How to invoke Android Method

Post by QaTester » Fri Mar 07, 2014 7:55 pm


Is there a way to invoke an android method like you would a java method done here: ... t2320.html

I looked through the api documentation and there doesn't appear to be any "InvokeMethod()" for the AndroidElement class like there is for the JavaElement class.

I looked into calling "InvokeAction()" on the AndroidElement's element property but there's only two actions available: "Touch" and "SetOrientation".

Hello QaTester,

Unfortunately it is not possible to invoke methods in android like it is possible with java methods. Therefore, only the common methods (Touch, SetOrientation, etc) are available. Thank you for your understanding.
