the approach you want to implement is basically not the way Ranorex is designed for.
Basically Ranorex is a "Black Box Testing Tool".
I would propose to use either image based recognition or the GDI plug-in to automate your tests in your scenario.

Have a look at following links to get more information about these two techniques: ... re-plug-in ... ition.html

Hi, ashishabrol
Are you still on this forum? I have some questions regarding your post (that 2-year-old). Would greatly appreciate your reply.
Best regards,

Set obj=Window("Form1").ActiveX("SSListBar").object

Window("Form1").ActiveX("SSListBar").FireEvent "ListItemClick", obj.Groups.item(1).ListItems.item(1)

I have searched a lot in the api and didnt find anything.

I have a dummy application (very small size) which has the control. I can post you if you want.
