Getting InnerText from a Span

Post by GranPapi » Wed Aug 10, 2016 6:11 pm

Hey guys! I'm new to Ranorex and I'm looking forward to do the following:

I'm creating a module that uses the "validate" action, and need to validate that the value shown on a table is matches to a given text string; the value shown in the table is contained in a span -and it's contained on the "innertext" property

How can I get Ranorex to get that InnerText?

Thanks in advance!

While recording:

When you click validate and then click on an item, Ranorex spy will open and will highlight the selected element in the tree. Once you are sure this is the correct element press next. On the next screen you can choose what you are validating; you can see I have inner text selected:

And here is what the generated step looks like in the action table of the recording:

Hi,

Please post a Ranorex snapshot (not screenshot!) and the xpath to span element you are using.
