How to retreive custom property for JavaFX control

Post by bk_tester » Fri Aug 04, 2017 11:51 am

Hello,

I have custom table based on JavaFX TreeTable. Ranorex Spy recognizes it well. And indexes of selected TreeItems are indentified on Advanced tab under SelectionModel property, SelectedIndicies sub-property as a array of integers, like [2,3,5,7].
How can I get that values?

Thanks,
Bohdan

Hi,

Could you please upload a Ranorex snapshot (not screenshot) of the problematic element? Without (at very least) snapshot, there is not much anyone here can do or suggest.

Generally speaking, obtaining processable data from Java elements is often a pain in the... ;) My guess is, that in order to obtain the values you are after, you will most probably have to parse the property via custom code.

Thanks. Now please post an xpath pointing to the problematic element, which stores its values in an array. I can't find anything like you described. Each visible TreeItem contains list of cells, and those cells with text have correctly filled property Text. I just don't see property SelectionModel?

xPath for the TreeTable is /form[@title='Notifications']/container[@name='mainView']/?/?/container[@name='resourceBoxesPane']//container[@styleclass='mint-resource-notification-boxes-section']/container[@name='boxes']/?/?/container[@styleclass='body-area']/?/?/container[@name='outbox']/container[@name='outboxMasterPane']/container/container[2]/?/?/tree[@styleclass='tree-table-view mint-notification-table']

and maybe for better understanding i've attached screenshot:

Thanks. Now I see and understand. The problem is, that SelectionMode property is not expandable in saved snapshot ;)

Anyway, as I mentioned, you will have to process this info via code.

What I found interesting, that the individual TreeItems have Selected property.

So in a theory, if the TreeItem is selected, its property should be set to True...except it is not :D I would suggest to discuss this behavior with your AUT developers. If the Selected property would be set correctly, it should be easy for you to create a list of treeitems, then go thought that list and evaluate Selected property of each treeitem. Otherwise, you need to process the SelectionModel>>SelectedIndicies property and somehow match the obtained values with selected TreeItems (probaly via element index?).

Thanks for your replay!
Actually i dive into custom property to identify somehow what treeitems is selected. Becease Selected property is not working well at this place.
I'm just wondering how Ranorex Spy retreive information into SelectionModel (SelectionIndicies []) property... if this info is available in Spy i guess it must be possible to retreive it in Ranorex code module. Am i right?

Are you asking for this?

Object.Element.GetAttributeValueText("name_in_spy_tool")

E.g.

YourTreeObj.Element.GetAttributeValueText("SelectionModel")

Hi Aracknid,

Thanks for you replay.
To retreive list of SelectionModel sub-properties i use this code:

Code: Select all

object oSelectionModel = treeAdapter.GetAttributeValue<object>("SelectionModel");
PropertyInfo piPropertyNames = oSelectionModel.GetType().GetProperty("PropertyNames");
but i have no idea how to get sub-properties values. Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

I think this post could help with accessing Dynamic properties?...

Hi,

I'm glad it helped! Any chance you can post the code you put together? I think more examples like this would help other people too ;)

This piece of code resolved my problem:

Code: Select all

Tree treeAdapter = treeTableInfo.FindAdapter<Tree>();
JavaObjectWrapper selectionModelWrapper = treeAdapter.GetAttributeValue<JavaObjectWrapper>("SelectionModel");
string selectedIndices = selectionModelWrapper.GetObjectProperty("SelectedIndices").ToString();
Thanks for help!
