Finding a Web Link

Post by SurajJaldu » Mon Apr 02, 2012 7:05 pm

Hi,

I am trying to find a link in AUT and click it.
The following code is working for me.

Code: Select all

 Ranorex.WebDocument mppApp = repoMPP.HomePage.Self;
            Ranorex.Unknown mppElement = mppApp.FindSingle<Ranorex.Unknown>(".//a[@id='CompanyManagementCheckButton']");
            mppElement.Click();
But, the following doesn't. Can you give me an insight, why?

Code: Select all

 Ranorex.WebDocument mppApp = repoMPP.HomePage.Self;
            Ranorex.Link mppElement = mppApp.FindSingle<Ranorex.Link>(".//a[@id='CompanyManagementCheckButton']");
            mppElement.Click();
I get the error "The element does not support the required capability 'link'. "
I prefer to know the type of object I am finding.

Thanks,
Suraj

Hi,

as you are going to automate a ATag pleas try to use the following code instead:
Ranorex.ATag mppElement = mppApp.FindSingle<Ranorex.ATag>(".//a[@id='CompanyManagementCheckButton']");

Thanks. ATag is working. (Just curios) Where do we use 'Ranorex.Link'?

Ranorex.Link is a Role. Ranorex.LinkTag is the linktag inside a HTML header.
