GDI Capture PlugIn RawText FontStyle property is not working

Post by manohar.karuvadi » Mon Jan 16, 2012 11:36 am

Hi,
In GDI Capture PlugIn RawText property .FontStyle property is not working always that property value returns Normal only.

Here are the code Sample.

public static bool VerifyRawText(this Ranorex.Adapter Container, string ActualText)
{
bool isFound = false;
IList<Ranorex.RawText> Texts = Container.FindChildren<Ranorex.RawText>();
foreach (Ranorex.RawText rText in Texts)
{
if (rText.RawTextValue.Contains(ActualText))
{
System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show(rText.FontStyle );
isFound = true;
break;
}
}
return isFound;
}

Even for bold text also that property value return Normal.
Can any one help on this issue.
Thanks,
Manohar

Hello Manohar,

You are correct, one would expect bold to be part of the font style.
With TrueType fonts however, bold is not a style but actually one of many different font "weights"
The RawText plugin currently doesn't support this. But I will add a feature request for that; we will probably include that in one of our next service releases, either by adding a "FontWeight" attribute or by adding an optional "Bold" string to the style
