Hi,

I would suggest you to examine Mobile Key Press action described here...
http://www.ranorex.com/support/user-gui ... tions.html
If you want user code, then simply convert the recorded/manually added Mobile Key Press action to user code. Just right click the action in recording module and from the appeared menu select View Code or Convert to User Code.

  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

Hi,

No, there is no support for soft-keyboard of [virtual] mobile devices, except the 11 'action-keys' that can be found under Add New Action > Mobile Key Press menu.

But you could use a combination of actions like <Set Value + mobile action key> or, on virtual device <Click on text control + key sequence + mobile action key>.

It worked for me in most of the cases (as for exceptions, I have some image based tests)

Hi aswinip,

Please ensure that your method for text input looks like the following
repo.App.EditText.Element.SetAttributeValue("Text", "[email protected]");
Please let me know if this solved your problem.

Regards,
