cannot get control's type

Post by cherry » Wed Jun 06, 2007 1:36 pm

I want to test a menustrip on the GUI. I ran the code I attached, the program could not find the type of the control. I mean, it did find a control which text is "MenuStrip", but it didn't tell me it's a menustrip. Is there any problem? Thanks.

static void Main()

Form form = Application.FindFormTitle("MiniView");
Control menuStrip = form.FindChildText("MenuStrip");

Please check the control name of the menu with RanorexSpy. If the control name is not empty then you should find the control with the method FindControlName().

Is your menu a .Net2.0 MenuStrip Control or a 3rd party control?
