Skip Tracking while spying

Post by jainaakash » Mon Jun 28, 2010 2:25 pm

Hi Team,

I have an object which is displayed on click on another object and it disappears when the mouse moves off the object. How do I spy / Track that item.?

I click the Track button, the Ranorex spy becomes active, now I want Ranorex to skip Tracking for the first click and then once the actual object is loaded after the first click on my application, I want Ranorex to record the properties of this object. I know how it works in QTP but that doesn't work here.

Regards,
Aakash

From Spy turn on Highlight Elements.
Also from Spy turn on Always on Top.
Then from your AUT open the object you want tracked.
Once that is open hit Left Control - Left Windows keys to see the element highlighted.
You should see that spy has captures elements of that object.
Then you can hit Scroll Lock to have Spy take a current snapshot of that element, its properties and its children (if applicable).
If this or any response has helped you, please reply to the thread stating that it worked so other people with a similar issue will know how you fixed your issue!

The following user guide section should also explain how to do that - it's similar to ciege's explanation, but additionally contains some nice screenshots :wink:
