How can I validate text in Ranorex.container object?

Post by ruchib3 » Fri Mar 04, 2011 5:14 am

Hi,

I am having a object of type Ranorex.container. It is a text box but this is how Ranorex is recognizing it. It has some text say 5000. Now I want to validate the text. Could you please let me know how can I do this? This is bit urgent also. Quick replies would be really appreciated.

When I validate it using recorder to identify the properties, there is no property as text or textvalue. No other property also displays 5000.

Thanks,
Ruchi

Hi,

Please could you post us a Ranorex Snapshot of the element.
How to create a Ranorex Snapshot:

Have you tried to Spy the object yet? Maybe the parent of the text element contains the expected information you need.

Hi,

Yes I have done object spy on the object. I cannot share the snapshot here as that's against my company policy. But can try to explain in detail.

the xpath is something like: /form/container/container[@controlnale='tablelayoutPanel]/element/container......[@classname = 'abc']/element[@automationid='xyz']/text/container[@automationid='qw']

Now when I start recording and click validate, I don't get any property that has value as 5000.
During spy, it displays the object as Container in role. Classname is Scrollviewer.

Now I want to validate the text that it contains 5000.

Thanks,
Ruchi

Hi,

Would it be possible to send us a snapshot to [email protected] ?

From the posted RxPath I can see the the element before the container is a text element. In WPF it is sometimes tricky because you have to adapt the RxPath manually after the recording. But you can also use the "scroll element level" functionality during a Validation step to the the text element.
Therefore please take a look to following documentation:
http://www.ranorex.com/support/user-gui ... rding.html

You will find a section called Recorder Hot-Keys, please take the attention on this one.
