RanoXPath in table

Post by fknuvers » Wed Mar 28, 2012 8:24 am

Hi,
I'm quite new to Ranorex and RanoreXPath. I'm working with my application and I'm not sure how to do the following:
I've got a usertable in which I need to select a row in which a certain user is present:

tbody/tr[7]/td[1]/div[@innertext~'^PRCS\ User\ Consultant\ \ \ \ \ '] (in this case a consultant)

After the user there are three columns with a checkbox for adding as a leader, a member or a viewer of my project.

tbody/tr[7]/td[4]/div/input[@id='V6']

Now I don't know how to combine these to find the user and then select the right checkbox.
Also the [7] presents rows ad columns. Should I change these to find the proper row?
I hope someone can help me out.

Kind regards, Frans

Hi,

have a look at following paragraph of a blog post which explains how to identify the telephone number in a row holding a specific name using RanoreXPath:

Hi,

I've tried to make the repository item work according to the link you supplied.
I'm afraid it didn't work and I don't really understand how to do this.
I'm trying to select the Edit link where the user has a certain name.
Now I've tried several solutions:

Solution 1:
Try to select a checkbox where the Name = PRCS User Consultant

tbody/tr/td/div[@innertext~'PCRS User Consultant.+']/td/div/a[@innertext='Edit']
The result is that the recording can't find the item.


Solution 2:
Select the row with the Name and select the following-sibling cell:

table/tbody/tr[6]/td[1]/div[@innertext'~PRCS User Consultant.+']/following-sibling::cell

As long as I don't put the /following-sibling::cell in the command the Highlight Element will find the object.
When i add /following-sibling::cell and chose to highlight the object, it can't be found.


Solution 3:
Select the row with de Name and try to select the checkbox:

table/tbody/tr/td/div[@innertext~'PRCS User Consultant.+']/../div/input
When I want to highlight the element, I get a message stating:
The item exists but could not be highlighted because it could not be made visible.

Although I've been trying for several hours, I can't find the correct solution.
I hope someone can help me out as I really need to use this option in my tests.

Frans

Hi,

Please send us a Ranorex Snapshot file of the specific table.
This Snapshot will help us analyzing the structure of your application.
Following link will show you how to generate a snapshot file.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
With this post I send the snapshot file. I can't attach a screenshot file as I use OpenOffice.
My trial period expires tomorrow, so I hope to get an answer soon.
Kind regards, Frans

Hi,

can you please provide us a snapshot file holding the whole table and not only the target tag.

Hi,
With this reply I enclose two files I sent before by E-mail. I'm not sure if there's enough information in the files. I Can't make new snapshot files as my trial license has expired and my employer has not decided yet if he wants to buy a license.
Kind regards, Frans

Hi,

I'm sorry, but the snapshots are not very useful.
Without having a snapshot covering the whole table we cannot provide you a fitting solution.
