How to remove attachments in outlook

Post by Simran » Tue Nov 28, 2017 6:47 pm


I want to remove attachments from outlook. the code I used is:

Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Mouse", "Mouse Left Click item 'textInfo' at 270;6.", textInfo);
Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Keyboard", "Key sequence '{Back}' with focus on 'textInfo'.", textInfo);

I am using outlook 2010 and ranorex 7.2.0. This code was working before this work when attachments are displaying like a taskbar. but when display change for attachments this code get failed. Even different versions of outlook can create problems. So I want to know any efficient way or code for removing attachments from mail that doesn't matter with the position of attachments.

Why don't you just record yourself removing the attachments and then look at the code Ranorex generated for those steps? This would be the easiest way in my opinion:

Record yourself removing attachments -> Right click the steps that were created during the recording -> chose view code OR convert to code from the right-click context menu. This way you let Ranorex do the hard work and you can just adjust the code as needed if at all.

Hope this helps!
