Not Able to find menu item

Post by prasoon.jmit » Sun Dec 22, 2019 5:01 pm


I have grid header. When I click on the header, context menu comes. Problem I am facing is that I am able to find the header using spy but I am NOT able to locate context menu item.

I tried to use recording but using that is hanging the application.

Please suggest how I can resolve this issue.

Is your problem that the context menu doesn't get opened when using the track function of Ranorex Spy? If it is, try to press F12 on your keyboard, this pauses the track function and you should be able to open the context menu. Afterwards, release the F12 key and track the context menu.

If it's not, please upload a Ranorex snapshot of the element.
