WPF Plugin,WpfImprovedOnly: Row,Cell,Text has no values

Post by aruebesam » Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:22 am

I'm facing an issue using the following set-up:
- Windows 7
- Ranorex 7.0
- WPF with DevExpress application
- WPF Plugin mode=WpfImprovedOnly, Show All Elements=true

The issue concerns the tracking of cells in a table row. With the above setting the xpath tracked by spy is "row/container/cell/text" but the text element does not contain any attribute values. Expected is that for example text[@text='<displayed value>'], but even so <displayed value> is displayed, none of the text attributes has a value.

When changing the WPF Plugin mode to "UiaOnly", spy tracks the same element with the xpath: "table\container\element\elment[@uiatomationvaluevalue='<displayed value>']

It would be helpful if you could post a Ranorex snapshot, saved both with WpfImprovedOnly and UiaOnly and if possible, also a small sample app with problematic table. This would be a great help for Ranorex devs ;)
