Issue with WPF object interaction and identification

Post by MeghaVerma » Fri Jul 31, 2020 8:38 am


I have two queries to post:

1) There are instances of disabled WPF components like radiobutton, switch(list item) getting clicked through Ranorex.
Has anyone faced such issue before or it requires fix from WPF application side?

2) When character ellipsis ( three dots appearing after long text) appears in label for button (like ABC... is displayed on button) , the label is not identified as text element by Ranorex spy. In fact spy is not able to record it. Can anyone let us know the reason behind it?

Could you please post a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) showing both problems? Also, for the first problem, don;t forget to include also entire xpath, as used in repository.

If Ranorex clicks disabled elements, and you don't want this, you must improve the xpath behind the element. For example, you can add attribute @enabled='true' .This will assure that the element is not clicked until enabled.

  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
