Setting focus to the correct Browser tab

Post by Aracknid » Fri Jul 22, 2011 9:36 pm

I've got a browser window stored as a Form object. It has multiple tabs with different web pages, each stored as a Web Document object (DOM).

I want to click something on one of the tabs, but another tab has focus and is the one being displayed on top.

How do I make the Web Document I want to work with the active one? I've tried EnsureVisible, Focus, etc... and it never comes to the front. Is there something like an Activate command for a DOM object to automatically bring it to the front? Do I need to write code to walk through the Form object and click the tab that I want?

Thanks,

Aracknid

Please could you post us a Ranorex Snapshot of the entire form to check if it is possible to bring the tab to foreground?

Sorry, I ended up changing the way my framework works and changed our browser default to not use tabs, so while this may still be an issue, it is not one for me anymore.
