XPath for finding both modal and in-application windows.

Post by odd » Wed May 04, 2011 4:41 pm

Our application have MDIClient area, where the windows are placed by default, so the XPath will be like:

Code: Select all

/application/mdi-client/form
But, sometimes those windows are modal ant thier XPath is like:

Code: Select all

/form
I can find them both by using "/.//form" but its takes too much time. Is there a way to find them faster?
Have been trying XPath "/form | /application/mdi-client/form", but it seems or operator does not work.

P.S. Sorry for my english.

Hello,

alternative paths for one element is not possible. You need to use a path that works for both and that is only the one you already mentioned (/.//form). Else you need to write code and there you can try to find one path and if that fails you can try to find the other path. Use TryFindSingle().
