Ranorex and OCR

Post by AppTester » Fri Jun 08, 2012 5:42 pm

Does Ranorex support OCR?

Say I'm testing a financial graphing tool such as Bloomberg for example, and I want to validate data on certain point. Assume that it's impossible to add the plotted point on the graph to the repository or get its xpath. Also assume that Ranroex does not support generating xpaths at runtime. Then I'm thinking another way to validate data is to get an image from one day, then the next day get the image for the same product from the day before, and see if there's a difference. A differnce between the same ticker for the same point in time would point to the test breaking.

But in general, my question is, does Ranorex support OCR in version 3.2.3? And if so what C# syntax would be useful for me? Any useful links would help me too.

Unfortunately not really, we recognize text of GDI UIs.
It should work with the image based functionality of Ranorex: Image-Based Automation, How to do image based automation, do you already have tried it this way?
