Does ranorex support iframe tags

Post by navya28 » Tue Sep 22, 2015 10:01 pm

Hello,

I was working on automating a test case which has an iframe tag. I am not able to access individual elements in that iframe tag and so I am not able to set the values in those fields.
Does ranorex support the automation of test cases that have iframe tags?

Thank you

Hi,

Yes, Ranorex supports iframes. Could you please post a Ranorex snapshot of the iframe in question? It's hard to suggest something reasonable without snapshot.

Hi,

OK, I checked the snapshot and I probably found the reason of your problem. Because you forgot to mention your are experiencing a problem on mobile (iOS) device, I mislead you with the information that Ranorex supports iframes, which it does, but only on desktop. Ranorex unfortunately cannot identify the items in iframes on mobile devices and there is nothing Ranorex devs can do about it. It's a mobile platform limitation. Please check this post for more details about the issue:
