Trigger Event from Application/Ranorex for automation

Post by sukhmeet032795 » Tue Jul 12, 2016 2:29 pm

Hi,

Is there any way to know that the UI of the winform/wpf application has completely loaded with data. Is there anything that can be done such as sending a triggering event from the application which can be caught by the user code of Ranorex or ranorex returning the entire payload. I have already explored WaitForNotExists (http://www.ranorex.com/forum/wait-for-n ... t3620.html) as a way of achieving this. But is there anything better?

Short of collaboration with the developer, there isn't going to be an easy way to hook directly into the AUT.

Now if do have influence with development, you certainly could have the app generate some sort of flag to indicate your desired state.
