How do I capture scrolling windows?

Post by Saha » Wed Jun 15, 2011 3:16 pm

Hi,

I have to script a test case where I need to capture scolling windows screenshot and compare those. How do I do it using Ranorex? We are using SnagIt tool do capture scrolling windows for now and compare the screenshots manually. We want to do this same with Ranorex.

Thanks,
Saha

Sorry but Ranorex doesn't support the same "capture scrolling" method as Snag-It does. You have to write your own piece of code which handle this or you automate Snag-It with Ranorex. Another solution would be to catch the snapshots with Snag-it and compare them with Ranorex. Please also take a look to the Image Based Automation with Ranorex

Thanks for your reply.
We don't have enough licenses for Snagit, so I would like to explore other options for captureing scrolling windows. Is there any other way to capture scrolling windows using Ranorex ?

Thanks

Hi,

No the only way is to write your own piece of code, as I suggested above. I think you will find such a method with Google if you search a bit.

Ok. I will do my search.
Is there any plan to implement this scrolling window feature in future ranorex releases?

Thanks,
Saha

I will add this as a feature request to our internal bug tracking system. But I cannot guarantee you if this feature will be developed.
