The easiest way: drag and drop the repository element into your code method. Ranorex will automatically create a repository object (if needed), and a variable to that specific element.

Otherwise, you can do it manually. Example below:

Code: Select all

var repo = SampleSolutionRepository.Instance;
var okButton = repo.PopupWindow.OkButton;

no.
i have method:
private void Example(Ranorex.Text Element, expectedValue){
if(Element.getattributevalue<string>("text").equals(expectedValue)){
report.success(here i want to take name of element in repository, not his parameter "name" )

Ah, I see. The name is available on the repository items "Info" object. This means you will need to ask for a RepoItemInfo instead of a Ranorex.Text. If calling this from code, you can get the info object by adding "Info" to the end of the repository item name (example below). If calling from a recording module, Ranorex will automatically pass the repository info object to the method.

Code: Select all

private void Init()
{
	var repo = SampleSolutionRepository.Instance;
	var okButton = repo.MyForm.OkButtonInfo;
	myMethod(okButton);
}

public void myMethod(RepoItemInfo buttonInfo)
{
	Report.Success(buttonInfo.Name);
}
