How to tell if you are at the end of a swipable element

Post by fsiglia » Wed Sep 19, 2018 4:08 pm

Hi everyone, I would like to know if there is a Ranorex API method to tell if, inside a swipable element, we have reached the end so that by doing another swipe the visible area don't change. Thanks in advance!

Hi fsiglia,

No, there is no way to check or control the swipe action. You'll need to find the correct swipe length by trial and error, but once found, it should, in most scenarios, be correct :D

Cheers,
Robin

Not necessarily, if the element is filled dynamically, with random number of items ;)

Yeah, true that. Added a *should* to my answer :P

ok, I will stick with the current method then. I take a snapshot of the current view before every swipe so that I can compare the elements found before with the elements found after the swipe. If they are the same I've reached the end of the swipable area.
