Accessing raw text values of cells within table.

Post by yproserpio » Tue Jan 10, 2017 11:12 am


I'm trying to access the text property of cells within a table that is dynamically filled based upon selected parameters.
With Ranorex Spy I can see the correct number of rows and cells within the rows but the cell text is a value that doesn't represent the actual visible text.

actualtext.jpg (7.79 KiB) Viewed 1666 times

I tried to use GDI to access the rawtext but it doesn't seem like this can be enabled on a table control, I was only able to enable it on the project level which doesn't help with the table.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm afraid, there is not much we can do or suggest without at least Ranorex snapshot available. Please upload a Ranorex snapshot (not screenshot) of the table in question, both with enabled GDI and without GDI. Thanks.
