Validation of toast in Android

Post by mysanchez » Thu Nov 21, 2013 1:38 pm

How do you validate if a toast message appears inside an Activity? And does it store it in the repository as a unique UI element which is different from a toast message with different text but from the same Activity?

Thanks,
Miguel

I have tried the approach of changing the RanoreXpath to the ff:

Code: Select all

/mobileapp[@title='yourAppTitle']//text[@caption~'ToastCaption]  
It does not work for me even if I change the app title to the package name like: com.example.mobileapptest
I am not sure if this is the right approach, because I am not even able to see the toast in the Ranorex Spy, so I am wondering how to even store the toast caption in the repository.

Regards,
Miguel
