cases, if this is the problem. I have tried the SPY: location, Mouse Relative, and Mouse Screen, location settings for debugging, but these settings have not solved the code failure.
It could be that the “CreateAdapter” class is not finding what it needs to function properly.

Single stepping through the code, I get up to this line, as shown in the “code snippet”;
return _javaconsoletigeruiautotestutInfo.CreateAdapter<Ranorex.TitleBar>(true)
On the next single step, the code automatically runs (I’m not allowed to single step, the button is grayed out.).

It is very evident where the failures start, as shown in the listed Java console output;

[Info ][Test]: Test Module 'MinimizeJavaConsole' started.
[Info ][Mouse]: click console header for focus
Mouse Left Click item 'JavaConsoleTIGERUIAutoTestUT.JavaConsoleTIGERUIAutoTestUT' at 1155;16.

//repo.JavaConsoleTIGERUIAutoTestUT.JavaConsoleTIGERUIAutoTestUT.Click("279;11", 280);
            Delay.Milliseconds(0);
One puzzling aspect about this code is that the JavaConsole usage is not showing up within the recordings I have done. For example this line; JavaConsoleTIGERUIAutoTestUTAppFolder(RepoGenBaseFolder parentFolder). Could anyone identify what it might be?

Hi,

After reading through your code snippets I think the previous developer wrote something very complicated to execute a very simple action.

I could propose something much simpler but I'm not sure it's what you are looking for.

The error is quite simple to resolve it only means that Ranorex cannot find the console it has to minimize. I would suggest to start Spy then open (manually) the console you have to minimize and then verify the path indicated in Spy is the same that the one in your code snippet
public JavaConsoleTIGERUIAutoTestUTAppFolder(RepoGenBaseFolder parentFolder) :  
                    base("JavaConsoleTIGERUIAutoTestUT", "/form[@title~'^Java\\ Console\\ -\\ TIGER\\ -\\ UI']", parentFolder, 30000, null, false, "13139a93-11a5-4852-89db-312fb0d86054", "")
It's possible the window title has changed for instance.

If it's still not clear how to solve the issue you can post a snapshot of the JavaConsole in Spy.


Regards

Swiss'
A simple thank you always does wonders !

Swiss, I gathered the information you requested and I “properly” edited the rxrec with the Spy browser titlebar with a location of 430;20. This location is from a trail script I recorded, using the new position for the browser. This location does not correspond with any of the locations I saw with Spy, as shown below.
I have saved several snapshots, and decided to include them all. The “From TIGER launch IE” snapshot is the one I am actually working with. The others are “trial scripts.”
Any comments you may have will be greatly appreciated.

Also, I am interested in learning why the RxLog Rxpath for the titlebar is different.

Spy: /form[@title~'^TIGER\ Launcher\ -\ Windows\ ']/titlebar[@accessiblerole='TitleBar']
Rxlog: /form[@title~'^Java\ Console\ -\ TIGER\ -\ UI']/titlebar[@accessiblerole='TitleBar']'
Trial script: /form[@title~'^TIGER\ Launcher\ -\ Windows\ ']/titlebar[@accessiblerole='TitleBar']

Location: 253;59 mouse relative; 194;19 mouse screen; 447;78

CODE: SELECT ALL
//
[System.CodeDom.Compiler.GeneratedCode("Ranorex", "4.1.1")]
        void ITestModule.Run()
        {
            Mouse.DefaultMoveTime = 300;
            Keyboard.DefaultKeyPressTime = 100;
            Delay.SpeedFactor = 1.0;

            Init();

            Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Application", "Run application 'http://j-rmrqa2app-m:8080/tiger-UITest/' with arguments '' in normal mode.", new RecordItemIndex(0));
            Host.Local.RunApplication("http://app-m:8080/tiger-UITest/", "", "", false);
            Delay.Milliseconds(0);
            
            Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Mouse", "Mouse Left Click item 'TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor' at 430;20.", repo.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplorInfo, new RecordItemIndex(1));
            repo.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor.Click("430;20");
            Delay.Milliseconds(200);
            
            Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Mouse", "Mouse Left Click item 'TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor.Minimize' at 17;17.", repo.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor.MinimizeInfo, new RecordItemIndex(2));
            repo.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor.Minimize.Click("17;17");
            Delay.Milliseconds(200);
            
        }
Swiss, I later managed to step through the code up to this block of code, and the title bar is correct. I changed the button click from "middle" to "left," and used the 430;20 location.
CODE: SELECT ALL
//
       [System.CodeDom.Compiler.GeneratedCode("Ranorex", "4.1.1")]
        void ITestModule.Run()
        {
            Mouse.DefaultMoveTime = 300;
            Keyboard.DefaultKeyPressTime = 100;
            Delay.SpeedFactor = 1.0;

            Init();

            // click for focus
            Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Mouse", "click for focus\r\nMouse Left Click item 'TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor1.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor' at 430;20.", repo.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor1.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplorInfo, new RecordItemIndex(0));
            repo.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor1.TIGERLauncherWindowsInternetExplor.Click("430;20");
            Delay.Milliseconds(4280);

Hi Willmtz,

I am unfortunately not sure I got the issue, but when you just want to minimize the browser you can just use the Invoke Action->Minimize on the main form of the browser as shown below:

Ranorex can identify the elements without the need to know where they are located on the screen. Ranorex will identify the elements based on their unique RxPath and regardless their position.
Maybe you can explain in some words what you are trying to do?

Thanks,
Markus
