I'm sorry, but we don't understand what you exactly mean.
Could you please explain it more detailed?

We need Control name of each form object to perform automated testing using Ranorex. Since we dont have all the detals of each form object at a place we need to put ranorex spy on each object to find out its control name. This is really tedious job and I am looking for some other mechanism which can give me the details of each form object at a time.
So do u have any idea about it?

The following code reads all top-level forms and prints out the handle, location, text and control name of them:

Code: Select all

Console.WriteLine("--------------------------------------");
Console.WriteLine("Read the list of the top-level windows");
Console.WriteLine("--------------------------------------");
Application.GetForms();
foreach (Form topform in Application.Forms)
{
    IntPtr handle = topform.Handle;
    Point  location = topform.Location;
    String text = topform.Text;
    String name = topform.Name;
    Console.WriteLine("Handle={0} Location={1} Text={2} ControlName={3}", 
                                    handle, location, text, name);
}

We dont have any property like name in Form Class as you have mentioned in above code.

I mean to say following command does not exist.

topForm.Name???

Could you tell me in which build we can get such command?

I used RanorexPro 1.1.0.
Some of the properties and functions are only supported in the professional version.

Please see the RanorexNet documentation for details.
