Action "Touch": Random element

Post by cristiandiaz.mirada » Thu Nov 20, 2014 6:16 pm


Is it possible to use "Touch" action so that it selects a different element each time?

Say for example:

Where "3" is the ID of one given element I want to "Touch".
Then, having different containers in my application, is there any way I can indicate Ranorex to randomly pick up "3", or "2", or "1" randomly?

A big thank you in advance.

You will need to create a UserCodeMethod in order to achieve the mentioned behavior.

For example:
Table table = "/table[...]";

IList<Container> myList =  table.FindDescendants<Container>();

//Create new Random number
Random r = new Random();
int random = r.Next(myList.Count -1);

//Touch random entry
