Mobile Key Press {Enter} doesn't seem to do anything

Post by ChrisG » Mon Feb 15, 2016 4:23 pm

Windows version Windows 10 64 Bit
iOS 9.2.1
Ranorex 5.4.3

I have a phonegap app which runs on iOS which I managed to instrument the ipa file fine. I then enter a username and password then click on the 'Go' button on the keyboard. When I was recording the test script it picked up all the button taps fine. However whenever it came to running the script the pressing on 'Go' button didn't seem to work.

Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Touch", "Touch item 'ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.Text' at Center", repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.TextInfo, new RecordItemIndex(1));
repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.Text.Touch();
Delay.Milliseconds(500);

Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Set Value", "Setting attribute value to 'chrisg' on item 'ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.Text'.", repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.TextInfo, new RecordItemIndex(2));
repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.Text.Element.SetAttributeValue("value", "chrisg");
Delay.Milliseconds(100);

Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Touch", "Touch item 'ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.Password' at Center", repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.PasswordInfo, new RecordItemIndex(3));
repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.Password.Touch();
Delay.Milliseconds(500);

Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Set Value", "Setting attribute value to 'testing' on item 'ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.Password'.", repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.PasswordInfo, new RecordItemIndex(4));
repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.VitalFLO.Password.Element.SetAttributeValue("value", "testing");
Delay.Milliseconds(100);

Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Keyboard", "Key '{ENTER}' press on 'ComTlcVitalFLO'.", repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.SelfInfo, new RecordItemIndex(5));
repo.ComTlcVitalFLO.Self.PressKeys("{ENTER}");
Delay.Milliseconds(100);

Above is the code from the script. Now for the life of me I can't figure out why the button press is not working. Is there any issue with Press.Keys {ENTER} that I haven't seen.

Hello Chris,

Basically, it should be possible to perform a mobile key press {ENTER} if the keyboard is enabled at that moment.

Alternatively, I would suggest adding the Go-button to the repository via Ranorex Spy and adding a touch action for that button.

If this doesn't solve the issue, please upload a Ranorex Snapshot of the corresponding element. If you want, you also could send the snapshot to [email protected].

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Johannes
