Ranorex not recording stuff on iPad

Post by stapes » Thu Nov 12, 2015 2:03 pm

I am testing an application running on an iPad.

It has been instrumented using RxAutomationLib 2.1.2

There is a text field.

The Ranorex recorder insists on identifying these things by the value of the text - which is a nuisance because it is a variable?!?

When I touch it, a UI Picker appears at the foot of the screen.

Whilst recording, Ranorex somehow doesn't record this touch. Why not?

I then tried to validate the UI Picker at the bottom.

It does not appear in the Validation screen.

Hello stapes,

The RanoreXPath for UI elements is built on specific path weight rules.
It seems like there is no other attribute available, which is ranked higher.
May I ask to upload a Ranorex Snapshot of the corresponding text field.

Is it possible to navigate to the UI Picker manually via Ranorex Spy?
It would be great if you could upload a Snapshot of this element.

Thank you in advance.
