Accessing Dynamic Properys

Post by KrepThom » Tue Jun 16, 2015 12:48 pm

I'm trying to test some Comboboxes and i've encounterd some troubles.


The Text on the left is the name of the Combobox. I want to read validate the name in my program, but i have no means to read the name.

The name is a dynamic property of the combobox, not a textbox as you can see in the spyview below


In Ranorex 5 the property is displayed in the Spy-Property section, but i am using Ranorex 3 and there you cant even see this Property in Spy


I am using the Ranorex.ComboBox Class in my program to handle this Adapter.

Maybe you have an Idea how it is possible to read the text value.

Kind Regards Thomas Kreppel

I see that the element in question is WPF-based? The most probable reason why you see more details in Ranorex 5.x Spy is that there was introduced new and significantly improved WPF plugin in Ranorex 5.3.0. Ranorex 3.x is pretty old and no longer supported, so I'm afraid, your only hope is to update to latest 5.3.2.
