Updating ListItem setter with string value

Post by jlowder » Mon Oct 31, 2011 8:36 pm

After a few years I'm back to using Ranorex, only this time I'm using it purely from Visual Studio 2010.

As part of my test I'm creating my own object repository, but instead of creating a new entry for each item in a list, I wanted to set a string value in the Xpath ID. Problem is, I can't pass in a string to a ListItem control via get/set.

My code looks like:

Code: Select all


        public ListItem Market
        {
            get
            {
                return Practice.FindSingle("/list[@controlid='1000']/listitem[@text='" + _Market + "']");
            }
                      
        }
Calling the object currently looks like:

Code: Select all

 myMaint.Market.Click();
What is the best way to pass in the "_Market" value to be clicked on?

Thanks,

Jason

You can either make the "_Market" a property itself, setting that property before calling "Market":
public string _Market
{
    get;set;
}
...
myMaint._Market = "yourValue";
myMaint.Market.Click();
Or you change "Market" to a method:
public ListItem Market(string textValue)
{
    return Practice.FindSingle("/list[@controlid='1000']/listitem[@text='" + textValue + "']");                     
}
...
myMaint.Market("yourValue").Click();
With Ranorex 3.X you can also use variables inside paths to change the value used for @text, however, you should then use Ranorex Studio to create a Ranorex Test Suite. See following chapter in the Ranorex User Guide:

Thanks, I was clearly over thinking it. :-)
