Non-UI Testing

Next to automate testing of the user interface of mobile applications it’s also possible to perform non-UI tests invoking technology dependent actions (see ⇢Detailed list of actions). This feature allows you to get information about the devices hardware, the operating system etc.

Non-UI testing on Android

You are able to get the device info of your Android device directly by right-clicking the mobile device in Ranorex Spy.

Get device info of Android test device

You can access the non-UI testing methods in the action table by adding an invoke action on the mobile app.

Invoke non-UI testing methods

You can also access the non-UI testing methods within User Code Actions as well as Code Modules.

The code should look something like the following:

var app = repo.AndroidApp.Self.As<AndroidApp>();  
// get an AndroidDeviceInfo object holding all available device info  
var info = app.GetDeviceInfo();  
// get a list of SMS from the device  
var sms = app.GetSms();  
// get a list of calls from the device  
var calls = app.GetCalls();  
// report the manufacturer of the device  
Report.Info("Manufacturer: " + info.Manufacturer);  
// report the manufacturer of the device  
Report.Info("SMS: " + sms.ToString());  
// report the manufacturer of the device  
Report.Info("Calls: " + calls.ToString());
Dim app = repo.AndroidApp.Self.[As](Of AndroidApp)()  
' get an AndroidDeviceInfo object holding all available device info  
Dim info = app.GetDeviceInfo()  
' get a list of SMS from the device  
Dim sms = app.GetSms()  
' get a list of calls from the device  
Dim calls = app.GetCalls()  
' report the manufacturer of the device  
Report.Info("Manufacturer: " & info.Manufacturer)  
' report the manufacturer of the device  
Report.Info("SMS: " & sms.ToString())  
' report the manufacturer of the device  
Report.Info("Calls: " & calls.ToString())
