Hi,

Please upload a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) of the problematic menu. Screenshot is unfortunately useless as nobody here probably wants to retype xpaths from screenshot. The things are much easier to understand and explain with snapshots! ;)

Additionally, please describe what exactly do you want to achieve? It's not quite clear to me what's your workflow and goal?

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

public void SelectMenuItem(string ItemtoSelect, RepoItemInfo MenuItemInfo)
{
WebDocument webDoc = "/dom[@domain='"+ SelDom +"']";
var dropdown = webDoc.FindSingle<UlTag>(".//iframe[@name='main']//div[#'ctl00_phDS_ds_ToolBar_menu13']/ul");
var options = dropdown.FindDescendants<DivTag>();

var found = false;

foreach(var opt in options)
{
if(opt.InnerText == ItemtoSelect)
{
opt.Click();
found = true;
break;
}
}

if(found == false)
{
throw new InvalidOperationException("Select Menu Item option not found for ");
}
}
