Working with WPF telerik controls

Post by Tnimni » Tue Jun 24, 2014 10:05 am

Hi,

i have an application i have to test, the application is in WPF and Telerik controls.

i am unable to access some of the objects beyond the top level.

i.e. grid is identified as Grid but i can't see the "lines" and "columns" within the Grid.

i read here http://www.ranorex.com/blog/enabling-au ... s-controls

that it is possible to extend some control with Accessibility object, however you state that UI Automation is needed for WPF controls

could you please provide an example on how to do it?

does ranorex support Telerik controls at all Out of the box?

Regards,

Hello Tnimni,

As mentioned in our blog entry some 3rd party controls are not built with accessibility in mind. In other words, Ranorex is not able to recognize the elements out of the box due to the missing accessibility. A comprehensive sample on how to implement accessibility on 3rd party controls can also be found within the blog. Please also find a sample project as a download here:
