Post by Aaparna16 » Mon Sep 28, 2020 3:37 am

Hi All,
I am new to Ranorex. I have below requirement-
Few pdf files are placed in below location and i need to extract name of all the files.
location: H:\Test\Project
I am trying to code using C#. But the below code is not working.
Thanks for the help!

IList<Ranorex.Text> childLstItems = GlobalVariable.repo.RNDIDDTEST.ItemsView.FindChildren<Ranorex.Text>();
for(int i=0; i<=childLstItems.Count-1; i++)
if((childLstItems).TextValue == "testfile") //this is a pdf file name that i am trying to validate
Report.Success("Successfully login");

I assume you are trying to get the list of files from an UI element? In this case, please post a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) of the element in question. Without, at very least, snapshot, it's very hard to suggest something reliable. Thanks.

  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
