Spy Delay Option -> Feature Request

Post by atom » Wed Jul 22, 2009 12:58 pm

Hiya

Have mentioned this before, but I think is a really useful option
What we want is to tell the spy to capture the gui elements in 5 seconds time
The user then in those 5 seconds gets the AUT to display the elements he wants to capture
When the 5 seconds is up SpyTool captures the GUI

This is useful for us, because in our AUT we have a custom grid component that is Unknown
When a cell is edited in this grid a control is displayed... we can never capture this control
because when focus goes to the SpyTool to refresh, the control dissapears

Thanks

p.s. Its actually quite blocking for us, as the AUT also has unrecognised menu's and popup windows
that we cant capture as when they lose focus they dissapear

All what you have to do is instant tracking!

You mean clicking on the "Track" button?

this doesnt work as as soon as you left click on the AUT the Spy tool gets focus

e.g. I have my custom grid, I left click on a cell -> focus goes to Spy tool
and the control for the cell is then not displayed

No,
I mean Instant Tracking!
Use '<CTRL> + <LWin> key combination' at any time without clicking the track button to get the element from mouse point.

When you have instant tracked the object you want, then press Scroll Lock on your keyboard. It will snapshot the object and it's children in Spy.
