Android Mobile Automation

Post by sanjeevkannan » Thu May 03, 2018 1:15 pm

I preparing a automation test suite for the Office mobile applications, i am recording a normal website where i need to enter my username and password which is working fine, i couldn't access the Sign In button for some reason though i have selected the SIgn In button from the repository. I have tried Touch, Double Tap and all the possible actions, i have very limited options under Mobile Key Press action, Can someone please help me how to access that Sign In button with the right action item

At first, recording is not supported on mobile devices since Ranorex 8.0. At second, it's impossible to tell why you are not able to acces certain element without seeing the snapshot from your mobile app. But if you already have the SignIn button in repository, you should be able to drag&drop it to recording of your choice and use mobile device action offered after drop? But as mentioned, there is not much anyone here can do or suggest without, at very least, snapshot (NOT screenshot!).
