Popup Watcher Not Executing Callback

Post by chromium » Thu Jan 15, 2015 5:07 pm

I am trying to test a popup watcher that takes a screenshot and fails the test case if an error message pops up, which could occur randomly at any time. I am having issues with getting it to work, however. When running it I get an exception from Ranorex and the test completes as a Success. This is my code:

Code: Select all

	Dim mypopupwatcher As New PopupWatcher()
	mypopupwatcher.Watch(repo.ErrorMessage.SelfInfo, AddressOf geterrortxt)

	Public Sub geterrortxt()
		Dim errormessagetxt As String

		If repo.ErrorMessage.SelfInfo.Exists() Then
			errormessagetxt = repo.ErrorMessage.MessageTxt.TextValue
		End If
	End Sub
What could be causing this issue?

Hello chromium,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to stop or fail the current test run using the PopupWatcher since the watcher doesn’t run in the main thread. The “System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException” seems not to be directly related to your PopupWatcher.
