IOSElement.PressKeys crashes if number.

Post by stapes » Thu Nov 19, 2015 1:11 pm

I am using .PressKeys to input data into fields that I know are UITextView fields on an IOS application.

It mostly works fine, until I try to enter a number, or a full stop, or an @ character.

This crashes the application.

Here is my code:

Code: Select all

public void MyPressKeys(IosElement io, string MyString)
        {
        	foreach(char c in MyString)
			{
				Report.Info ("Custom Message",c.ToString ());
				io.PressKeys (c.ToString ());
			}
        	
        }

Code: Select all

public void UserCode_decodeTestForm()
        {

        	Ranorex .IosTable  adapter = repo.RichardPullinIPad .EmptyList.As<IosTable>(); // this elementcontains all the required fields
        	
        	int indexOfMyTextFields=0; // add 1 to it each time we encounter one

        	string[] MyData=new string[4] {"John","Smith","07914079871","[email protected]"};
        	
        	foreach (var e in adapter.Children  )
        	{

        		if(e.ToString ()=="{Container:UITableViewWrapperView}") // this contains all my text fields
        		{
        			int noOfChildrenIn=e.Children .Count ;
        			
        			if(noOfChildrenIn > 0)
        			{
        				foreach (var e2 in e.Children )
        				{
        					if(e2.ToString ()=="{Cell:UITableViewCell}")
        					{
        						foreach (var e3 in e2.Children )
        						{
        								if(e3.ToString ().Contains ("{Text:"))
        								{
        									if(e3.Enabled )
        									{
        										// THIS IS ONE OF OUR TEXT FIELDS!! 
        										indexOfMyTextFields +=1;

        										Ranorex .IosElement io=e3.As <IosElement >();
        										Report .Info ("Custom Message","Attempting to touch." );
        										io.Touch(); // this worked

        										if(indexOfMyTextFields<5)
        										{
        											Report .Info ("Custom Message","Attempting to enter data." + MyData[indexOfMyTextFields-1] );
        											MyPressKeys (io,MyData[indexOfMyTextFields-1]);
        										}

        										if(indexOfMyTextFields==5)
        										{
        											// this is date field - next problem
        										}
        									}        									
        								}        							
        						}						        						
        					}        					
        				}        				
        			}        			
        		}        		
        	}
        } 
The application crashes as soon as I try to type full stop, @, or any number.

It has been suggested this may be something to do with the keyboards that appear on the ipad screen.

Any ideas?

Solved my own problem again.

Used Ranorex.IOSElement.Element.SetAttributeValue instead.
