UIAutomation Invoke, Toggle, RangeValue, and Value patterns

Post by tallahassee101 » Tue Apr 05, 2011 6:48 pm

The release notes for 3.01 state:
Provided additional support for UIAutomation Invoke, Toggle, RangeValue, and Value patterns

Could you please explain where these tools are? They sound very useful and a search of the website only brings up the release notes. I'd like to know if I can have a RangeValue variable ( ie. 0-99 )?

I think you misunderstood that release note slightly. UIAutomation patterns are interfaces a WPF control can implement to provide information to and allow interaction with automation software like Ranorex.

With V3.0.1 we added better support for the mentioned patterns, e.g. if a WPF control supports the Value pattern, the corresponding Ranorex elements now also has a UIAutomationValue capability providing access to the "Value" attribute.

Thank you for the explanation. Please consider this a feature request, as this would prove incredibly useful to our test team. We could desperately use a way to set a random ranged value on a variable, in other words using the GUI to "Set Value" and then be able to enter a range in the value column. We have large amounts of user code doing this as there is no way to do this through the GUI.
