vbAccelerator S-Grid Control

Post by slither » Thu Jun 30, 2011 5:00 pm

I'm currently trying to test a VB6 application.

For the most part it seems to work well, except I'm unable to get any data of the data in the grid controls.
The controls themselves are OCX/Activex vbaccelerator http://www.vbaccelerator.com/codelib/sgrid/sgrid.htm S-Grid controls.

With the GDI feature of Ranorex, it does get the grid's headers properly, but not the data rows.

#1 - Is there any possible way of automating/reading these grids with Ranorex?

#2 - If impossible with Ranorex, does anyone have any suggestions for workarounds? (Even if it involves some deep .net stuff, or going the native C/C++ route...)

Thanks.

Thanks.

I should note that I'm using the following:

Win7x64 SP1
Ranorex 3.0.2 (in this case, Ranorex Spy x86)

Hi,

Currently it is only possible to get the cells with the GDI Plug-In.

A possible solution would be to implement MSAA by your own. Google Search
