Run a recording for all items in a drop down list

Post by maamer » Thu Jan 31, 2019 5:37 pm

Hello all,
i ran into a problem. i have a drop down list and i am running my recording (1. click on drop down, 2. click on the item) through data driven with simple data table.

how ever this drop down list is changing with respect to the account i am using in the application. so my DDT is failure. i am thinking to scrape off all the items in a list [] and run my recording for the items in this list. i have something like this

IList<Ranorex.Atag> dropdown = repo.digitalbanking.dropdownitemInfo.CreateAdapters<Ranorex.Atag>();

i want to do something like this.

foreach (Ranorex.Atag item in dropdown){

now, how to bind each item in click action of my variable?. could anyone please help me with that.

Thank you.

If you mean how to bind a variable in recording started from code, then I’m afraid, there is no such option. Running recordings from code is, in my opinion, a very bad idea. I would rather consider creating/editing data connector from code. Check for example this post, which describes how to create/update a csv data connector from code.
