Drag and Drop support

Post by balajichandan » Mon Dec 14, 2009 9:54 am

Hi,
Does Ranorex 2.1.3 and 1.5 versions support Drag and drop functionality in Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007

Ranorex 2.X as well as Ranorex 1.5 support drag & drop operations in every application, consequently also in Outlook 2003/2007.

You can easily check that by recording a drag & drop operation with Ranorex Recorder. The recorder should replay the operation just fine and should also generated code for you.

I'm trying to Drag and Drop an email from Outlook 2010 inbox , to another Outlook folder.
But the item is not getting moved to the destination.
Strangely , if I move the mouse a bit(manually) when the code is executing, the action completes successfully. :?
Even the recorder shows the same problem.

Below is the snippet

Code: Select all

FormMicrosoftOutlook.Element4704.Click("X;Y");
FormMicrosoftOutlook.Element4704.MoveTo("X;Y");
Mouse.ButtonDown(MouseButtons.Left);
Delay.Milliseconds(6430);
Mouse.MoveTo(trNode.Element);
Mouse.ButtonUp(MouseButtons.Left);

Hi,

you can try to automate your application using our GDI plug-in.
You can find more information about this plug-in on following link:
Automation of Legacy Applications with the GDI Capture Plug-In

I have Ranorex 2.1.2 , but GDI capture works only with works with version 2.3.4 and higher.

Surely, I did try GDI first with 2.1.2 (just in case I get lucky) – Did not work :(

Then I downloaded Ranorex trial version 2.3.5 , added the GDI pluggin.
But Outlook 2010 crashes when I try to use Ranorex Spy or recorder on the same.

Hi,

can you provide us a detailed error description?
What was the exact error message popping up?
Have a look at Microsoft Event Viewer to get more information about the crash and post it here.
Are there any error messages or warnings in your report?
