Custom TextView Class - Problem reading text values

Post by VeselinK » Wed Mar 19, 2014 12:37 pm


In our project we have defined our own class for TextViews to have some easier handling of formatting TextViews. When we use our CustomTextView class which directly inherits from android.widget.TextView we can not read out the text anymore from Ranorex. There are no 'context' or 'text' attributes in the selected text element's details. Is there a way to configure Ranorex in a way that it handles our CustomTextView as a standard text view so we can access to text again?

Ranorex Version:
Windows 7 Pro SP1 with .NET Runtime Version: 4.0.30319.1
