How do I use Create for an Adapter

Post by Aracknid » Fri Sep 03, 2010 11:26 pm

I'm trying to create a general function that will click on what ever type of control I'm passing in.

How do I do this in code? (I'm not using the repository)

Here's what I know while in my function (based on what was passed in).

- The RxPath as a string to the control I want, such as a button, or a combo, or a checkbox
- A string that contains the word for the control, such as "button"

What I was trying to do (not sure it is correct), is something like this:
Public function Click_Adapter(ByVal ControlIndex as enumControls) as boolean

    Dim MyElement as Ranorex.Core.Element
    Dim MyAdapter as Ranorex.Adapter = Nothing

    MyElement = MyControls(ControlIndex).RxPath 'This finds the element

    'Note that MyControls(ControlIndex).Type = "Button" 
    'in this example even though it is not used in my sample code

    'This is the part where I don't know what to do
    'I cannot click the element because ".click" is not possible on MyElement
    'So I figure I need to use an adapter

    MyAdapter = Adapter.Create( ???, MyElement)  'What do I put here for adapterType??

    MyAdapter.click

end Function
Thanks,

Not sure if this is what you are looking for....but can't you just do the following?

Public Sub click(strRanorexPath As String)
Dim unknownItem As Ranorex.Unknown = strRanorexPath
unknownItem.Click
End Sub

I'm not at work today (Holiday here in North America), but look forward to trying this tomorrow.

In the meantime, out of curiosity, can someone tell me what I should put in the code of my original post for Adapter.Create (where I put ???). Even if this is wrong for what I'm trying to do, I want to learn what I should put there in case I need to use this in the future.

Thanks,

Aracknid.
