Validate.NotExists?

Post by max » Mon Oct 12, 2009 4:00 pm

Why isn't there a Validate.NotExists-Method? I think it would be useful.
What is your suggested way to check if for example a form doesn't exist?

Following code works for me till now:
try
{
	if(Host.Local.FindSingle(path) != null)
	{
		return true;
	}
	return false;
}
catch(ElementNotFoundException ex)
{
	//Do something with ex
	return false;
}

You are right, a Validate.NotExists method would really be useful. That's why the upcoming version Ranorex 2.2 will provide such methods.

(Additional information: Validate.NotExists methods did not exist in previous version, since Validate.Exists/NotExists had problems with repository items. These problems will be solved with Ranorex 2.2, allowing the Validate.NotExists methods to be added.)
