Not able to find List items text value

Post by alpesh.dhakad » Fri Nov 02, 2018 3:57 pm

Hi ,

I am using Desktop application and I need to retrieve text from ListItems present in List .
I have written below code and i could not find text values. When I try to debug it is showing "null" for S and for dropDownListText showing Timeout. Though in count it is having 4.

Please refer attached screenshot.

Please suggest solution for the same. I am stuck from so many days


IList<Ranorex.ListItem> dropDownListText = repo.ContextMenu.PARTContent.Items;
foreach (Ranorex.ListItem element in dropDownListText)
ListItem s = repo.ContextMenu.PARTContent.Items.ElementAt(0);
if (repo.ContextMenu.PARTContent.Items.Count > 0)
Report.Log(ReportLevel.Success,"Success ");

In my opinion, your code tries to read the "Text" attribute from wrong Text repo element (always first one) and not the Text element, associated with the actually looped ListItem? Please upload a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) of the problematic list. Screenshots are not useful here. Thanks.
