HTML5 Table No Role

Post by Mayra » Fri Dec 20, 2013 2:09 am

Hi,
I am evaluating Ranorex, I am not sure why the Table appears as there is no Role.

why would it be that there is no adapter for the table?

Hi,

WebElements like the table have no specific Role, they all have the Role Unknown (by design), but they of course have a specific capability, like TableTag, DivTag, and so on.

Regards,
Markus

Hi,
Thanks for responding.
In your FAQ I found the following:
"If your controls are recognized as 'Unknown' or 'Element', Ranorex cannot assign them a role. You can't use special attributes or actions with these elements, but you can usually still create a path that identifies the element to execute minimally mouse clicks. "
I am just wondering why this is happening, even my buttons and images appear with no role and I wouldn't want to only have mouse clicks available for my testing.
Thanks.
